Welcome to Escalante Petrified Forest State Park!

Camp along the shores of Wide Hollow Reservoir, swim or rent a kayak or paddleboard to play and explore 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!

Make sure you click the “More Conditions Information” button to the right for more about the park.

Here are some videos of the campground and up on top of the Petrified Forest Trail.
