“Nature at its best and busiest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This overlook gives you an idea of the power wind and water can have over time. The GOOSENECKS are in keeping with water's desire to keep its course and are amazing to see. Well worth a look if you are in this area.

“A great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is a superb view of the river as it snakes around several times. It was great to be able to see Monument Valley on the horizon too.

“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is a really neat State Park in southern Utah. From the observation area, you can see the river as it snakes around with large rocky bluffs in between.

“Really special and a stunning view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

This was absolutely breath-taking. The view is absolutely spectacular. Not very much to say besides that. Just go there, enjoy the view and be overwhelmed by it.

“Camp spot to remember”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

The goosnecks, the deep winding canyons carved by the San Juan River in Utah are impressive to look down on. To camp there is very special. Described as a "primitive" campground there is no fee for camping. You can choose a site with a picnic table, trash can and fire ring and a bare tent pad. We pitched out tent so that the cliff looking down on the goosenecks was a mere five metres from our doorway. Wonderful view when we put the chairs out front.
Add to that the quiet and the magnificient stars above and you have a special campsite. The only sound is the quiet rush of the river over rocks far below.
Not much to do there so you will not stay long but well worth a night and it is only a couple of miles off highway 163 which leads south through Monument Valley.

Toilets are vault (pit) toilets but in very good order and there is no water at the site.
