We brought a picnic lunch on a still-cool May morning and other than a tour group of college kids and a few other picknickers, we pretty much had the state park to ourselves. We checked out some of the pull-offs and viewpoints, did the short walk to view the Pioneer names and had a nice lunch.

If you're in Southwestern Utah to see The Big Five, put this state park on your itinerary. Maybe not in the heat of the summer but any other time of year it's worth a stop!
You can visit the Snow Canyon State Park web site here.It is located a few miles outside of St. George, Utah which is one hour and 50 minutes driving time from Las Vegas, Nevada.
