“Still under construction but great to buy souvenirs”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

After spending money at Monument Valley Navajo Park we continued our road trip and went to the Four Corners Monument - there isn't a lot there but the surprise was the souvenirs stands, at least 3/4 of the price you paid for Navajo pottery and jewelry at Monument Valley Navajo Park.

We spent about $100.00 US and about 3 pottery items that were very good quality and look stunning in our living room. All hand made and the people making them were selling them and could tell you all about the process from start to finish.

This was a great find for a small entry fee to the park.

“When you're in the neighborhood”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Even as an avid traveler and "place collector," I couldn't urge somebody to go 500 miles out of their way to see this. But if you are visiting Dinétah, this is worth taking a short detour. In addition to the sheer novelty of the spot, if you come during tourist season the plaza will be lined with vendors offering everything from tacky t-shirts to hand-made crafts. I visited with a very nice lady, Ms. Yabeny, while she put the finishing touches on a black and white etched trinket box that sits on my bookshelf today. Not often you can converse with the artist while she makes your item! Plus I got some frybread to nosh on! It can be very windy, and the restrooms are far from wonderful, but it is what it is. And don't complain about paying $3.00 After all, the Diné were here first!

“Unique Place to Visit!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

The Four Corners Monument is a must-do! It only takes a few minutes to take a quick cute picture in all 4 states, but it’s worth your time. There are little stands around the monument selling Navajo souvenirs and food. It’s also fun to stay a while and see the unique ways people go from state to state and watch all the funny positions people can twist themselves into to be in all 4 states!

“Well, only if you're passing by...”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

A mud pit, at its best. $3 each is not the problem, it is nice to have been there, but do not expect too much. Construction was going on, since a while, but mud all over the place. Restroom definitely a stay-away-from, nothing else there then souvenir booths around the concrete plaza. Stretch it, and you may spend 20 minutes at most.

“A National Embarrassment”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This is NOT a national monument. This is a Navajo money grab. It takes about 2 minutes to see the 4-states marker yet you have to pay $3 each to enter. No park passes honored. Because it was cold there were only 3 vendors open which was ok because we did not come all this way to see tacky, overpriced crafts. There were no interpretation signs or anything of interest here. Worst was the parking lot - a complete mud pit. Could no one even place wooden planks over the mud??? No sidewalks to get to the monument. Absolutely no effort made to make this attractive or worthwhile. The National Parks should take this away from the group running the monument. The only thing national about this is a National Embarassment.
