Junction is a small, quiet town with less than 180 inhabitants. It is surrounded by mountains to the east and west. Frankly, there is not much to do or see in Junction itself, but the five national parks are a couple hours away and this location is a great home base for anyone wishing to take in a couple of them during their visit. Butch Cassidy's boyhood home is about 10 minutes away. Junction is also adjacent to the world famous Paiute ATV Trail and the perfect place to stage trail rides. The nights are cool and peaceful.
There is a picnic campground 7 miles up City Creek canyon to the west that is free and beautiful.
There is one gas station with snacks and drinks and a grocery store that offers the basics. There are restaurants 5 miles to the south in Circleville Utah and other restaurants in Marysvale Utah 14 miles north. The nearest pharmacy is in Panguitch 35 miles to the south or in Richfield 39 miles to the north.
