Sand Hollow State Park sits about 15 minutes north of St. George and about 30 minutes south of Zion National Park. This is the local favorite for water sports, off roading and fishing. The lake itself is only about 1300 acres but there’s plenty of room on crowded days for skiing, wake boarding and jet-skis. The first thing you’ll notice is the red sand beaches. The beach extends into the lake providing a sand bar where you can park your boat and have lunch. This beach is also part of the off-road park, so you can watch UTV’s tear it up while you sit in the water. It’s truly a one of a kind landscape. Opposite of the beach is red rock sandstones that hug the shoreline giving fishers and rock jumpers plenty of water holes. Kids take over the “jump spot” all summer long. There is also scuba diving in this part of the lake. This is must do for all visitors.
