The Dixie National Forest is Utah's largest Forest and is comprised of 1,883,896 acres. It is divided up into four geographic areas and is located in the southwest portion of Utah. Red Canyon is a first-come, first-serve campground (no reservations) located 4 miles east of Highway 89 and 9 miles west of Bryce Canyon. Red Canyon is a forested area with sixty-million year old dark red rock castles protruding up from crimson sand. Schedule some time to explore Red Canyon. This area is regulated by the Forest Service and thus allows ATV's, horses and bicycles on the trails. There is no entrance fee since this is a part of Dixie National Forest rather than the National Park System.
