We were in Moab for three days and used two days in Arches and one day in the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands. Combining Canyonlands with the Dead Horse State Park makes an excellent day trip from Moab. All of the major overlooks marked on the map you get at the entrance are recommendable, in particular The Grand... More

Very beautiful park with amazing landscapes. The canyons are amazing. It just doesn't compare to Arches. Make sure you visit Canyonlands first if you are going to see both.

Loved the scenic drive and overlooks. A must do! We liked the scenery, good road, and walkways. Didn't like that only one part has paved roads for cars.

Many Great views without having to leave the car. Short walks to the better views. Fill up in Moab before going. Take plenty of water.

We didn't know a lot about Canyonlands compared to other parks we have visited, so it was a delightful surprise as the park unfolded before us as we drove in. It's just beautiful, my spouse found it as interesting (or more so) than the Grand Canyon. The views are breathtaking. It's very hot, at least in the summer, so make... More

We were scheduled to camp a night in Willow Flat campgrounds but it was honestly way too buggy.... tiny gnats that fly in your ears and practically in your mouth. July is really too hot to camp in Moab. Aside from the buggies the view was out of control. We stayed to watch the sunset.

Spent an afternoon in the Island in the Sky district of the park. The drive in is deceiving but dramatic landscape unfolds before you. Words and photographs really can't represent the aura of the park. Just being there is an experience. The park is big and would require multiple days to see it all (due to time/drive constraints, we will... More

We combined Canyonlands and Dead Horse State Park in a day trip from Moab. Incredible views from the hikes. We did Grand View Point hike - amazing views along the way but especially at the end of the trail. Well worth the hike. Be sure to take water on any hikes in the area - it gets hot! At the... More

National Parks all seem to have places that are crushed with tourists and those a bit off the beating track. Canyonlands had much less pressure than Arches, but amazing geology and hiking. We didn't get a chance to off road - but that looked like the way to go. Trips would benefit from multi day trips.

Needles is extraordinary, standing at the overlook, even in the blazing sun, the wind whipping around is breathtaking. The Island in the Sky was like an oven, but the view is expansive.
