Nestled in a pocket of the spectacular Virgin River Gorge, this recreation area is surrounded by colorful cliffs and rocky canyons.
Take the Cedar Pockets Interchange and find yourself in the middle of a wilderness wonderland. The Virgin River Canyon Recreation Area is the only developed campground you will find on the Arizona Strip. Whether you are having a picnic, or spending the night, don’t neglect to hike the short trails leading to the Virgin River, and to a hilltop site where geology and history are explained. Keep a lookout for Bighorn Sheep who live on the rocky crags above the gorge.

    Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous, and it was taken in Arizona. I must go there! Funny that I find this beautiful area from you and you don’t even live in the US. Probably when you were here visiting Johnny! Awesome work!

  • Ohhh Barbara this is such a wonderful area, you will love it to go there for a visit! The whole canyon is so super and very beautiful! Yes Johnny and I where on a road trip and stopped here and we didn’t go, we loved it so much!!!
    Happy Weekend & Hugs, Joke ;-)
