Quail Creek State Park is strictly a water park. Events at this park are focused on fishing and boating. We only spent a little bit of time at this park because we don’t have a boat, but the setting is beautiful.
Quail Creek is in Washington County just outside of Hurricane, and only about 15 minutes from St. George. Interestingly, Quail Creek is not nearly big enough to fill the reservoir which bears its name, so an underground pipe carries water from the Virgin River. There are also two dams to the reservoir, which is a bit unique.
Though we found some Junior Ranger booklets online for Quail Creek State Park, their program is not active as of April 2016, and they sent us down the road to Sand Hollow State Park. This makes sense because there is not really a Visitor’s Center of any kind at Quail Creek, just a kiosk to collect money from boaters and anglers much like you find at some of the other water recreation parks.
Quail Creek is a great place to play if you have a boat or want to spend a few minutes on the beach, but don’t bother stopping unless this is your final destination.
There is a $10 day fee at Quail Creek State Park, and camping units are available.
