Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water and wind creating a visual masterpiece. Plants and animals surviving on the edge of existence face many challenges of extreme conditions within this high desert environment. Stories of ancient hunters, resting along the cliff tops while knapping chert in preparation for the next hunt, and cowboys of the late 1800's, chasing wild mustangs onto Dead Horse Point, using the narrow neck to block off the natural corral .

We were recommended this park by our B&B host, according to the amount of time we had. My husband and I have travelled many national parks and were impressed by this state park. It reminded us of Grand Canyon, but on mini scale. We were there to witness the beautiful sunset . Only thing some trails were not properly stated.... More

My wife and I camped at Dead Horse Point State Park for 3 nights. We loved this campsite as well. Dead Horse Point is the only point out of visiting Utah's 5 national parks that made my jaw drop. The view from Dead Horse was spectacular. My opinion is way better than the Grand Canyon and any view from Canyonlands... More

Very unexpected! Took my breath away! Husband and I did a 12 day camping trip through Utah, and I have to say, this was one of my favorites! First of all the view at dead horse point...breathtaking! I actually thought it was prettier than the grand canyon! It was amazing. The park is little, compared to the National Parks, but... More

If you are traveling to Arches and Canyonlands National Park near Moab Utah, make sure to spend some time at Dead Horse Point. We went there for an early morning photo shoot and were not disappointed. The entrance to Dead Horse Point State Park is on the same road as the entrance to Canyonlands National Park. As you stand up... More

We were recommended by our hosts to visit this viewpoint to see the scenic views of the Colorado River. We were not disappointed. The views are stunning from this state park where you have to pay an entrance fee. There is not a lot more to say other than we enjoyed the views and would highly recommend anyone visiting the...

I had a blast mountain biking here. If you aren't going to be biking you will just come and look out at the view, which is absolutely incredible. Better than most I saw in Arches or Canyonlands. Seriously, if you must choose between Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point, choose Dead Horse Point. The Bike trails were great because they included... More
