Bob Grove shares spots that are perfect for avoiding the usual spring break crowds.


1. Sand Hollow Vacation Rentals

Located halfway between Zion National Park and St. George, Sand Hollow Vacation Rentals offer large vacation homes, some of which can sleep up to 45 people.

“It’s close to everything there is to do in the Washington County, Greater Zion area,” Bob said.

If you love St. George, you’ll love Sand Hollow equally as much.

2. Ruby’s Inn at Bryce Canyon National Park

Ruby’s Inn has been a favorite for over a hundred years. It’s a mile from the entrance to Bryce Canyon and has plenty of rooms, a big restaurant, and several places to eat.

“It’s basically a destination in itself, but it’s really close to the park and it’s very close to other places,” Bob said.

It’s close to Red Canyon, Kodachrome Basin State Park, and Widtsoe Ghost Town, making it a great central location.

3. Slot Canyons Inn

Just outside of Escalante, Slot Canyons Inn has eight rooms, two of which are family suites.

They even have a beautifully restored cabin. “Which, by the way,” Bob added, “was was owned by Amanda Blake from Gunsmoke Kitty.”

Slot Canyons Inn is a beautiful adobe-style bed and breakfast.

4. Muddy Creek Mining Company

Located in Hanksville, Utah, Muddy Creek Mining Company offers cabins that are close to the junctions of highways 95 and 24.

“These are cabins fairly new, and there’s so much to see and do in the Hanksville area in every direction,” Bob said.

Muddy Creek Mining Company is close to places like Goblin Valley, the Caneville Desert, Factory Butte, Swingarm City, Mars, Robbers Roost, and Burr Point.

“I can go on and on, but it’s centrally located to all those places. It’s an amazing place,” Bob recommended.

It’s a great place to set up a home base and just go out on day trips.

“These are really nice cabins with kitchenettes in them. You can unpack and stay there for a few days and and then just go out on day trips,” Bob said.

5. Bluff Dwellings

Bluff Dwellings is a resort and spa located in San Juan County in the town of Bluff. The dwellings were designed to resemble ancestral Puebloan Ruins and blend in with their surroundings. They also operate wild expeditions, offering hiking, canyoneering, river rafting on the San Juan River, and Hummer excursions.

“It’s close to Monument Valley, Goosenecks State Park, the Moki Dugway, Natural Bridges. Again, it’s all right there,” Bob said.
