Description

Quail Creek Campground straight up rocks. As in, red rocks powerfully tower over the bluest, warmest water in Utah. Yeah, we said it, warmest body of water in the state. You could very well launch your boat in the reservoir, or, fashion your own floatation device and allow yourself the luxury of cooling off comfortably. Since the weather is always mild, you can camp year-round. There are some sweet state and national parks next door, making Quail Creek a peaceful place to retire to after a long day of exploring.

We just left there after camping for 4 days and 3 nights. We were pleasantly surprised by how lovely it was. Make sure you have some form of shade, because even though the patio tables are shaded, the sun still beats down on you. The drinking water tasted lovely, and the local rental place has ice and wood available to purchase. In the event you forget something, Hurricane, Utah is literally a hop, skip, and a jump down the road; and has multiple gas stations and a Walmart. The only negative I will say about this place is the tent pad size. On various sites it states the tent pads are 12x14. Our tent is that size, and I can say after looking at the sites not all of them would fit our tent. Overall excellent experience!

The first night of a 3,500-mile month-long journey was spent at Quail Creek Campground and it was a great way to prepare for the road ahead. I recommend some sort of shade if you don't plan on being on the lake during the day, at least until the sun drops behind the canyon wall. Then the colors of the surrounding buttes and mountains really come to life. The nighttime view of the sky is relatively free of light pollution, so if stargazing is your thing this is a great place to spend the night. Bonus: there's a great store for camping gear in nearby Hurricane, in case you need or forgot something (as is usually the case with me).

The campsites are pretty much in direct sunlight until later in the afternoon, when the sun dips behind the Harrisburg Bench and delivers much-needed shade on summer days.Rent a kayak or paddleboard near the campground and tour the lake. Row to the northernmost part for some shade, but keep in mind: Years of silt have made the lake bottom soft and murky - you may sink up to your ankles, possibly lose a shoe!
