  • We drove by Gunlock reservoir without planning to go there. It's nice to look off to the left (as you approach coming from St. George) and look at the water in the middle of the desert. Since we were....  more »
  • Absolutely a beautiful hidden treasure. It's only a quick day trip from Vegas. The park has a 10 dollar fee that you pay on the honor system. There's rough camping. There are two spots you can park. We made the mistake of hitting the parking spot below the falls. From there it's very steep sandy paths to the falls. Once up there we saw that there was a straight shot above the falls. Above the falls is the official park with a simple rest area, camping and picnic spots and places to launch your water crafts. There is a large lake and above the falls is a beautiful shallow section of water that's clear that families can play in. It's definitely a busy park but you can find places for pictures and look like you're there alone. Being in the desert this place is just a gorgeous treasure and when you come around the corner and see the falls it just takes your breath away. Definitely on my must return list for a day of kayaking and swimming.
  • Very nice place. You can camp on the beach. You can bring your own boats and other water vehicles. If you don't have you can rent. This is a dry camp so bring your own water and plenty of it. Several trails for hiking.
