  •  Following not 10 miles away from the Canyonlands NP dead horse point. Gate comes into view. Think how much will be withheld, and what closed. Put in the Park. Past five o'clock. I wonder if that's why? Information is closed. Enjoyed the views from the Grand view point in the back. Canyon varied, and then join the two rivers are formed. 270 degree views from here.

Where to stay in Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park offers camping in two first-come, first-served campgrounds and various primitive sites throughout the park. Most park visitors opt to stay in the nearby town of Moab, which offers plenty of places to rest in the form of national chain motels, rustic inns with a Southwestern vibe, and lodges. A few bed and breakfasts sit north and south of town on the way to the park, and a couple of ranches and lodges lie a bit farther from town, offering more luxurious digs in the majestic setting of southern Utah's high desert.
