Add this stop over to your list of other South Utah places to visit. The park is very compact, and if you just drive the loop without hiking, it is still spectacular to visit.

A visit can be highly recommended. Can be ideally combined with a visit of Monument Valley. A bit remotely located. Very nice campground.

This place is a hidden gem. It is perfect for a half day visit or a loop drive when you feel like getting out and taking short hikes. The great art about the trails is that they give you plenty of options to extend the hiking if you want. It can be a short jaunt from the car all the... More

This out of the way National Monument is a delightful place to explore and enjoy local ancient history. Taking the canyon hike, which goes underneath the 3 huge natural bridges enhances your experience of thes natural wonder. If you are alert, you'll see cliff dwellings, rock art, and colorful lizards on your hike. You could easily spend 2 days here,... More

If you don't like the circus atmosphere of most of the bigger parks you will love this place. The bridges were spectacular in their own right but the quiet little campground and the friendly staff at the visitor center make this a special place. Don't wait till late afternoon and think you will find a campsite as they fill up... More

This park is considered to be one of the darkest (no light pollution) locations in the US. Take your camera and tripod and be prepared for some fabulous star photography. The park is open 24/7 so there is no problem entering the park at 2:30am. There are only 13 camp sites so unless you get there very early in the... More

Loved the loop drive and being able to take in 3 hikes. Lovely views and not alot of people. You can pull over and read the posts and decide if its a hike for you or not - depending on how much time you have. Sipapu takes the longest up and back.

Only 3 bridges to see from a distance. You would need to hike to them to better appreciate them. Disappointing. Also, staff was not friendly or helpful. Overall, not worth the time.

Although not as spectacular as Arches NP, it has its own personality. If you are willing to do a little hiking, you will see its real beauty, although you can see the bridges from the viewpoints (9 mile paved one-way loop). The awesome comes when you descend to the bottom. There is a visitor's center, camping, picnic area, and restrooms.

Good loop trail for hiking to the 3 different arch overlooks or a longer trail into the bottom of the canyon. It was so scenic and quiet. A stop at the visitor center is informative.
