Economic Benefits Of State Parks

Utah’s state parks are more than great places to visit. State parks and museum provide tremendous economic benefits to our state and local communities through increased revenue and tourism by:

  • Generating $9.85 in local economic impact for every $1 of general fund appropriation
  • Generating $67 million in state economic benefit through day-use, camping and golf
  • Paying $11.2 million to individual counties in 2010 property tax for off-highway vehicles and boats
  • Collecting and paying more than $1 million in state and local taxes to counties and communities
