Kodachrome Basin is a small state park in the U.S. State of Utah. It is situated 5,800-foot above sea level not far from Bryce Canyon National Park near Cannonville, Utah. Geologists believe Kodachrome Basin State Park was once similar to Yellowstone National Park with hot springs and geysers.
In 1948 the National Geographic Society explored and photographed the area for a story that appeared in the September 1949 issue of National Geographic. They named the area Kodachrome Flat, after the then relatively new brand of Kodak film they used.
In 1962 the area was designated a State Park. Fearing repercussions from the Kodak film company for using the name Kodachrome, the name was changed to Chimney Rock State Park, but renamed Kodachrome Basin a few years later with Kodak’s permission
