Red Cliffs

What To See And Do: Red Cliffs is a charming year-round camping area, but particularly attractive in the Fall and Spring of the year when the cold settles in the north. There are 10 overnight camping sites, and a picnic area next to the creek. Water, picnic tables, and vault toilets are available. Overnight camping is $8.00/day, day-use $2.00/vehicle. Picnic and camping supplies are available at Harrisburg, one mile to the east.

Be sure to visit the ruins located nearby. Maps may be obtained from the BLM St. George Field Office.

Visit the Native American interpretive site near the campground. Nearby Attractions include Silver Reef Historic Area with its restored buildings. Walk the trail to the Silver Reef lookout. Silver Reef is the only known place in the United States where commercial deposits of silver ore are found in a sandstone formation.

Location: Just off I-15, 15 miles north of St.George, Utah, near Quail Lake.

How to Get There: Take southbound Exit 23 off I-15 to the town of Leeds. Drive south through the town until you get to a sign that says Harrisburg and Red Cliffs Recreation Site. Northbound travelers take Exit 22, turn right and follow the road south approximately 2 miles to a sign that points to a road under the freeway (limited access 11' x 11'), 1 mile to the campground.
