Veyo Pool & Crawdad Canyon is a privately owned, family resort located just 15 minutes from St George, Utah. It’s been
a local hot spot since the early 1950’s and continues to be a fun recreation destination for people locally as well as from
around the world. Summer temperatures in the canyon are typically 12-15 degrees cooler than in St George. As a result,
our customers visit the canyon to cool off on hot summer days. We offer many unique attractions, including the
Natural Warm Spring:
Lava-heated water flows directly from the earth into a pool originally built in the early 1950’s. The new owners are in the process of renovating the pool.
This is the only privately owned rock climbing park in the state of Utah. Climbers from around the world enjoy climbing the canyon cliffs all day in the summer because tall trees throughout the canyon keep the walls cool. Last year we had climbers from Burma, Ukraine, Russia, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, South Africa, Canada, all over South America and from many more countries.
We offer 19 beautiful campsites in the canyon along the river.
Kids come from all around the region to catch crawdads found in the Santa Clara River, which runs through the property.
Multiple tiny warm springs flow into the river, warming the water, making it the ideal habitat for crawdads so they are plentiful.
We are well known for our great food. Our grill offers delicious burgers, hand-dipped corn dogs, pie shakes and much more.
We regularly host corporate events, school/church parties, weddings, family reunions, birthday parties and all sorts of other events/activities.
For the past 24 years, the canyon has only been open May – September. New ownership is seeking a manager who
can help us turn the canyon into a year-round resort. We plan to continue improving the property and eventually add
lodging so visitors have another option to stay the night with us besides the campground.
