The first Marysvale families arrived in 1864, 18 years before Moore's Old Pine Inn was built. A fort built near the Inn protected settlers in the Black Hawk Indian war. Two settlers were killed so the town was abandoned. In 1869, two prospectors found waterfalls, gold and the mysterious remains of an old arrastra (possibly Spanish in origin) and the Bullion Canyon gold rush began.
Moore's Old Pine Inn, Utah's oldest hotel and the original Pines Hotel, was built in 1882 in a forest of Ponderosa trees. New York Times Newspapers from 1882 are still glued to the rafters.
Marysvale was at the end of the historic Denver and Rio Grand Railroad making Marysvale a railroad and gold mining town. During this boom, Zane Gray wrote Riders of the Purple Sage while staying in the Pines Hotel and Butch Cassidy rested here between exploits.

Located in Marysvale, 2 blocks east of main street, is located at the base of a large hill, bordered by the creek on the north side. Very nice pavillion for conversation, usually a fire going every morning and eve. Park customers often play cards, bingo, etc.. in pavillion. The owners, Ron and Glenda Bushman sponsor weekly bingo, regular ice cream socials, appetizer nights, etc.. But the Biggest sponsored event happens every Saturday night... When Ron whips up a dutch oven dinner for the entire park. The meat and taters are provided for a small fee $2-$3.. and the side dishes are all pot luck. Gauranteed you will never go away Hungry.. Ron always makes sure there is plenty for seconds and often serves the leftovers on Sunday. Ron really knows how to make a Dutch oven work..
Great views, lots of trees, nice facilities, but most of all is the atmosphere.. You are truly treated as a friend by Ron, his Wife and Kids who help out around the park. You can drive your ATV's in the park and out of the park to the Giant Paiute ATV Trail.
