Located just 23 miles northeast of St George, Utah, Toquerville is a small town with about 1,600 residents.
Settled in the late 1800s, Toquerville was named after an early Paiute Chief. The Paiutes, a group of Native Americans, inhabited the area along with the rest of Washington County and some surrounding areas for centuries before settlers and Pioneers created small towns and cities.
Toquerville is found along Interstate 15. Many travelers might find their way through Toquerville on their way to visit other small towns in the area like Leeds, Hurricane, and La Verkin as well as St. George.
Toquerville is also accessible for those travelers heading north to Zion National Park. Toquerville is located about 23 miles away from Zion.
