The only reason I couldn't give the park a 10 is that the facilities we used with water and 30 Amp hookups were extremely tight for our 38 ft. Diesel pusher. We only have slides on the drivers side so we were able to squeeze in just barely and it took some care getting out as well. If you have slides on both sides or more than two slides forget it unless you can secure one of the larger difficult to obtain boondocking sites. Our site was paved with asphalt. There is a shelter with a picnic table at each site. The shelter is one of the main problems fitting in each space and there are scratches and scrapes on each of the shelters to prove that statement. If we can fit in there, you probably can as well if you know what you are doing. The park is probably the most beautiful state park we have ever been in. If you are a hiker or a bicyclist, this park is Nirvana. The park is just a few miles from St. George where great shopping is available. We would come back here again and again!! We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Go to Kayenta Village for a real nice day in the artist colony.

Not sure how to rate the park as we got one of the 'non-reservable' sites (number one), and it is an absolutely beautiful site with no one outside your door but gorgeous canyon views. Yes, the electric/water sites are tight but everyone gets a covered area with a lovely picnic table and a roof and an overhead light as well as a charcoal grill. Most sites share the peninsula with the covered areas (kind of like at a gas station?) but each site has it's own grill and covered area. Sites are very narrow because of these covered picnic sites and slideouts can be an issue. Our former 40' MH with a 12' height would not have fit because of the covered picnic area but our 30' was able to fit in Site 1. Not sure of any other site .

If you're in a site with electricity one word describes this place. TIGHT!!. We had enough room to open our slides but just. If you have slides on both sides you'll have to figure out what side you want open because there's not enough room for both sides. You are also right on top of the the other sites. That said they have the nicest picnic tables I have ever scene. Good lighting under the shelter you are right next to and have outdoor power. The showers we clean and they had good hot water but you have to pull the chain down and hold it down to get water. This place fills up fast this time of year and we got the last 1st come site. The non power sites are much nicer and have more room. The generator hours are kind of screwy 12 noon till 4 pm. Probably the worst time of the day to run them if you want to hike or cook dinner. Verizon MiFi and phone works pretty well, the views are great, the roads and sites are paved,and the sites aren't all that level. We would stay here again if we're in the area.

Snow Canyon SP north of St. George, Utah. Water and electric sites are $20, paved, and are lined up side-by-side with just enough room to put the slides out. Dry camping sites are $16, well-spaced, level, and have privacy due to trees and shrubs. Beautiful views of the gorgeous state park from both types of sites, however. Cell phone reception basically non-existent at the campground, but a weak and useable signal for both AT&T and Verizon was available at various points towards the northern end of the park. As others have mentioned, the NON-hookup sites are much prettier and have nice spacing between sites. I would have foregone the hookup (and saved $4!) if one on those had been available, but unfortunately they were all taken when I got there. I'd probably give a Rating of 8 for the non-hookup sites. But regardless of which type of site you stay in, the park itself is gorgeous, with terrific hiking trails and also nice paved bike paths. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

The serviced sites were very close but the unserviced sites were private and roomy. We wished we'd sucked it up and gone without water and electricity because this would have been a wonderful spot for dry camping. Overall this was a very pretty park with glorious scenery. The only complaint we had was that there were only 2 showers each for men and women which caused lineups in the morning. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hard trade-offs: beautiful and protected, red rock surroundings, lots of hiking and walking trails (natural and paved), fun to climb on petrified sand dunes, little traffic and noise; but really just 12 sites available with electric and water. This area is paved with a dump station on-site. Bathrooms and showers are functional and clean, but worn. Sites are a hard 11' wide, you are back-to-back with your neighbor. With careful positioning you might get one slide-out open a couple feet on your hook-ups side. In February there were just two sites taken, in late March all were reserved and in use. I doubt I will return, just too snug. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful place. Dedicated government employees and volunteers. Spectacular scenery. You'll want to second-guess a decision to go electric. The hookup sites are crowded. If you're like us, you'll be much happier dry camping, away from others. Make your reservations early. This is an Eden that too many have discovered already.

This place is a real gem. Surrounded by red rock and easily accessible trail for hiking. Cell service was spotty, but texting was adequate. Very friendly folks at the welcoming center. Only two sites for RV's available, but the remaining 12 or so were for reservations. I love this place and will return again when the occasion arises. Truly the most beautiful I've seen.

Would give this CG a 10 except for the closeness of the sites. These are side by sides with little or no room for slide outs. The CG is old, built before all of our slide outs. We kept ours out partially. Given that, the setting is GORGEOUS and worth of the inconvenience. Reservations are highly recommended. The camp hosts were very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. For sure. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.
July at 105 degrees, very little shade, air conditioner ran most of the night. Site-14 was level and private, has patio. We do not have a slide-out, but I guess these sites are too tight for them to be extended. Showers were a short walk but clean and no limits on water. Beautiful red rocks, lots of birds, few people. We stayed two days while attending Tuachan Musicals. Easy dump when leaving. Will stay again next year. Park employees were wonderful. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here in late November with two young children. It was our first camping trip and it couldn't have been a more perfect spot. The kids were able to ride their bikes and scooters around the campsite and campground and play football and frisbee in the grassy field just across the small road from where we parked. There are fantastic hikes, simple enough for young children with cave-like finds and fantastic natural formations. Also, there are sand dunes where my kids had a blast making "sand angels." Although the campground is small, it is really spacious. Our spot had an adjacent covered patio with picnic table and barbeque. There aren't any fire rings, but they allow you to bring one, so we brought our own fire ring and wood. The weather was very much on the verge of going from chilly to downright cold. I would not hesitate to camp at Snow Canyon again in November but I'd expect any later to bring weather too cold for enjoying the outdoor activities with young children. We only used the bathroom facilities once or twice. They were stinky but appeared to be quite clean. We did not use the showers. The only reason I'm not giving this park 10 stars is because it doesn't have sewer hook-ups and that would be really useful with our small trailer and it's small gray water tank. That would have made it perfect. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

It is tough to give a low score to such a beautiful location but, as mentioned before, the hook-up sites, #'s 1-14 are incredibly tight and the middle ones are also very uneven. Try to get sites 1-3 or 12-14 as the ones on the ends seemed to be more level. If you are willing to dry camp, there are outstanding non-hook-up sites in this park. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.
The campground hosts were very helpful last year, so we are going back for 3 months in Sept.-Nov. 2009. Spaces are small for slideouts and awning, but the area is beautiful clay mountains. There are lots of hiking and biking trails, St. George minutes away. Don't miss the hike to the Volcano top. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a park with great southwestern views, good trails for hiking and bike riding. However, the RV elect sites are closer together than the worst of any KOA sites. Picture side by sides on the hookup side and about 8-feet on the other. These are the worst hookup sites in the Utah State Park system. On the other hand many of the non-hookup sites are really nice and big and spacious. This is a 10 for none hookups and a 1 for hookup sites. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.
