Canyonlands National Park (About 35 mins drive from KOA)
Canyonlands National Park is the largest and most rugged of all of Utahs parks. The three sections of Canyonlands, Island in the Sky, the Maze, and the Needles, divided by the Green and Colorado rivers, are primitive worlds. They are so vast that, even with repeated exploration, they will never give up all of their secrets.
Dead Horse State Park (35 minutes from KOA)
This park is so named because old-time cowboys, using the point as a natural corral, inadvertently left a band of horses trapped for so long they died of thirst. An almost isolated island-mesa, Dead Horse Point offers a spectacular view of the La Sal Mountains, Canyonlands National Park, and the Colorado River 2,000 feet below.
