SNOW CANYON STATE PARK – Easter weekend is one of the busiest weekends of the year at Snow Canyon State Park, with most visitors arriving Saturday. Preparations are being made to implement traffic control at both park entrances to ensure visitor and resource safety.

Peak visitation times are between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. A temporary entrance freeze will be put in place when designated parking areas and pullouts are full. Visitors should be prepared for long entrance lines, with the possibility of delays up to an hour.

Visitors are strongly encouraged to arrive at non-peak times, from 6-10:30 a.m. or 4-10 p.m. Visitors should also consider carpooling or visiting on alternate dates.

For more information, visit stateparks.utah.gov or call 435-628-2255.

    This is why I love living here. I always have the option of visiting Snow Canyon, Zion, etc on an “alternate date”, as the article suggests! Thanks for the heads up…
