Small reservoir set against red rock background just west of St. George.
The reservoir attracts various waterbirds depending on the time of year. There is always something to look at here. During the fall, winter, and spring lots of waterfowl use the reservoir, including HOODED MERGANSER and GREATER SCAUP. Spring and fall migration bring other waterbirds, including waders, and various shorebirds. GREEN HERON is occasionally seen here on the far shores where there is vegetation. NEOTROPIC CORMORANT has also been found here on several occasions. A lone BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE was observed here for 3 days in January 2002. Given the remote location vagrants are always a possibility here.
Head west on Sunset Blvd in St. George passing through the town of Santa Clara. This road becomes Old HWY 91. Shortly after mile marker 20 you will see the entrance to the Kayenta Subdivision. About 4 tenths of a mile further you will see a small paved road on the north side of the road (this road is only a few feet before entering the Shivwits paiute Indian Reservation - if you see that sign then you are at the right place). This small paved road leads up a few hundred yards to the parking area for Ivins Reservior.
