Red Cliffs and Quail Creek Reservoir state parks are a popular combined trip. Located 39 miles from Cedar City and only 3 miles from each other. These parks offer the best of both red rock and water activities. The climate here differs considerably from that of Cedar City. With average temperatures typically 10 degrees higher. Red Cliffs is an amazing concentration of red and orange color hills and canyons that invite the adventurous to explore. The main canyon hike leads along Quail Creek to pools trapped by the rock formations. Rock climbing and repelling opportunities abound in the park. For those who prefer more leisurely activity, picnic tables and fire pits are available for a small fee. It's a great place for overnight camping as well.

Approximately 3 miles downstream and across I-15, Quail Creek empties into Quail Creek Reservoir; strikingly blue and contrast in the surrounding landscape. Here you can picnic, swim, tan and participate in various water sports. Restrooms, pavilions and fine beaches are available these areas. The quickest route is to take I-15 south to leeds, exit 23. Then follow the main street south through town until you see signs to the parks.
