What people say

"This park is really cool and unlike anywhere else in the US! I recommend coming here on a hot day with a packed lunch and posting out for a few hours near the water. Eat, jump in, and relax for a little bit with friends makes for the perfect afternoon! "
"For the spring and summer, bring a swimsuit and ride the naturally formed slide through the rock. Be warned it will be cold! Even if the lot is full, just park on the side of the road and scramble down to the river!"
"Another local watering hole. Cost money to park just be warned it gets crazy busy in summer and it can be very difficult to get a parking spot so keep that in mind"

Mentioned in these guides

With dramatic landscapes, towering red rock formations, picturesque canyons, and shimmering blue lakes, the American Southwest is a must-visit destination for outdoor enthusiasts and there’s no better way to see it than a road trip! This road trip itinerary takes you through some of the most incredible scenery in the United States, including Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Lake Powell, Monument Valley, and Sedona. Here’s exactly what you can expect from my American Southwest Road Trip guide 👇 This guide is the result of hours upon hours of planning, research, and my in-person lessons-learned over 2 different trips to the region. The guide includes fun features such as an interactive map, directions that connect directly to your phone’s Google or Apple Maps app, and the exact coordinates to some of my favorite hidden gems & hiking trails. (Please note – this guide focuses heavily on hiking if that’s not your thing, it may not be the best guide for you) It lays out instructions to help you plan your perfect trip to this area including: 1. Over 25 outdoor activities (including 19 incredible hikes, the best places to catch sunrise and sunset, slot canyon tours, my favorite kayaking experience I have ever done, secret natural red rock swimming holes, cave hikes with beautiful vistas, and more!) 2. 50+ accommodation suggestions including luxury glamping experiences, upscale airstream rentals, treehouses, cabins with unreal views, tiny home villages, a famous off-the-grid “Kyoob” on a working Navajo sheep ranch, unique AirBnBs, park and private campgrounds for tent or camper van parking, and exactly where I stayed during my own trip! 3. Information and links on how to apply for permits to some of the most famous hikes in the country 4. What airport to fly in and out of, car rental suggestions, and camper van rental sites (if you want to turn this into a camper van road trip!) 5. Hyperlinks to every resource you could need to book your trip directly from the guide 6. Behind the scenes exclusive photos and videos from me Plus it’s mobile friendly when you download the Thatch App for free so you can easily access all of the info right from your phone!

This is a LIVING guide: I will update it as I find more information and discover more places which means you have lifetime access to all updated information as it’s added! 2. I only make guides based on areas I have not only been to but know well! I include both activities that I have done myself as well as those that are on my bucketlist for next time I visit! I will always call out the ones I have not done yet and provide you the exact resources you need to experience them yourself! 3. These guides are completely transparent! You can be sure that all unfiltered opinions I provide are my own 🙃 If I include any sponsored information or affiliate links, I will be sure to call these out directly.
