Goosenecks is ALL about the view. Not many other services, but $5/car is well worth the scenery you can't see very many places. (If the admission is a deal-buster, it's similar--but higher up--straight up UT-261 at Muley Point, but it's up the Moki Dugway!) Go near mid-day for best lighting down in the canyons, but anytime's impressive!

Goosenecks State Park of the San Juan is very eye-catching. The view is of 4 bends, twisting and turning. The picture you may have seen in geology books is what you get to see first hand. There is nothing else to do or see. You drive in and pay the $5, park, walk a few 100 feet and you have... More

Not much to do there but look over the edge and hike a bit but it was fascinating, We would return again.

We didn't stay here long, but we wanted to see the geological formations at Goosenecks so we made a quick stop and were not disappointed. I wouldn't call it a "must-do" but it you're in the area, it's worth checking out and taking some photos. Just $5 to enter. It's pretty cool!

We camped one night here in the rock/gravel area overlooking the "goosenecks" of the Green River. There are no campsites as such, and no toilets; just an outhouse. When you camp here, you just try to find a level place to park on the edge of the cliffs overlooking the goosenecks. The river views are eye popping. But not a... More

We didn't have time to stop last but we did this year and what a view. It is not to far off the main highway and definitely worth the time.

This is a State park for some reason very few people know. Whether people are tired of visiting the Monument Valley, located very close, whether they wish to save time, but they make a big mistake, passing by… Any traveler who dared to travel to these interesting places, should see all the most interesting in the path. It is best... More

If you stay or pass Monument Valley area, this should be a must to visit – it is only 30 min drive from MV. It is at least as good as more famous Horseshoe Bend in Page, AZ, if not better. Horseshoe shows one great meandering, but Goosenecks Park has three of them.

The San Juan River meanders through the park flowing for six miles yet only covering two miles between the park and Lake Powell. It is the largest example of meander in North America. A wide angle lens on your camera gives a nice picture.

I have to admit, this IS a unique natural feature. But after 5 minutes, I was ready to go. The state park charges to enter the area. Don't look for a really nice facility either. A few so so picnic tables and a men's room with the door ripped off the hinges and sold for scrap. If you're looking for... More
