If you’re looking for a great winter getaway, Southern Utah is a great option. This time of year St. George/Hurricane has sunny days in the 50s! It’s a lovely escape to red rock, national parks, and lots of outdoor recreation.

If you’re winter camping in Southern Utah consider staying at Sand Hollow State Park near Hurricane.  The park has paved campsites with power, water, and even sewer provided. Public free showers are available as well and the views from here are spectacular for sunsets!

Where to camp & What to do

Many ATVers flock here for the fun to be had nearby.  There’s also a lake and plenty of options for biking, hiking, and golfing within a half hour or less.  Those looking to mark National Parks off their lists can easily hop over to Zion National Park, or make a side trip to Bryce Canyon or Cedar Breaks too.

Winter Camping Tips

When it comes to winter camping in southern Utah, or anywhere else for that matter, here are some things to keep in mind.  You may want to “dry camp” and not use your sink or toilet, if possible. This makes winter camping easier because you don’t have to re-winterize when you get home. Dry camping is much easier if you have a small portable cassette toilet to use at night.  A water cooler with a spout for use inside helps too.

Enjoy the sun as long as you can when you’re winter camping, and then have games or campfire fun planned for after dark. Fun family games can include Boggle, Old Maid, or Uno.  For adults, Backgammon and Scrabble are great too.

The cell service at Sand Hollow is excellent so you can also plan to watch those playoff football games while you’re camping!
