  • Gate still closed and locked on 11/8/2020. Have visited here before and it's fun to get a quick tourist pic while standing on the junction of 4 states. Maybe next year...  more »
  • This place is advertised all over the local area- but not until you get to the entry road is there a notice that the monument is closed. From what we could see at the closure gate, the tribal folks...  more »

  • I have to say the ride from Albuquerque is gorgeous. We went the back way through small towns and Pueblos. The monument is located in the land that God created. The views and lands are are amazing. There is a charge to enter the monument area. That’s where the wonder stops. It’s all dirt and only portapotties. The “ toilets” hadn’t been emptied or cleaned since Adam and Eve. Good thing there wasn’t a restaurant since I lost my appetite. Disgusting just isn’t descriptive enough. There is a time limit for standing in 4 states and taking pictures. The walls are filled with vendors who have t shirts and inexpensive souvenirs to beautiful high end jewelry and hand made native items. You don’t stay long but it’s worth the visit. Just be sure you won’t need a bathroom before you get there.
  • Definitely a place to stop and take some pictures so you can say you've been there. We went on a chilly, gloomy morning so there wasn't a lot of people. There are vendors with cool stuff too. Don't over think the technicalities of where the state lines actually are and just enjoy the only experience like this in the US.
  • 20 years ago when we visited it was free; now it is 5$US per person but definitely worth it. There are debates about the actual location being about 100 yards away, but it is a unique place to visit. 20 years ago you had to sort of climb up steps; now it is recessed and easier to reach (even if you have a wheelchair). The vendors around the marker are in nicer booths than before, and there are gifts of all types and prices if you are so inclined.
  • Bring sunscreen, a hat, a charged phone or camera, and cash ($5/person to get in)!!! This place is awesome!!! May have to stand in line to take pics at 'the spot' depending on how many people there are, but the lines move fast and people are very friendly and will take your picture if needed. Lots of neat authentic vendors with various items for sale. Portapotties are plentiful. You can hike out or stay at the monument. Wheelchair friendly, but the parking lot is VERY rough and you need to go slowly to avoid bottoming out sometimes.
  • To be honest, the Four Corners itself was not super impressive. It’s good and you can say you’ve been there. There are cool Native American shops to take a look. But the reason I gave five stars is because there are so many amazing places you will pass by to get to the Four Corners no matter where you are coming from. The road trip to the Four Corners was one of the best I’ve ever had!
