by richiecdisc

Kodachrome Basin State Park is part of Utah's extensive and well managed state park program. They can appear expensive and fee-laden at first but if you are camping and in need of a shower, they are a true haven. The entrance fee of $6 is per vehicle, not person so if in a group it's quite reasonable. This fee is included in your camping fees so if you are camping, it's free to get in. Showers are $2 per person which is pretty reasonable compared to many places we took showers. If you are camping, showers are free. So, for the $16 camping fee you get free entrance and showers. Compared to camping at Bryce Canyon National Park for $15 and having to pay for showers and your entrance into the park.

The park is located off Route 12, down Cottonwood Canyon Road, about 25 miles and 45 minutes from Bryce Canyon National Park. It is also about 22 miles and a little over an hour from Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument down the very scenic and unpaved Cottonwood Canyon Road.
