WillowWind RV Park was a great place to stay while exploring Zion National Park and other parts of southern Utah. The park is clean with friendly staff, shaded sites, exercise room and nice facilities. The best aspect of the park is its in-town location. RV parks tend to be right off interstate, but WillowWind RV Park is located in the town of Hurricane, Utah so you can walk to the local grocery store and nearby restaurants. The monthly rate was very affordable considering how well kept the park is.

Things to Do Nearby
Visit Zion National Park
Its only about a half hour drive from the RV park to Zion, but be sure to arrive at or before the time the first shuttle departs to avoid waiting in long lines. Zion National Park has many famous hikes, but the Narrows is probably the most unique experience. The hike runs directly through the Virgin River, so you are guaranteed to get wet. However, it is definitely worth the wet shoes for the incredible views of soaring canyon walls. The trail is only open when water levels are low enough, so check the national park website before planning your hike.
Hike the Scout Cave Trail
Located in Snow Canyon State Park, the Scout Cave Trail is a great moderate hike. The trail passes over lava flow fields, stream beds, and Navajo Sandstone and ends at a shadow cave (pictured below), which is a great place to cool off after hiking in the sun. The 3.5 mile round-trip hike has some elevation change and full sun exposure, but is not particularly difficult. Dogs are also allowed on this trail.
Play at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park
The main features of this state park are exactly what the name says, pink sand dunes. Visitors can enjoy exploring the dunes on foot or on ATVs. The dunes are easily accessible from the parking area, so this state park is great for both kids and dogs. Just avoid visiting in the middle of the day during the warmer months as the sand can become quite hot.
