Sand Hollow State Park Review
Sand Hollow State Park is one of several State parks located in the Southern Utah area. This Sand Hollow State Park review offers information on several outdoor activities available at Sand Hollow including hiking, camping, boating, picnics, sand dunes, and more.
Before the incredible reservoir was made, Sand Hollow was a popular spot for those that love the sand dunes. Still now, people come from all over to ride 4 wheelers, dirt bikes and dune buggies. Children love playing in the soft sand. Now, with the reservoir added there is more than ever to enjoy.
Sand Hollow State Park is located between Hurricane and St. George, Utah. The beaches have camp sites and picnic areas nearby. The scenery here is unparalleled. With red cliffs, majestic mountains, lava rock and more it is a feast for the eyes.
For the lover of fishing there are plenty of fish to be caught. The most popular fish are the blue gill and the bass. You can fish from many spots on the waters edge as well as from your boat. The docks make getting your boat in and out of the water exceptionally easy.
To camp right on the beach with no amenities on site is just $15 per night. For camping in the main campground with hookups and services it is just $25 (some campgrounds cost more or less) per night. For those just visiting for the day that may want to picnic or use their watercraft there is a $10 day use fee. Keep in mind that the park gates are open between 6 am to 10 pm. They are closed from 10 pm to 6 am so please make sure you plan accordingly. Annual passes are
