Ride the Canyon on the Fantastic bike trail, a 50 mile round trip from Richfield. Wonderful scenery terminating at Big Rock Candy Mountain. Great little Campground and Riverrafting is available. Gotta have pizza in nearby Marysvale!

Burl Ives sang about the Big Rock Candy Mountain, and even though there are no Lemonade Springs, there IS a Big Rock Candy Mountain Resort and Café just outside Marysvale, Utah, on state highway 89. We stopped there yesterday for breakfast on their opening weekend. The food was very good and the prices are about the best in the area.... More

I submitted this already. it wasn't fully opened but advertised that it was. I think there is a lot to do after end of May, but until then, I'd skip this. Inn rooms are being remodeled. the ones not finished smell very moldy. our shower wasn't installed right and would turn to hot water so we ended up taking sponge... More

Great place in the heart of the mountains. RV park was really nice, right next to the river. Ziplines and white water rafting were a really fun experience. Great bike trail. Would've done more if we had time. We really wanted to do the ATV trail which sounded really fun. Went two different times in the span of 2 weeks... More

We stopped in the parking lot of the motel to take some pictures. When my husband got out to take the picture he saw that we had blown out one of the tires on our extended stay 35 trailer. Because of technical difficulties we stayed at the RV park that night. (Thankfully they had an opening because it was off-season).... More

We recently stayed here for a family reunion. we had family in the RV park, the motel rooms and also the cabins. The RV park is well kept and overall a very decent place to stay. The motel rooms need updated, but for the area, there are no other options. The cabin we had was the larger one and it... More

We loved the Candy Mountain Express paved bike path. It was a very nice and beautiful ride for the entire family. We haven't stayed at the resort itself to rate it.

My sisters and I took our families for a quick family get away. We had boys and girls ranging from 10 to 15. They had a great time. We all had a great time. The staff was wonderful and warm. The ziplines and adventure courses are a good level for kids. They are somewhat challenging but not so much that... More

6 of us rafted the river and there were 6 smiles and great memories made. Our guide Zack was very friendly, informative and fun. This was a great first time experience for all of us.
