Welcome to Escalante Petrified Forest State Park
Camp along the shores of Wide Hollow Reservoir, or rent a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard on its clear waters. Hike along park nature trails through a petrified forest, but remember to take only photographs. Some say the petrified wood is haunted and removing a piece brings the taker nothing but bad luck. Watch this and decide for yourself!
Here are some videos of the campground and up on top of the Petrified Forest Trail.
