St George Area Boating

The St George area offers several great boating waters, and that may surprise some who know it is located in a very dry desert environment.

Three area state parks include reservoirs that are popular for boating and other water sports. They are Sand Hollow, Quail Lake and Gunlock. All offer relatively warm water and Sand Hollow has very nice sandy beaches.

Ivins Reservoir, located near Gunlock, is small but still draws boaters and water skiers.

Lake Powell is only about 150 miles from St George, and it rates among the top waters in the US for boating, houseboating, water sports and fishing.

Pine Valley Reservoir, a small water in a beautiful forest in the Pine Valley Mountains, is a popular place for canoeing and fishing.
