Our trip to Dead Horse Point on recommendation from tourist information.. We had only been in Moab a few hours and was quite tired, we were so glad we made the effect. The observations point is right up against the Colorado River, so you have an amazing view of the cliffs and the river below. At both Grand Viewpoint and... More

Loved the campground!!! Beautiful beautiful spot on top of the world. Friendly vibe. Bring water. But there is a good sink to wash pots. The bathrooms are good: flush toilets, sinks with running water, but loud hand dryers so don't camp beside it. The sunset and stars are amazing.

This place is away from CNP and will have to additional ticket to go and see the point. If you have seen horseshoe bend then you have seen the best and this can be avoided.

If you want a Grand Canyon like experience without crowds then is a place for you. Its a killer view from the Dead Horse Point. It is a State Park so you can't get in with a National Park Pass. But the fee is just 10 dollars for a car so not too bad at all. It is definitely worth... More

We love, loved this state park. The cost was ten dollars and worth every penny. We ate our picnic lunch on the balcony of the visitor center. We had a spectacular view of the canyon. Then we drove out to Dead Horse Point. As we were walking out to it a gentleman stopped me and said, “man, I was just... More

This is the number one state park in Utah! They say make a reso way in advance if you want to stay here. You are limited to one week. Great photos from here as well.

Another traveler told us the story of Dead Horse State Park and the horses that died because they could not get to the water so we decided to check it out. This is a state park with a $10 admission fee and well worth it. The enormous expanse of land was remarkable and it put the story into perspective.

This is a state park, not in Canyonlands, so you pay separately to get in. I think it's worth the $10 for the view, but other people may not have that same opinion. I didn't get to hike or anything; we just went for some photo ops and it was beautiful!

Well worth the $10. Easy trails and great overlook views. This park can be done the same day as Canyonland NP if you don't do the longer hikes.
