State Route 10 is a north-south road that cruises the Castle Valley between the high Wasatch Plateau and the rugged San Rafael Swell. There, to the east, are distant ridgelines that are inviting, if not a little foreboding. To the west, unusual mountainscapes climb up away from the valley -- not quite the red rock of the Southern Utah region and not like the mountains you're used to, . What you wouldn't give for an ATV right about now. This trip is in need of a base camp so you can hit all of these attractions in one trip. That is Millsite State Park.
In addition to camping, fishing, and boating, Millsite makes for a great launching place for OHV travel both in the Manti-La Sal National Forest and in the desert of the San Rafael Swell. The park also has access to hiking and biking trails and is next door to one of Utah’s most scenic golf courses. Make a reservation on the Utah State Parks reservation site.
