So after a few hours of slicing and dicing the dunes...it was time to just get cooled off with a swim in the lake...nothing but good times...
Fun to see the reservoir in the desert. Although not huge, it was interesting to explore. Didn't have time to try fishing, but will next time. Nice facilities with paddle board and kayak rentals.
My wife and I moved to Hurricane seven years ago and Quail Creek State Park is our favorite destination. We hike there, kayak, and we fish there as well. The trout are plump and full of fight and we have caught and released many. You get early shade in the evenings and the place is nice and clean.

We stopped here to camp for two nights to relax and catch our breaths after traveling for a few weeks in a motorhome through Colorado and Utah. There is just one site with water and electric and we were fortunate to get that site as it was 100+ degrees and my kids were hoping for air conditioning. The reservoir and... 更多
Went here for some fantastic photo opportunities. Being from Ohio, I was awe struck by the beauty of the Mesa, and then was flabbergasted by the fact there was a lake here, in the desert! Beautiful place to wander around, swim, or boat.
