Welcome to the Friends of Utah State Parks!  We are bikers, hikers and horseback riders. We are geocachers, boaters and off-roaders.  We are history buffs, golfers and campers. We have a passion for the affordable, close-to-home recreation opportunities our state parks offer.

Take your recreation passion to the next level by making a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of Utah State Parks and becoming a member. We advocate for the preservation and protection of Utah’s unique natural, cultural and recreational resources, to keep them around for generations to come.

Events of past years have made it clear that we cannot take Utah’s state parks for granted. The 1957 Utah Legislature established the state park system as a public trust and birthright to all Utahns. We must ensure our children and grandchildren inherit these places of beauty, natural wonder, history and culture. We must speak up today.
