It's a heck of a view for the low price of entry. It was not the 1000 foot drop-off that my guidebook hinted at (there are some shelves just over the edge), but it is still impressive. Geologically the layers are easy to see and very impressive. There are hiking trails available and those with mobility issues can get to... More

On our way to Moab and stopped here and so glad we did. Incredible views and landscape. Don't miss it when in the area.

While this park is very small and spare, it offers up close views of the harsh rocky bends that rise above the twisting San Juan river below that have to be seen to be believed.

If you are anywhere near the area definitely worth the stop and the $5 entry fee! Amazing views of the San Juan River 1000 feet below carving and "goose necking" around the mountains. Different scenery than we had seen anywhere else in Utah. Not too much to do there other than appreciate the view which is breathtaking. The woman at... More

We did not know exactly what to expect entering Gooseneck State Park. The beauty of the river below was well worth the admission fee. We were able to capture numerous photos and panoramas before departing.

Raw nature, that made me completely silence. I would never have visited Gooseneck State Park if the man at the visitor center did'nt tell me that it was a must. The drive towards it was also fabtastis with great views.

A pretty view of the meandering river that's created "goosenecks" in the landscape. There is a $5.00 entrance fee for looking over a view point, nothing else there to do. I certainly wouldn't go out of my way for it and if I had known there was a $5.00 entrance fee I probably wouldn't have bothered to stop at all.... More

Gooseneck State Park is a small park that allows you to see a river that wanders through canyons that are 1000 feet deep, revealing the geographic changes over millions of years. The river travels about 7 miles through the canyon that is about 1.5 miles as the crow flies. There is a $5 per car entry fee, a few benches... More

You basically drive several yards past the entrance booth and there you are. It's something to see but won't take more than 10-15 mins. You also can't actually see a full river bend from the overlook which in my opinion is part of what makes the goosenecks interesting.
