Kodachrome Basin State Park Reviews
A beautiful, uncrowded spot, the park has delightful walks and scenic spots. For us, though, the highlight was the campsite. Spacious, shaded; the cleanest showers and restrooms that we've come across... more »
A lovely park, really quiet and out of the way. You have to walk round a short trail to see anything so there are no tour buses! Has a campsite and parking for RVs if that’s your thing. There are vari... more »
I would give this place 10 Stars if I could. It is as awesome a park as you can imagine. It got its name from a National Geographic photographic picture story from the 1920s or so. The photographers were so blown away by the geologic features they decided that Kodachrome Basin was the proper name for this place. We came for a couple of days there are well we toured around the other national parks in the vicinity and very much enjoyed it.
This is a very nice and quiet (out-of-the-way) place with real natural beauty. It's about 30 minutes away from Tropic Utah and is a good alternative to Bryce Canyon. I did a half-day visit during the afternoon hours and the colors of this place are quite spectacular. Take the time to hike and photograph the surroundings. There is no shortage of good views here. You will like the peace and quiet this place has to offer as there are so few people around. Most of them are serious campers and not tourists. The park offers a small laundry facility with clean restrooms for those who need it. I wish I had more time to explore this lovely place. Do some research on why this place is named the way it is. It will all make sense when you see it in person. Totally worth the 8 dollars I paid to visit this place and surely a place to revisit someday.
