April has been beautiful in Kanab, Utah. The warm afternoons are great for hiking, ATV and mountain bike rides, and exploring the red rock around Kanab. The cool evenings are ideal for sitting by the fire pit, soaking in the hot tub, or star gazing. There are endless great outdoor recreation opportunities around Kanab in April and May and the weather is about perfect for enjoying the outdoors. Here are a few of our favorite outdoor activities that we love around Kanab. 

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is one of our favorites for a variety of reasons. It is easy for families to get to.  The sand dunes are located just 20 minutes from Kanab and are just off the paved road, so families can drive right up and be at the sand dunes without hiking for a long time or being in the car for hours.  They are great for families with small children since children of all ages can enjoy playing in the sand. They are also great for families with older children.  There are sand boards and sand sleds for rent that older children and adults will enjoy. Kanab also has a few businesses that rent ATVs and side by sides to drive around on the sand dunes and explore. 

Toadstools is another great option for families.  It is only about 30 minutes south of Kanab and it is just off the side of the highway. Children of all ages love to climb around in the toadstool formation and explore the hidden passageways and amazing rock formations. 

Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks are both about an hour north of Kanab. They are a great option for stopping on your way to Kanab or your way home and spending half a day seeing the spectacular views and rock formations.  These two national parks are some of the most iconic and famous red rock canyons and formations in the world and are well worth a stop when you are traveling from northern Utah to Kanab. 

The north rim of the Grand Canyon is just over an hour south of Kanab and offers some of the best views of the spectacular Grand Canyon. It is well worth a day trip down to the Grand Canyon while you are in Kanab to experience the size and beauty of this spectacular canyon.

Kanab has some of the most iconic and well-known red rock canyons and rock formations in the world.  We hope to see you and your family soon at Grand Plateau Lodge and RV Resort for some southern Utah outdoor recreation!
