Apple Valley is a town in Washington County, Utah, United States, located 12 miles (19 km) east of Hurricane along SR-59. The population was 701 at the 2010 census.

Apple Valley was incorporated on October 15, 2004, and a 2007 population estimate by the US Census Bureau placed its population at 427. In 2006, some residents of the town signed a petition calling for dis-incorporation, saying that its incorporation was premature. They obtained enough signatures to call for a vote of dis-incorporation,[4] but the attempt was unsuccessful. Another dis-incorporation vote on June 19, 2012 also failed.[5]
