Description. Despite its name, Snow Canyon State Park rarely sees the snow, for which Utah is so famous (The park was named for Mormon Prophet Lorenzo Snow). White and red Navajo sandstone, black lava rock, and sand dunes create an incredible landscape for photography, hiking, horseback riding, and camping. Southern Utah’s moderate climate makes Snow Canyon a prime destination during early spring, fall, and even winter. The colorful canyon is popular with hikers and rock climbers willing to try their skills on the towering sandstone walls.
This strikingly colorful Snow Canyon State Park is 11 miles northwest of St. George. Facilities include a 35-unit campground, modern rest rooms, hot showers, electric hookups, sewage disposal station, a covered group-use pavilion and overflow campground.
