Winter in Kanab is a beautiful time of year. The white snow on the red sandstone creates some gorgeous scenery and the number of people around is much less than the summertime. The fewer number of people creates quiet and peaceful national and state parks where you often feel like you have the place just for your family. The quiet parks along with a private lodge creates the ultimate family vacation experience.
We often have guests of Grand Plateau Lodge tell us at the conclusion of their stay that it was so wonderful to have their family all together in one location to relax and play in privacy and to have the place to themselves. They also comment in the winter how the trails and hikes were so quiet and peaceful, and the scenery was so beautiful.
Kanab family vacations are getting more popular. The massive number of national and state parks, along with the amazing slot canyons and sand dunes makes the Kanab area one of the ultimate outdoor playgrounds in Utah.
