Since this is not a National Park, we paid the (comparably) small entrance fee of $5, and drove to the outlook. Wonderful view of the San Juan River that meanders 1000 feet below. - Good opportunity for a quick stop and nice pictures.

The park is located nine miles W-NW of Mexican Hat, UT, and the view of the loops in the San Juan River are phenomenal! The “Goosenecks” of the river are incised meanders in a valley at least 1000 feet deep. We paid $5 to a...More

Yes there is only one thing to see at this State Park... but what an attraction that one thing is. The magnitude of the Goosenecks are just jaw dropping. It is VERY well worth the side trip to see them, and $5 for an entire...More

This is a tiny state park with a humongous view. Take what you see in the pictures and duplicate it three times to get a concept of what the full 180 degree view is like. Takes 15 minutes to an hour to take in, depending...More

You have almost certainly see the goosenecks before, because almost anytime you read or see a feature about southern Utah, you will see pictures of Goosenecks State Park. It was nice to finally see this iconic site for ourselves. It’s a relatively short detour off...More

Three massive meanders make for an extraordinary sight. Combine with other features nearby, such as Mexican Hat, Valley of the Gods, Moki Dugway & Muley Point outlook. Just drive up, get out of your car and it's right there. Has bathroom facilities, some maps and...More

There is nothing more in the state park than a cul de sac. Park your car and walk a couple of steps and that is all that you have of the state park. You have view point of the different bends that have formed due...More

If you're debating between Goosenecks and Horseshoe Bend, the former is the hands down winner in our book. The main reason is the view, much more impressive in our opinion. On top of that, it's just steps away from the parking lot, vs. a 1.3...More
