The only place in the United States where four states intersect as one point, Four Corners Monument was originally marked in 1912 with a simple cement pad. The monument has since been renovated and now features a granite and brass pad that is decorated with flags from each state. Stand and take a photo at the crossroad. Or visit the demonstration center with Navajo artisans and pick up handmade jewelry and crafts. You'll have the opportunity to sample traditional Navajo food at nearby vendors. Take water with you--there is no running water or electricity at this site.

  • We had to pay $5 per person. Not worth it charging per vehicle would make more sense. Bathrooms were closed. No food vendors as advertised. The vendor area around the monument had room for about 40 ve...  more »
  • Such a cool monument. Four places at once. Interesting vendors dot the perimeter. Half day activity.  more »
  • While enroute to Zion N.P. we had to make a 2nd stop at the Four Corners Monument because the location was moved slightly from where it was when we were there last. It seems the site was slightly off ...  more »

  • This monument is fun because you can actually stand in 4 states at the same time! There are Native American craftsmen booths encircling the monument with many types of jewelry, clothing, pottery, native crafts, etc. The prices vary so check them all out before deciding. There is incredibly skilled craftsmanship there and you can find beautiful works for collecting or gifting. There was two mobile trailers offering Navajo tacos and like foods and cold drinks. I recommend taking water and an umbrella as it can be very hot and dry out there in the desert.
  • The American Indians were very nice. I say American Indians because my friend who belongs to the Chickasaw Indian Nation says American Indians. It's right there in the name Chickasaw Indian. I parked in the wrong spot and they told me to park somewhere else. Then I went and put my head in Four Corners of the United States states at once. I didn't buy anything, but I made the lady at the gate laugh that was fun. I will tell you the joke or whatever I said that I told her but I forgot what it was. It's in the middle of the desert. You should probably have water with you but you should have known that anyway when you were driving through the desert.
  • Pictured is a random woman I took a picture of. We drove way out of the way to do a bit we’re sure has never been done before at Four Corners, and boy was it worth it. This was a monument that actually had some informative plaques, an aesthetically pleasing layout, and neat kiosks at the sides. The bathrooms are at least closed temporarily, so plan for that, and expect some people to be impatient waiting to take “their” picture, but overall, a fun and worthwhile stop, especially if you’ve been driving for a while.
  • It's what you think. A marker with the four states coming together. Not much else. But it's a check mark on the bucket list. And the Arizona landscape to get there was nice. We got their early in the morning and hardly anyone else there. All the vendors we're still setting up which was nice.
  • There's a few native american artists selling interesting souvenirs. I bought a white painted red rock covered with symbols. The lady explained the meaning of most of them. From good luck to keep the evil spirits away. Neat.
