From the prominence of Dead Horse Point, 2,000 feet above a gooseneck in the Colorado River, an ever changing landscape unfurls. Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water and wind creating a visual masterpiece. Plants and animals surviving on the edge of existence face many challenges of extreme conditions within this high desert environment. Stories of ancient hunters, resting along the cliff tops while knapping chert in preparation for the next hunt, and cowboys of the late 1800's, chasing wild mustangs onto Dead Horse Point, using the narrow neck to block off the natural corral . What story will you discover on your visit to Dead Horse Point State Park?

Arches and Canyonlands are the big names, but this state park is worth a stop in the area to see some stunning views.

This is a glorious place to see spectacular views and enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets. We were lucky enough to camp nearby. Don't miss this Park if you are in the area.

I did enjoy visiting the Park, it's a long trail yo make it to the Dead Horse Point. Nice colors early in the Morning.

Some of the best scenery we’ve ever seen. We kept having to stop to take more pictures. It’s about 42 miles from Moab and the miles just flew by with all there is to see. We were glad we visited during November as it wasn’t...More

This is a wonderful lookout over Canyonlands. The roads have all been re-surfaced so it was nice drive. Seems like everyone sort of goes the same route as we kept running into a charming couple from Italy. A really good hiker could probably do some...More

We went to Dead Horse bright and early to catch the sunrise. This is a real popular thing to do, and well worth it.

This state park sits just outside of Canyonlands and is a must do. Different views and wonderful walking trail.

Not sure that it's worth the $15 entrance fee, but we arrived just before sunset and the views were magnificent. Many great movies have been filmed at the park.

Well worth going beyond the view point and walking along the paths to view the river and explore. Great for sunrise and sunset photography

One afternoon in Dead Horse. Be warned, there’s an oil plant at the entrance and within the park, there is a fertiliser distillation plant. Deeply disappointing environment-wise. Beautiful if you turn your head and camera... More

Its going to be between Moab and Bryce. They are different. Moab has Arches, Colorado river . Bryce has the Hoo Doos and beautiful scenery. Both are great for hiking or just short walk views.

Usually campsites are relatively easy to come by. A little harder to book are the yurts. The later in the fall you come the more available. This is an amazing park and area, have fun
