Sandhollow State Park

Sand Hollow State Park Sand Mountain, located between St. George and Hurricane, has long been a popular playground for people with dune buggies, dirt bikes and 4-wheelers. Now, the sparkling water of a new reservoir laps at its base, and modern campgrounds and picnic areas have been developed adjacent to the beaches. With its warm, blue waters and red sandstone landscape, Sand Hollow has become one of Utah’s most popular parks. Boat and fish on Sand Hollow Reservoir, explore and ride the dunes of Sand Mountain on an off-highway vehicle, then RV or tent camp in the new campground. The reservoir offers good populations of bass and bluegill. http://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/sand-hollow/

North Rim – Grand Canyon

The less traveled part of the Grand Canyon, the North Rim has some of the Grand Canyon’s most spectacular views and it’s a day-trip from the La Quinta Inn & Suites in St. George. The three developed viewpoints on the North Rim offer a sense of looking across the expanse of the canyon, rather than into its depths. Point Imperial and Cape Royal are reached via a winding scenic drive. Point Imperial, the highest point on the North Rim at 8,803 feet, overlooks the Painted Desert and the eastern end of Grand Canyon. Here the canyon transforms as the narrow walls of Marble Canyon, visible only as a winding gash, open dramatically to become “grand.” Layers of red and black Precambrian rocks, not visible at Bright Angel Point, add contrast and color. Cape Royal provides a panorama up, down, and across the canyon. With seemingly unlimited vistas to the east and west, it is popular for both sunrise and sunset. The sweeping turn of the Colorado River at Unkar Delta is framed through the natural arch of Angels Window. Look for the Desert View Watchtower across the canyon on the South Rim. www.nps.gov.
