    Sand Hollow is just outside St George UT at the foot of Sand Mountain and surrounded by sage brush desert. The top of Zion National Park can be seen along with Pine Valley Mountain. We stayed at the less developed Sand Pit CG. There is a separate CG with full hookups. Although we dry camped, bathrooms are heated and have flush toilets and showers. Since this park is popular to ATVers, it can be noisey during day light hours.

    We tent camped there 2 years ago. It was not a great experience.
    It was Spring break in Utah and Zion was our intended destination.

    Sand Hallow was not very crowded because it was a bit too cold to go boating.

    We were in the "primitive" camping areas and the ATVs were running ALL night!
    They seemed to try and get as close to our tent as possible.
    This seems like a great place to hang out if you want to ride your 4-wheeler and drink.

    At night the BUGS are really obnoxious. They drove us into our tent. When we got settled
    into the tent it sounded like it was raining from all the bugs trying to get at our lights.

    I'm not sure how the RV sites are but we are not planning on going back any time soon.

    We have been there 3 times. First time was in the primitive area. It was OK except a very odd couple came in just before park closing time of 10:00. They walked around in the dark for a while before setting up camp. There were many open spots farther away but they choose to be right next to us. Second time was last year in the newly opened Sand Pit. Nice to have a developed CG with drive through driveways and flush toilets. Best of all, it had a Host that enforced CG rules. Since we wanted to camp close to home and the scenery is so spectacular, we tried a third time in warmer weather this year. There were many more ATVs and the mufflers are a joke. The weather changed early the next morning. Since the park is located in a big valley, the winds can kick up very high. We left well before the check out time of 2:00 PM. Of note, there is a CG with full hookups closest to the entrance gate and is far away from the ATV section. However, camping fee is $28 daily.
