9 Lesser-Known State Parks In Utah That Will Absolutely Amaze You

You’ll find gorgeous natural beauty in every corner of the Beehive State, but some spots get much more attention that others. Zion National Park is one of the most-visited parks in the country, and even some of our state parks like Dead Horse Point State Park draws more than 560,000 visitors every year.

Some of our state parks are much lesser-known, and draw way fewer crowds. In fact, the nine fewest-visited parks only saw between 1,205 and 22,446 visitors between July 2016 and June 2017. These underrated parks might not be as famous as some, but they’re all well worth a visit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
