Red Canyon Dixie Forest, Utah - We love visiting this area of our beautiful country.  This time we stayed in Red Canyon Campground, which is located roughly 9 miles from main entrance to Bryce Canyon State Park. Bryce Canyon has some of the most amazing natural formations we have ever seen amongst our travels and made a stop as part of our honeymoon road trip. We enjoyed talking with the camp hosts who were extremely friendly and informative.

There are approximately 2 million acres in what the locals lovingly refer to as "Dixie" (Dixie National Forest) so there is not a lack of things to do in the area.  If hiking through the wilderness isn't your thing there's also a 5 mile paved biking/walking trail. This leads you to numerous hiking trails, by red rock formations and "tunnels". Well, they aren't quite tunnels but more like holes in the rocks that you can drive through. It can be a little unnerving in a large vehicle like a motorhome, but don't worry, you have plenty of room to make it through. Keep your camera close by as deer & other sorts of wildlife are plentiful, as well as some nice opportunities for some close up pictures with the rock formations. Also nearby is Zion National Park that boasts whole other kind of fascinating rock scenery.
