Easter weekend: More visitors, traffic delays, parking impacts at Snow Canyon

ST. GEORGE — Easter weekend is the busiest weekend 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.

The peak visitation hours are expected between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. with nonpeak times being 6-10:30 a.m. and 4-10 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 up to an hour wait.

Park visitors are encouraged to come during nonpeak hours in the mornings and late afternoon, and to consider carpooling or even visiting on alternative dates.

Easter services will be held at 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. at the nearby Tuacahn Amphitheatre Sunday, something park visitors may want to combine with their visit to the canyon. Read more here: Easter services at Tuacahn: ‘He is the God of the living’
