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.

There really is not much there but the view which is spectacular and a shaded picnic shelter.We took our photos and had a picnic lunch at the shelter then on to other things. We had bought a state park pass when we started our trip so we got in for free. The pass is well worth the cost if you... More

It's not much more than some photos, but cool spot for $5 entry fee. You can walk around a bit but it's really constrained to the view (which is. It a bad thing).

An unexpected surprise after leaving Mexican Hat. Great views of the twisting and turning San Juan river. A different vista. Then, up the Moki Dugway, a gravel road with numerous switchbacks to a high plateau. Truly, a memorable, white-knuckle drive. A short cut, so to speak, to the Natural Bridges area. Do it!

This is a small State Park, with a great view of the Goosenecks on the San Juan River, in southern Utah. Some great photo opportunities here.
