    Welcome to Snow Canyon State Park Campground, nestled near St. George, Utah. This place is a gem for anyone looking to immerse themselves in stunning red rock scenery and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. The campground is open all year, so you can plan your visit whenever it suits you.

    The campground offers a mix of tent, RV, and glamping accommodations. Some of the standout features include electric hookups, drinking water, and showers. Pets are welcome, and you can even bring your own firewood for a cozy campfire under the stars. The RV sites are paved, making it easy for big rigs to settle in, though they are a bit close together. If you're looking for more space, the non-electric sites offer a bit more breathing room.

The campground is surrounded by high red rocks, creating a picturesque setting that's perfect for photography or just soaking in the natural beauty. There are 14 miles of trails accessible from the campground, including the highly recommended Petrified Dunes trail and the short trail to Jenny Cave.

    One of the unique aspects of this campground is its proximity to lava tunnels and petrified sand dunes, adding an extra layer of adventure to your stay. The campground is also home to the ranger station, so you'll see some traffic during the day, but it quiets down nicely at night.

    If you're planning a group trip, sites like 16A and 16B are perfect for larger gatherings, offering plenty of space and privacy. For those seeking seclusion, site 22 is highly recommended for its privacy and proximity to the bathhouse.

    Overall, Snow Canyon State Park Campground is a fantastic spot for a weekend getaway or an extended stay. Whether you're here for the hiking, the views, or just to relax, you're in for a treat.

    Natural Features

    Zion is known for its dynamic geologic history. The South Campground and Amphitheater were built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the early 1930s. The project was completed and opened to the public in the spring of 1935. The Virgin River, a narrow but powerful river that has carved out the canyon over time, runs adjacent to the site. Cottonwood trees surrounding the campsite turn golden in the fall. Although the campground is moderately forested, most of the campsites are in partial to full sun but visitors can cool off in the cold river when temperatures peak during summer. Be Advised: The months of April and May bring an unusual infestation of Tent Caterpillars, which fall from trees onto tents, tables, and unsuspecting campers and can make it quite uncomfortable to sit outside. The months of July and August in particular bring a higher concentration of ants in the campsites, which seem to come out especially after the monsoons, but are present all summer long. August and September bring yellowjackets. Insecticidal treatment by visitors is not permitted.

    Nearby Attractions

    Toquerville, Utah

    Welcome to Toquerville Falls Primitive in Utah! This spot is a real treat for those who love a bit of adventure mixed with stunning natural beauty. Nestled near the falls, this camping area offers a raw and rugged experience that's perfect for those looking to get off the grid.

    First things first, getting here is no walk in the park. You absolutely need a 4WD vehicle with high clearance to tackle the rocky, rough road leading to the site. If you're driving anything less, you might want to reconsider or be prepared for a long hike. But trust me, the effort is worth it.

    Once you arrive, you'll find yourself surrounded by breathtaking waterfalls that cascade into a serene pool. The sound of the water is incredibly peaceful, making it a great backdrop for a night under the stars. There are no designated campsites, so you can set up your tent wherever you find a good spot. Just remember to use the pre-made fire rings if you plan on having a campfire.

    Don't expect any amenities here—there's no drinking water, toilets, or trash services. You'll need to bring everything you need, including plenty of water and a bathroom system. And please, pack out all your trash to keep this place beautiful for the next visitors.

    For those who love a bit of solitude, weekdays are your best bet. Weekends can get a bit rowdy with folks coming in for day trips and parties. But if you can swing a midweek visit, you'll likely have the place mostly to yourself.

    So, if you're up for a bit of a challenge and want to experience some of Utah's most stunning natural scenery, Toquerville Falls Primitive is calling your name. Just make sure you're prepared, and you'll have an unforgettable time.
