  • If you like a busy Arches N.P. is then this is the place for rest. Wow what a view! This place you should definitely not be missed!! There is a small explanation about the origin of Needles. Admission is free. There are fantastic places for a picnic. And there is a toilet block. On several spots at the viewpoint are benches near the edge. Keep an eye on your children, there are a minimum of fences at the edge! And there is a geocache hidden!

  • We fell in something. Therefore the following note: the often mention points "Needles Outlook" and "Anticline Outlook" are located in the Canyonlands recreation area and not in the Canyonlands National Park. The view is quite nice (note that the road to the Anticline is gravel), but who wants to see the needles from close, must continue in the southern national!

  • Departing from Blanding, decided to make a detour by Needles, knowing that we wouldn't have time to go hiking. Bad we took, the detour is important, even if the road is nice and point of view if he is nice, is not top. This is probably coming down and walking you will realize the importance of these Needles

  • Hard to describe the experience at this place. It's off the beaten path, but the view is a truly once in a lifetime unforgettable experience. Pretty close 2nd place to coming out of the tunnel at Yosemite. Awesome views and bathrooms are available. Railings. Good place for people with disabilities to access and experience the overwhelming views these parks have to offer.
  • Go there, it's worth the detour. No fences in many places, so be careful. Awesome views. Bring binoculars, some formations are far away.
  • Probably pretty. It was foggy & snowy when we went there. 😞
  • Needles overlook is not a famous point (there was only one more car when we reached there). Its about 20 miles off Route 191. The road is well maintained (with a few bumps). It is worth visiting to get a yet perspective of how Colorado River has shaped the landscape !! Must visit !!!
  • Awesome panoramic view, the scale is absolutely immense to see in person. Worth taking a detour here from the main highway

Where to stay in Moab

For affordable accommodations away from tourist crowds, stay outside Moab's busy downtown. Many inns in this area offer free shuttle services to the central part of town, allowing you quick and easy access to Moab's finest shops and restaurants. If you do not plan to spend much time in your room, consider staying at a budget-friendly motel or hostel. For the ultimate in outdoorsy options, campgrounds inside the area's national parks make up what they lack in modern amenities with their panoramic views of the red desert.
