Multiple Utah State Parks participate in the Jr. Ranger Program.

See below for a full list of participating parks. Many of them allow FREE printable downloads of their Jr. Ranger booklets, while others can be purchased at visitor centers for a small fee.

This page is periodically updated as programs become available.


Antelope Island State Park

Hike, mountain bike or horseback ride the park’s backcountry trails for spectacular views of lake and island scenery; spend a star-filled night in one of several primitive campsites; stroll along sandy beaches and take a dip in the lake’s salty waters or step back in time with a visit to the Historic Fielding Garr Ranch. Antelope Island is home to free-ranging bison, mule deer, bighorn sheep, pronghorn (antelope), and many other desert animals.

East Canyon State Park

Tucked away in the mountains of northeastern Utah, East Canyon Reservoir is a popular destination for boating, fishing, and camping, but also holds a bit of history. Explore the nearby Mormon Pioneer Trail, the route taken by Mormons traveling more than 1,300 miles from Illinois to Utah.

You can pick up your Free East Canyon Jr. Ranger booklet at the park entrance station.


Fred Hayes State Park at Starvation

The sprawling waters of Starvation Reservoir offer great fishing and boating. Find a secluded campsite at one of four primitive and two developed campgrounds. Bring your off-highway vehicle and ride on nearby trails, try our 3D archery course, walk our slacklines, or go geocaching.

You can pick up your Free Jr. Ranger Booklet at the park visitor center or download and print one below.
