Escalante Petrified Forest State Park

710 N. Reservoir Road
Escalante, UT 84726

435-826-4466

Camp along the shores of Wide Hollow Reservoir, or rent a canoe, kayak or paddle board on its clear waters. Hike along park nature trails through a petrified forest, but remember to take only photographs. Some say the petrified wood is haunted and removing a piece brings the taker nothing but bad luck.
