Small but beautiful

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

The view is quite spectacular. The San Juan River mianders back and forth in a goose neck shape in a spectacular canyon. It costs $5.00 to get in per car. There is a toilet and a picnic table.

What a rip off. Worst State Park we have ever seen. A parking lot with a pit toilet and a view of the bends in the river. Get the postcard.

Pay attention to the signage or you'll miss it. Nice little stop off. The fee was $5 to come in and we didn't mind paying for a great view and a bathroom stop.

We heard about this landscape quite by chance and made our way there after being at Natural Bridges State Park - unless you go the longway round, its quite a drive and its easy to see why the Goosenecks are less visited than some. That said, a bus party did show up and at leat 40 people snook a quick... More
