  • We stopped here on the way from Monument Valley to Bluff. The view is stunning. They do have campsites on the overlook, but there is NO WATER.  more »
  • We were passing and found this as an enroute attraction. So glad we stopped as it was one of the most impressive sights we saw on our Utah trip. The view is simply amazing.  more »
  • This park is administered by the State of Utah. You are basically just visiting for the view and the opportunity to take photos of how the San Juan River has created a beautiful canyon. $5 to enter.  more »

  • Epic views! This is essentially the very northern end of the Grand Canyon (not really, but sort of). It's a state park, so you can take your dogs on trails (on leash). The facilities are great (there's an awesome shade structure at the main overlook point) and quite a few places to camp. Watch out for the open range cows on you drive in! They cross the road at random spots.
  • Me and my family had a wonderful picnic here. Enjoyed every minute, I also liked the covered picnic tables. Beautiful scenery!
  • Small and out of the way, the view is fantastic... It is almost indescribable. In the space of about 2 miles, the river gorge makes 6 gooseneck turns, hence the name. And it is hundreds of get deep.
  • The park is easy to find, the views are fantastic and the folks running the booth are very pleasant! Very desolate, very dry so bring water and food. Very clean and quiet so be respectful of your neighbors! We had an awesome visit!
  • Fee fee fee fee fee fee.....I get it. Can't look at a river without the damned fee. It was a cool river though and a great view. Not many people, but I was informed by staff that will change as they are going to expand. That's a shame.
