Some wonderful vistas to see and definitely much different than Arches and Capitol Reef. Day we were there it was extremely windy and made it tough to travel along the edge of the Canyon. Did not go to the Needles area, but hope to in...More

Another fascinating park located near the Arches National Park. It is not very small but we didn't do any long hike but we have just seen the panoramic points along the route.

Hands down one of the most stunning sunsets I’ve seen in my entire life. Canyonlands Nat’l Park definitely ranks high up there on my list of favorites I’ve visited thus far!

This park is very large and has 4 different areas that all require different road access. Island in the Sky area is closest to Moab and has a number of hikes. Good 15 minute hike to Mesa Arch which is another good arch for photos....More

WOW. The vastness and expansive size of the island in the sky area was too much for words. Shafer Point is a must see! The views from here were absolutely breathtaking.

Canyonlands exceeded my expectations and in terms of sheer views I think it's possibly the best park we have seen in our two weeks in the States. Island in the Sky is amazing and the views from Grand View Point and Orange Cliff overlook are...More

Rock formations that will blow you away. Well worth the time to take in this National Park. Bring water and wear a hat. Would also have been good to bring a picnic. We did not.

Most RVs are OK as long as they stay on the paved roads. The park is divided into 4 sections. The only ones I would try to access are Island in the Sky and Needles. I pulled a small trailer into Needles, no problem. While... More
