Discover the Wonder of Sand Hollow State Park

07/28/2020 | by Adam Patterson | Local Area Vacation Rentals

From the moment you step foot on this beautiful land, you’ll immediately be mesmerized by the humbling grandeur of Sand Hollow State Park. Among its landscape attractions are warm, crystal blue waters, and a beautiful red rock landscape. Whether you’re interested in cycling, kayaking, horseback riding, or anything in between, Sand Hollow is the place for you. 

Since its initiation as a part of the Utah Parks System in 2003, Sand Hollow has become one of the most visited parks in the state. Boasting 20,000 sprawling acres, you are bound to fall in love with the many offerings of Sand Hollow. With over 15,000 acres of dunes, ATV and off-highway vehicle enthusiasts will find this park perfect for their adventures. Plus – Zion National Park is within an easy driving distance, making for an absolutely perfect Utah vacation!

Sand Hollow State Park’s pristine reservoir waters are also a prime location for kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and boating, among other fun water activities. And, the reservoir is huge – over 1,322 acres! 

Just past the main gate along the northwestern edge of the reservoir are the main boat ramp and Westside campground. Along the south end of the lake are the second boat ramp and beach area for day use. Just past the beach, following the southeast and east corners of the reservoir, are the Sandpit Campground and primitive campground areas for the most adventurous among us. 

You can enter Sand Mountain through a tunnel on the south end of the reservoir. Here you will find the more than 15,000 acres of dunes for all-terrain and off-highway vehicle riding. The expansive dunes sprawl around the south and east ends of the reservoir.

For avid outdoor lovers – this park is a dream! ATV trails run over sand dune access to Sand Mountain in the park, and additional trails are located nearby. The most popular St. George ATV trails are located right here!
