Water Sports

The St. George Area is the place to be for outdoor water adventures! While tubing or hiking through the Virgin River and various waterfall hikes draw thousands of visitors here every year, many people don’t realize that we are also a great location for boating! Washington County is home to two beautiful lakes that both feature incredible red rock scenery, warm water, and plenty of sunshine. Our preferred partner, Mad Moose, also features water rentals at Quail Creek State Park.

Quail Creek State Park

Quail Creek State Park (600-acre reservoir) is also located in Hurricane, about 15-20 minutes from St. George. Quail Creek has one boat ramp and smaller and rockier beach areas, but it can be less crowded than Sand Hollow. Mad Moose Rentals offers rentals for surf, ski, and wakeboard boats, jet skis, paddleboards, and kayaks.

Lake Powell & Lake Mead

Sand Hollow and Quail Creek State Parks are a bit too small for large speed boats and houseboats, but Lake Powell (Wahweap and Antelope Point marinas are about two hours east) and Lake Mead (about 2 hours southwest) are very large lakes that can make for a great day trip while staying in St. George!
