10 Great Hidden State Parks

The travel section of USA Today has this interesting article listing what it calls 10 great hidden state parks. Utah's Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park makes the list, with this summary text:

This desert park glows pink year-round thanks to the massive sand dunes that get their color from the region's distinctive red rocks. "It's very pink. It's a real majestic visual," Dubi says. The dunes, which can shift as much as 50 feet a year, are laced with off-road trails, many of which can be explored on ATVs. 435-648-2800.

Coral Pink is a great park in a phenomenal location, near Kanab, between Zion National Park and Grand Staircase National Monument. Many people drive past it on their way to Lake Powell or
Grand Canyon and hardly realize it is there. It is a great place to camp, ride ATVs and hike.

Some of Utah's state parks are well known and very popular. But some of my favorite are not treasures that are not well know. Which little known parks are your favorites?

Here are some I enjoy from that category.
