Duck Creek Village is an unincorporated area that sits smack dab in the middle of the Dixie National Forest. It is located 30 miles east of Cedar City, in Kane County, and sits at an impressive 8,500 feet of elevation.
Due to the high elevation, Duck Creek gets 246″ of snow a year! If you like snowmobiling, snowshoeing and other winter sports–you’re in heaven! Or if you just like being curled up with a good book in front of the fire, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to do that as well (the fancy term for it is “purposely snowed in”).
The summertime remains a favorite time of the year at Duck Creek as well. The higher elevation lends itself to cooler temps, a welcome respite from the scorching heat of Southern Utah. Geographically, it is situated between 2 of Utah’s most stunning national parks, Zion and Bryce, roughly an hour drive from each.
