    This park offers a magnificent view across the river below. Not too far from the highway (about 10 minutes)  more »

    I can only join the General reviews. Very nice Park, not crowded, wonderful views, you should look at in any case. We are driven by Green River on the foothills of the Lake Powell there, a fantastic track.

    The place is lost in the middle of nowhere. Less famous than Horseshoesbend but is definitely worth it! Place was not crowded so it was very nice. Maybe a little bit too expensive....  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.
