What is there to do?

Bryce Canyon National Park is an incredible natural wonder in Utah! The beautiful pillars of rock coming out of the ground almost look like it's part of a very awesome cave without a roof - or some say it's a "Forest Of Stone".

Whatever you want to call it, this outdoor adventure is just waiting for kids and families to come and enjoy it!

Did you know that the pillars of rock are actually called Hoodoos, and can be found on every continent, but there is something truly magical about Bryce Canyon. It's the perfect outdoor adventure!

You can spend anywhere from a few hours to an entire week and Bryce Canyon National Park, and there will always be something new to do and see.  The park offers something incredibly special for every age.

Did you know that Bryce Canyon has Ranger Guided Activities? This is a great time for kids to ask ALL those questions they want to know - like why are the rocks red, and where did the funny name hoodoo come from? The summer schedule is jam packed, but from Spring to October you can join in fascinating geology talks and rim walks. 

Maybe you want to experience a horseback ride, or take to the telescope and enjoy the night sky at a stargazing evening? If you want to extend your stay, there are two campgrounds where you can stay to really experience the national park! 

Get out of the house and enjoy that amazing Utah nature with Bryce Canyon National Park - it’s an amazing part of the world that has just got to be seen in person!
