Nine Mile Canyon and San Rafeal

Canyon Country is a large section in Central Utah that is generally passed over by visitors. The ski resorts draw people to the northern section of the state, and the national parks attract tourists to Southern Utah, but the central region is often forgotten. This is unfortunate, as there are some cool things to do and see there. So, if you want to get off the beaten path a little, visit Canyon Country. […]

Spring Break In Southern Utah

Spring has arrived in Southern Utah! As much as we love the other seasons, we at the Lodge at Red River Ranch especially love springtime. The weather is pleasant and hiking possibilities are virtually unlimited. The birds have returned and the desert flowers are about to bloom. And of course, schools across the nation are out for spring break. We think spending a week in Southern Utah is the perfect spring break vacation. […]

A Brief History of the NPS in Utah

Utah is lucky to have so many national parks. In addition to the obvious conservation benefits, these parks provide recreation and additional income for many people. The history of the National Park Service – which today oversees nearly 450 natural, historical, recreational, and cultural areas – is quite fascinating. We at the Lodge at Red River Ranch thought we’d share a few of the highlights, especially about the formation of Utah’s National Parks. […]

A Goblin Valley Weekend

Utah is undoubtedly famous for its national parks. (After all, we do have the third highest consecration of national parks in the United States, after California and Alaska.) But we at the Lodge at Red River Ranch love our state parks as well. If you’re in town, you might want to check a few of them out. One of our favorites is Goblin Valley. […]

Dead Horse

Utah has a plethora of state parks. And one of the best – and least visited – is Dead Horse State Park. This park offers a fantastic view of the high desert near Moab, of the Colorado River, and of Canyonlands National Park. Dead Horse State Park has impressive canyon walls that rise 2,000 feet from the canyon floor. We at the Lodge at Red River Ranch recommend that you check out Dead Horse State Park the next time you get the chance. […]
