There isn't much do here except stop for fifteen minutes to look at the view and take pictures. They do have bathrooms that are simply a smelly hole in the ground so only use them if you can hold your breath a long time.

We drove to Goosenecks State Park after being at Arches State Park for the day. The scenery on the way was beautiful enough. The sight we saw when we arrived was phenomenal. The sharp, switchback formations of the Goosenecks is certainly something wonderful to see.

If you're interested in geology or just like a beautiful view this is a great place to go see very impressive I believe the one of the sign said this is the best example in the world of a certain type of meandering stream cat

There is not much to this state park other than the impressive views of the river but that is the highlight of the park. $5 charge.

Drive 3 mi from main road on paved highway. See the spectacular view for $5 or camp for $10/night. There is a pit toilet, no other facilities. Camping is dry with a fire pit and picnic table along the rim of the canyon which makes for spectacular views especially at sunset. You can hike quite a way around the rim,... More

A hidden gem in the southern corner of Utah. There's only one thing to see at Goosenecks but it's impressive. It's not the finest state/national park, but for the 5$ entrance fee it's worth stopping by.

This small park it's not far from Mexican Hat and the Monument Valley and it offers a spectacular view of the canyon. The visit takes about half an hour, there's just a short, very easy walk that gives the opportunity to take some nice pictures of the valley. Nice stop if you're making a tour.

in a way it is almost as neat as the Grand Canyon. It is very impressive. Just realize that if you drive north from here toward natural bridges you will be for 3 miles on a gravel switchback Road that is safe but scary for some.

Only a very quick visit is needed. The overlook is simple. There is only one stinky restroom. Only go if it is on your way.
