“Check it out if you're nearby”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We were on our way from Utah to Albuquerque, so it made sense to stop on our way by. The site is run by the Navajo Nation, not the US Government. It costs $3 cash per person. Parking is in a dusty field and the porta potties are not good at all. However, once you get to the monument itself, it is striking. The flags of each state fly in their quadrant, there are good overlooks available to get pictures of your loved ones straddling four states.

“It is what it is --- gotta go.”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

It's a marker in the middle of nowhere. It's $3.00 per person to get in but I can officialy say I've been to Utah now.

Yeah it's cheesy and yeah it's kind of a rip off to stand on a plaque, but it's part of America and you should see it.

“Tackiest place outside of Vegas”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Called here after a 50 mile detour from our trip, the monument itself is done really well but the surrounding tat stalls along with the portable chemical toilets in a dust bowl of a car park were massively off putting.

“Should be on the bucket list”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

You've got to put one limb in each of the 4 states that meet at this 4 corners monument. It is run by the Navajo Nation and is worth the 3 bucks a person to see it. There are booths that sell souvenirs and craft items. There is only dirt parking, but the monument area itself is well constructed and seems as though it's been renovated.

“Four corners and booths”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

If you're in the area, why not stop and see it so you can say you've been there. I wouldn't make it a special trip to go there.
The site is on a reservation and charges a few dollars to get in. The four corners site is surrounded by sales booths selling Indian wares. If you get there early you can avoid the crowds and get some decent picture of the site. Since the site is on Indian grounds those selling their wares are just trying to make a living and there are some decent buys, if you're into that. It won't take but a half-hour or so to see what you need to see and get pictures.
