“Certainly worth a stop if you're anywhere near”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

If you're heading west after visiting the spectacular Mesa Verde National Park, it would be a shame to miss the Four Corners Monument, which is less than a mile off the main road leading to Page and Lake Powell. True, the monument is no big deal, but it certainly was fun for our family of five. Read the official website and you'll see that the Navajos make no sweeping claims for this place. As other reviewers have written, it is what it is. We loved the fry bread, enjoyed looking at all the Indian handiwork and talking to the artisans, and tolerated the port-a-potties. (It's in the middle of the desert, for heaven's sake. Carry some tissue with you.) Considering the treatment the Dineh received from the American government in the 1800s and 1900s, I hardly think we can balk at paying $3 a person to get into one of their attractions.

“Ok”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is an ok place, unique place, four states at one time. Nothing else around here, vendors are there selling local crafts, go, stand in four states at one time, can't do it anywhere else, then drive to see ship rock in New Mexico

“Unfortunate disappointment”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

What a rip-off! We had been here several years before but now it is run by the Navajo Tribe and is nothing more than a commercial rip-off. It now costs $3 per person to see a round monument in the ground that isn't even accurate - it's ten feet off the actual four corner site. Surrounding it are bazillions of booths where the natives sell their wares. It's a sad display and not worth it.

“If you are driving this way, it may be worth a stop - otherwise no.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

All I can say is wow...this place was not what I was expecting. It's in the middle of a really ugly part of the desert, it cost $3 per person to get in and there isn't much to it. Like everybody else said, there are no welcome centers, nothing educational...just the monument and a few Navajo vendors. The monument is fine...but when we went there was at least an hour line to take a picture. So unless this thrills you...I don't recommend going out of your way to see it.

“Very interesting place”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We visited on a very hot day, but it was worth the visit. It is interesting to be able to be physically in four states at the same time which was accomplished by putting your feet and hands in the different states. Since this is on the Navajo reservation, there is a $3.00 per person fee to enter. The Navajo have booths neatly around the monument. Their prices are good, but the jewelry started to look the same.
