“Interesting spot with inexpensive native american gifts”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

To be honest I wasn't expecting much. But since we were in the area I thought it would be cool to see the monument. Plus, the kids were excited for it! There was not much of a crowd so we paid the $3 per person charge and stood on the actual four corner marker all within 5 minutes of arriving. After that we browsed the vending stands and found quite a few gifts which were authentic and pretty inexpensive. Much less expensive here than in Albuquerque. Worth the drive.

“Wide open vista”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

There's a landmark staked at the "4 corners" and a compass on floor. Very comfortable view with lot of sky, and clouds. Souvenir vendors are nearby in semi covered marketplace. Indian snack fried bread is delicious with a few flavor options. Must try it!

“Meh”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

As others have said - there's really not much to it. It's fine for a break if you're driving by, but it's not worth going out of your way for.

“Fun to think you're in 4 states at once”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

But this place was swarming with Native American vendors which totally turned me off. It's cool to be able to say that I've been here. But it really wasn't all the impressive. The drive here really took us way off course. My parents had fun; so I guess in the end it was worth the extra time.

“A MUST-see!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We stopped at the Four Corners Monument on our way from Mesa Verde to the Grand Canyon, and it was WONDERFUL! We stopped around 9am, which was the perfect time to stop--it wasn't real busy yet. The only challenge is that the actual location where the four states intersect is the main point of interest, so you have to wait your turn to get pictures. However, the families that were there at the same time as us were polite and patient ... no one takes an overly-long time on the medallion and no one has a problem giving your family time to get pictures. There are also individual Navajo vendors that surround the perimeter of the monument--lots of handmade jewelry, pottery and souvenirs. Because the land is privately owned, there is a $3/person charge (children under 6 are free) but it was completely worth it. We were pulling a 36-foot 5th-wheel behind our truck and there was plenty of room to park. My main suggestion is to get there early: there were only two families waiting to take pictures when we got there, and by the time we left at 10:30a, there were at least 20 families lined up, waiting to get pictures at the medallion!
