Cottonwood Meadow Lodge consists of four beautiful cabins near Bryce Canyon. This property is unique because it is a central hub for visiting the many nearby national parks, outdoor recreation areas, and hiking and fishing destinations. Located in Southern Utah, Cottonwood Meadow Lodge is the ideal location for fly-fishing, with over 40 nearby streams, rivers, and lakes, including our very own two-acre pond teeming with Rainbow and Brown trout. You will need a fishing license, which you can obtain here. Once done filling out the online forms, you can pull up your license on your phone.
We are conveniently located between Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks with the North Rim of the Grand Canyon a two-hour drive away. Visitors enjoy ATV trails, horseshoe games, hiking expeditions, nature photography, and simply taking in the majestic scenery. All of this can be done either at Bryce Canyon, famous for its Hoodoo rock formations, or at Zion National Park, both of which are an easy drive from Cottonwood Meadow Lodge.
Plan a day trip to one of the neighboring towns of Panguitch or Hatch for local arts and crafts, mom-and-pop general stores, cafés, and abundant open space. Or just make yourself at home at Cottonwood Meadow, where you’ll get to know the caretakers, Jerry, Jan and their dog Jessie, and soak in the rich history of this diverse and timeless landscape.
At day’s end, guests often gather around the fire pit and share the day’s adventures while watching the moon rise and the stars open up the night sky. And be sure to bring your telescope – Cottonwood Meadow Lodge is a stargazer’s paradise!
