Here in the Zion Area the temperature can get quite extreme during the summer months. That doesn't keep travelers away from Zion National Park. In the late of August and early September the temperatures are exceeding 100 degrees. Duck Creek offers a great base camp for those of us who like to beat the heat while still seeing the sites we want to see. Only an hour away from Zion and Bryce, Duck Creek offers a perfect mountain setting for those looking to be close to the National Parks we are famous for. Not only this, Duck creek is unique features of its own to make it a destination worth traveling to. The main attractions are hiking, off-roading, great trout fishing in streams, and ponds. Don't have your own off road vehicle? No problem. Just a few minutes away from our campground you are able to rent and variety of off road vehicles to suit your needs. For fishing, we aren't too far from Panguitch Lake with offers first class trout fishing with boat rentals as well as great on-shore fishing. Want to get out and use your legs instead? Brian head is less than an hour away where you will find a ski resort that caters to mountain bikers during the summer. On top of all of this you have world class views overlooking Zion and Cedar breaks near the campground as well. There is so much to do and little time to do it as summer and fall months will be closing soon so we encourage you to book now before the snow shuts us down for the winter season!
January is perfect time of the year to get out in nature and look for deer antlers. Around Zion many big bucks are starching at trees and are getting ready to shed their antlers in preparation for the upcoming season. Most places North of Zion are a perfect place to start looking. Coral Pink Sand Dunes is a perfect area to bring the 4x4 vehicles, bring the family and start looking! There is so much area to cover there and it is covered with big deer just north of Zion and right next to the Paunsaugunt, where the really big dear live! It's cold and the weather is volatile so when you come out here be prepared for all types of weather!

Southern Utah is becoming an exceedingly popular destination for casual travelers and enthusiasts alike. We have seen massive growth in the recreational areas near us and we want to share some tips for you to beat the crowds this Labor Day or any other crowded weekend. Zion National Park and Springdale become excessively busy on holiday weekends. You can expect large crowds showing up early, making lines and parking a headache. If you are looking to skip the lines and cool down in the process, Southern Zion is a great alternative. Turning left from SR-9 in Virgin onto Kolob Terrace Rd. will put you on a path towards Kolob Reservoir. If you take this road to the reservoir, you climb a couple thousand feet in elevation bringing you to much cooler temperatures, which can be a huge relief during the summer. Along this route you will find stunning sites, significantly less traffic, hiking trails, and cooler weather making it a perfect alternative to the main part of the park.
