If parks like Bryce Canyon are too overwhelming for you, give this place a try. There's a reason for it to be called Kodachrome, the scenery is beautiful. Also, just beyond the park is Grosvenor Arch, named for the editor of National Geographic. It tells...More

This is great state park near Cannonville, and about 40 minutes from Bryce. Very uncrowded, with excellent day hiking.

We stopped here on a whim. We were glad we did. The park was not busy at all and we were able to view the Shakespeare Arch, Sand Pipes and other formations with very little walking. The view from the trail to the Arch was...More

Not at all crowded. We overnighted here before going on to Zion. Great night sky, very nice bathroom facilities (with showers!). We also did the 2 hour horse riding tour in the morning, HIGHLY recommended!

We spent a morning here before continuing to Bryce Canyon. The scenery was great and we loved the solitude and lack of crowds. We walked the Shakespeare Arch trail, which was a great experience.

It cost eight dollars to get in. There are some really neat rock formations there. The only thing we did not like was that a number of the rock formations were only accessible through an unpaved road that was very slow to go down, for...More

What a magnificent place! Beautiful, quiet, and dark. If you want to experience the stars with no internet (or ecell service) this is your place. We had stayed here as a base camp for Bryce but it is worth a trip unto itself. Pros: nice...More

Highly enjoyed this trail that was at times challenging to follow. We hiked at a time when there were no other visitors and the isolation added to the adventure. We saw jackrabbits and salamanders and had fun climbing the boulders at the top.

My family didn't stay at Kodachrome. We drove out to see Grosvenor's Arch, which is fairly close to Kodachrome. I was very dissapointed in the experience. We wanted to see as much as we could on this trip. Having seen several arches before at other...More

You can see several different pipes from your car. We drove the roads in the park and took pictures. That day it was very hot, so we barely even got out.

I would have to recommend Bryce if you only have time for one of the two parks. The scenery at Bryce is of a unique nature and on a scale that is hard to match. Bryce is also well suited to driving through in that there is... More

Hi, I stayed one night last April. It is a camp - not a motel. Tents and RV's. Electric outlet in public facilities only. Scenery pays for everything.
