With its warm, blue waters and red sandstone landscape, Sand Hollow State Park is also one of its most popular. In addition to riding OHVs, one can boat, fish, and dive at Sand Hollow Reservoir, then RV or tent camp in a campground or the beach.

The sprawling 20,000-acre park, which rests mostly on USDI Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land, rivals Utah’s two largest state parks – Wasatch Mountain and Antelope Island. Sand Hollow already one of the most visited destinations in the Utah State Park system, with recreation opportunities for nearly every user from boaters to bikers, and OHV riders to equestrians.

A favorite destination for local off-highway vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts, Sand Mountain provides 15,000 acres of perfectly sculpted dunes. The red sand is an incredible backdrop for Sand Hollow reservoir. At nearly twice the size of nearby Quail Creek Reservoir, Sand Hollow offers boating and other water recreation in a spectacular setting.

Sand Pit is the new OHV accessible campground located along the south shore of Sand Hollow Reservoir. The 30-site campground has six sites with water and electrical hook-ups, and five large group sites. Restrooms and showers are available.

Off-highway vehicle riding is allowed on the south and east sides of the reservoir. Sand Mountain, which is accessed by a tunnel located south of the OHV staging area, offers 16,000 acres of prime OHV riding.
