Bluff is a small town with a big heart with 300 residents located in the San Juan River Valley in the southeastern corner of Utah.

Located along U.S. Highway 191, Bluff is bordered on the south by the San Juan River and the Navajo Nation, verdant farmland to the east and vast panoramic landscapes to the west. To the north, 300-foot sandstone bluffs, which were the inspiration for the town's name, are a dominant visual element serving as a dramatic backdrop for the community.

Bluff is one of those hidden gems that has accommodations for everyone, incredible places to eat, artists to admire, a living museum, and trading posts. Bluff offers everything you need to have an incredible desert escape.

  • The nice people who take care of the site made us stay to visit, and thanks to a film (in French!) we all learned about this small town, the reason for its creation the huge efforts that were necessary for the settlers to settle in the end bottom d e Utah. All is well highlighted and the Museum Shop sells many memories made in the corner, that change t-shirts made in china!

  • A lovely small museum eco that evokes the installation of settlers in the village of Bluff (leaving Monument Valley to the North on the 191) lovely by members of an association who perpetuate the memory of pioneer families and giving life in the place Films in several languages, including the french who interressera small and large houses furnished familiar objects; adults interested in comments and anecdotes specific to each family told also in french during this time, children will play in carts (to time or reconstituted) or climb on wooden horses... all together will be able to disguise with costumes made available free short a excellent informative stop and recreational I add this small museum is free and that he continues to live, a passage to the shop is welcome (although nobody there is reference, It is just quietly on a small sign)

  • The people here are lovely and very willing to share their knowledge of the local area. The facility is clean and well maintained. It would be fun for children. The outdoor displays are cute and more fun than truly historical.
  • I loved this place. The pioneers that made this journey were amazing people. The trail they made is a special place to be, and feel the pioneer spirit.
  • Bluff Fort is definitely worth visiting. It is a fabulous place full of history. One gets a very good feeling for the difficult pioneer times. Also on the doors to the different exhibits, there are buttons in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish that tell you the history. Mandarin will be added soon. Bluff Fort is definitely one of the best outdoor exhibits featuring Mormon pioneers settling the Southwest of Utah.
  • Wow what a great place to visit. Highly recommend. Free of charge. We did make a good donation.
  • This site is developing into a really nice historical re-creation. Great place for the family to visit.
