We stopped here on our way to Bryce, and are happy we did. So serene and lovely. Very few people here- great place to hike short or long.

Kodachrome Basin State Park is a photographer's paradise -- great views without the hassle of avoiding tour groups. Definitely worth the detour from Highway 12.

What a gem so close to Bryce. I would not miss it. Park employees were very helpful, nice hiking and no crowds. We spent about 5 hours here hiking all but one trail. Really enjoyed the tranquility.

This beautiful, uncrowded park is a pleasant change from the busy national parks. Instead of merely looking at beautiful landscapes from afar, Kodachrome finds you clambering through them. There were so few people on the trail, at times it was difficult to find our way....More

This was our second visit to the park, after a gap of 8 years. The park has a selection of trails for all abilities. The scenery is spectacular and the views from Angels's Palace are fantastic. A great park!

Blue sky and fantastic red formations... a photographers delight. Far less crowds than Bryce & Zion. Would be a fun place to camp

This park is well-managed and maintained and offers amenities, such as clean hot showers and a laundry, even if you stay in the more primitive Bryceview Campground, as we did, Our site was spacious, quiet and fairly private, with sweeping views. Vault toilets (clean) and...More

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.

Hi, I have no idea, we were there only for a few hours, but did not see any dogs. This is a Utah State Park, maybe their website has that info. Leo
