From the prominence of Dead Horse Point, 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River, an ever changing landscape unfurls. 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 . What story will you discover on your visit to Dead Horse Point State Park?

Great view and park.

It was a very hot day, but the trip to Dead Horse Point State Park was well worth the time and effort.

When we saw this was a "State Park" we almost drove right on by to canyon lands.... that would have been a mistake. The views in this park were some of our favorites on our whole trip. The vast view of the river, the colors... so amazing. Don't miss it!

I love this place and just took my grandson there and gave him a view of what will become the Grand Canyon down river. Also pointed out the road down below in the canyon and later took him for a ride down in the canyon on that road (Pot Ash Road). He loved it and could not get enough photos... More

After visiting Arches National Park we expected a let down at Dead Horse Point State Park. However, while the rock formations are not as grand, the view of the canyon is spectacular and worth the $10 state park fee to visit. Nice visitors center, camp grounds, picnic areas and good roads.

This was a nice little State park that was a surprise side trip. We didn't know anything about it and decided to drive through . It was really nice and had some beautiful scenery. It's not extremely large so you just need a couple of hours to drive around and see some of the sights. Good opportunity for some pretty... More

Dead Horse State Park is a must see on your way into the national park. Awesome views a short distance from the visitors center. One of my favorite stops

Went to see the sunset (as recommended) and wasn't disappointed. Great panoramic views of the canyons. Easy to walk around but personally stayed away from the edges. Fantastic.

Loved this park and should not be missed. We arrived in the evening before sunset and almost no one was there. Too bad for them!

I stayed at Canyon lands National Park for 2 nights. I tried to get into this park but its books up QUICKLY. I spend about an hour at this park and took a look around because I know that one day I will be back here for camping. What I saw impressed me, nice camp sites, clean campground, clean toilets...
