Road Creek Inn Provides the Perfect Getaway for Reunions, Retreats

Make your family reunion unforgettable in the peaceful seclusion of Wayne County, where fresh air, national parks, natural lakes, Native American and pioneer history, provide endless opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing and culture.

Road Creek Inn, located in Loa, is now taking reservations for the year 2019. With 15 guest rooms, large gathering areas, and a full kitchen, the historic hotel is perfect for educational programs, family reunions, weddings, youth camps and business conferences.

The current Road Creek Inn once housed the Zion's Cooperative Mercantile Institution (ZCMI) Loa outlet from 1912-20. Other merchants operated in the store, including Isaac Wax from 1928-1940 when the store was known as the Loa Co-op, or “Ikie’s Store.”

Now more than 100 years old, Road Creek Inn also serves as a field station for Southern Utah University, the official “University of the Parks.” The hotel was completely renovated in 2012, and now offers state-of-the-art amenities such as Internet access, a sauna for relaxing after a day of hiking, in-room microwaves and refrigerators, standard king and queen rooms and two deluxe suites with three king-sized beds.

Located 22 miles from Fish Lake, Utah’s largest natural freshwater lake, Road Creek Inn is also just minutes from Capitol Reef National Park, Fishlake National Forest, Canyonlands National Park and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The opportunities for outdoor excursions are endless, and the beauty and peacefulness of the remote region offers the perfect outdoor enthusiast getaway for reunions, retreats and group excursions.

The historic hotel is also a short drive from several historic Mormon pioneer towns and buildings, Native American ruins and protected forest lands.
