Wish we could have hiked to the overlook from the visitor's station but we did drive. Iconic natural site.

This is the same as Canyonlands - just a different viewpoint but same canyon. A state park about 3-4 miles for Canyonlands NP - there is an entry fee of $10 since it is a Utah State Park. Nice place to enjoy sunrise!

Fabulous views, nothing I have seen quite measures up to this place for mountains and distance. Makes you feel quite small in the measure of things. You can miss the Grand Canyon, but don't miss this place. Not crowded and you can explore all day.

On a very high plateau, looking down to the Colorado River way below, view of Lal Sal mountains and Canyonlands just just wonderful and panoramic. Our favorite view was from the Dead Horse Point. Highly recommended to visit this park with Canyonlands NP.

Stopped by on the way to Canyonlands National Park and I am so happy that we did. In the early morning was a little bit foggy so we had to come back in the afternoon. The views are spectacular and you can also see the Potassium Lakes Mine. It is an amazing place and it is worth the additional 8miles... More

The views from here is certainly great, and on it's own it would be quite a draw. However with Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands just up the road, I would recommend passing this by in order to spend more time at the park if you are pressed for time.

Stopped here as a side trip when visiting Canyonlands, as I wanted to photograph the oxbow bend in the river. The view of the river and Canyon are beautiful, though were not as clear to photograph because it was rainy when I arrived. I didn't know where exactly to find the view point initially - as it is not near... More

This is a State Park so the National Park Land Pass doesn’t allow entry. Entry fee is inexpensive and the views are well worth your time and money.

If you are going to Canyonlands this is a good side trip. The park building has great facilities and displays. The prime viewing area is a good hike from the center, but you can drive there as well so do it. You won't be sorry.
