We visited just before Christmas and so had the entire park to ourselves. We explored several trails and found the monoliths quite amazing and the area very photogenic. It's worth the drive there.

We only had time for a quick stop whilst enroute to Monument Valley. Could certainly spend more time exploring this area.

My husband and I went on a road trip to southern Utah and we stopped at Kodachrome. We had visited Zion National Park and we thought the Kodachrome was a bit of a disappointment. It was nice, there were campsites and restrooms scattered around the...More

I did all the trails, and the best part? Nearly empty. The quiet was incredible, the phallic pipes whimsical, the terrain enchanting. The best part of the park is the well cared-for campground with noise rules that are actually followed. That makes a big difference...More

We had an extra day in the Bryce Canyon area. What to do? We decided on Kodachrome Basin State Park. It's a little ways out of town, but an interesting drive. There were only a few other cars there. The entry fee is $8 but...More

This park has been on our list a long time and we finally got there today. Unfortunately we didn’t have as much time as we would like so we’re probably coming back next year. It reminds me of Bryce Canyon but different and really nice....More

We stopped here on our way to Bryce, and are happy we did. So serene and lovely. Very few people here- great place to hike short or long.

Kodachrome Basin State Park is a photographer's paradise -- great views without the hassle of avoiding tour groups. Definitely worth the detour from Highway 12.

What a gem so close to Bryce. I would not miss it. Park employees were very helpful, nice hiking and no crowds. We spent about 5 hours here hiking all but one trail. Really enjoyed the tranquility.

This beautiful, uncrowded park is a pleasant change from the busy national parks. Instead of merely looking at beautiful landscapes from afar, Kodachrome finds you clambering through them. There were so few people on the trail, at times it was difficult to find our way....More

I would have to recommend Bryce if you only have time for one of the two parks. The scenery at Bryce is of a unique nature and on a scale that is hard to match. Bryce is also well suited to driving through in that there is... More

Hi, I stayed one night last April. It is a camp - not a motel. Tents and RV's. Electric outlet in public facilities only. Scenery pays for everything.

Hi, I have no idea, we were there only for a few hours, but did not see any dogs. This is a Utah State Park, maybe their website has that info. Leo
