Kodachrome Basin State Park for 5 nights. This Utah SP is located about 23 miles east and south of the entrance to Bryce Canyon NP. If you can find Cannonville on the map, then it's about 9 miles south of there. This stay was way too short and proved to be a great find. There are two campgrounds in the park. The first named Bryce View is small and has primitive camping sites. Some can be reserved. We stayed in the larger campground named Basin Campground. This campground has 13 FHU reserveable sites. The sites are long and there is plenty of room between each site.
We originally had intended to hike some of the trails in the park (there are 5) and head over to Bryce NP. Five nights is not enough time, however, so we saved Bryce NP for another trip and concentrated on the trails inside the park. (Just an FYI: There is NO cell service inside the park). This worked out well for us as it was nice to get away from the internet for awhile.
The longest trail we hiked during our stay was named Panorama Trail. You had a choice of either a 3 or 6-mile hike. We took the 3 mile loop, but with the side excursions it wound up being about 4.3 miles total.
This concludes our time in Kodachrome Basin State Park. If ever in the area, we would highly recommend a visit to this somewhat secluded location. You can really get away from it all! That's a good thing every now and then!
Stay tuned for our next blog. A change in our summer plans! (Just a teaser to get you to look).
As always, thanks for stopping by to take a look!
