Stopped for 20 mins on the way to North Rim GC, Great little spot in the middle of nowhere. I wouldn't go too far out of your way to see it but if your heading along 191, definitely make the detour.

This place is so close to the road, it wouldn't make sense to just bypass it. I requires no hike. Just park your car, get out, and there it is! Great view of the San Juan River, snaking back and forth through the sandstones. You'll have to try to get a panorama shot of it because its too wide otherwise.... More

Just inside the entrance to the park, you can see the goosenecks - which are undoubtedly very impressive. Not sure what else there is to see since we only stopped to view the goosenecks. You do have to pay to get as far as the view, but it's worth the few $s for admission.

Very small park with the view outlook. View is really nice, worth for quick stop when you have time. Park has bathroom and picnic area.

This place would be awesome on a beautiful sunny day. We arrived to rain and cloudy skies. There is a fee for this location of $5.00. Was very surprised by that. I do recommend a stop if you are in the area.

After viewing the cliffs and valleys driving across Hwy 12 and 24, this was definitely different. The view of the San Juan twisting through the area is easily accessible, but there are no amenities other than picnic benches.

Not a big place, but the view goes on and on. Easy 60 minute detour on the way down highway 163 to/from Bluff, Blanding, or Monument Valley. Very windy when we were there.

Goosenecks SP is accessed off Utah 261, just a short drive North of Mexican Hat, Utah. Utah 261 is nicely paved, as is the 3 mile drive from 261 to Goosenecks SP. There is an entry "tollbooth" but it was unmanned when we were there. Entry is 5 dollars. Goosenecks has a great view of the goosenecks of the San... More

Having seen the fabulous Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River in Page AZ, Gooseneck State Park was somewhat of an anticlimax. Overpriced at $5 for a quick look over the edge.
