Hidden Gems in Utah

July 09, 2021

What are some of the best little-known parks in Utah?

In a place with as many state and national parks as Utah, it goes without saying that some are more popular than others. We’ve got five national parks and 43 state parks, so there’s a lot to explore! This list of nine state parks is made up of plenty of hidden gems in Utah. They may not get as many visitors as some of the more popular parks, like Dead Horse Point State Park, but they are just as beautiful and definitely worth a visit, especially if you don’t like crowds.

Are there any hidden hot springs in Utah?

Mystic Hot Springs (formerly known as Monroe Hot Springs) is a real gem that is occasionally overlooked. There’s so many refreshing natural pools in Utah. Check out this list for nine more suggestions.

Are there any more hidden gems in Utah?

Here’s a great list to get you started. We are particularly fond of Home of Truth: who doesn’t love a great ghost town? And of course, we can’t not mention Paria Canyon. The beautiful watercolor hues of the mountains are like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
