You need to get off the beaten path and check out the back roads but you better have four-wheel drive....lol

The view from the end of the road was spectacular, but honestly we preferred looking at The Neck, the place where the top of the cliff where the road is narrowed to about 30-40 feet before sloping away to steep dropoffs. Being able to drive...More

Went to the big 5 Utah national parks on our spring break, along with several state parks. This place is gorgeous. Tied for my favorite stop along with Arches.

It’s easy to skip this as it’s wedged between Canyonlands and Arches NP’s, but don’t do it. It has great vistas that, despite it’s proximity to Canyonlands, are quite different from the NP. If you like hiking you can take a 4 mile hike that...More

Great for sunsets. A $20 entrance fee but worth it. A nice trail to walk around and view this amazing area a mini Grand Canyon. A visitor center, camping and a cafe in the park. Would recommend

Loved this State Park. Visitors center and the observation decks were clean and well maintained. Gives you a great view into Canyonlands National Park.

Worth the $20 admission (since it's a Utah State Park instead of a National Park, the NP Annual Pass isn't accepted)! We went for sunset (arrived about an hour early) and it was beautiful!

The view from Dead Horse Point in the park is awesome and amazing. There are many hiking and mountain biking trails. Not very crowded--very very quiet. Would not miss this park if in the area.

We enjoyed our visit to this state park. Entrance fee was $20 for a car, good for 3 days. The park is rather narrow, did not stay at the campgrounds, but the history in interesting and the hikes are easy with good views. It is...More
