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?

We had really looked forward to coming here so maybe our expectations were too high. Positives - great toilets and visitors centre and there's a snack cafe outside serving cold drinks, snacks, wraps etc. Good hike to Bighorn Overlook trail. Negatives - the big potash...More

Was not planning on stopping but two different couples were raving about it so we stopped on way back to Moab from Canyonlands. Well worth the few extra miles drive. Beautiful!

Dead Horse Point is an iconic spot that needs no introduction. It is the stuff that dreams are made of and memories are anchored on....... Well worth the drive to reach and walk to! Pure peace and quiet!

Epic views coupled with sunrises and sunsets make this a must see. Start at the Visitor Center to understand the park layout, take the paved trail around the rim for an hour. If that is all you have time for it will worth it. Then...More

Great trails. And the view from Dead Horse Point is vast and spectacular. Less crowded than the Arches.

...a beautiful overlook and a solid 4.5 mile hike around the rim. While there is not the high level of things to do, as with their neighbors, Arches and Canyonlands , it is as beautiful and more serene

We combined our visit to this park with the Canyon Lands Park as they are close by. Very nice facilities, beautiful views, hiking, off road trails for 4 wheel vehicles and bikes. $15.00 to get in but discount for seniors! Worth a stop for sure.

On the way to visiting the northern part of Canyonlands National Park we saw a turn-off for a Utah State Park named Dead Horse Point. Thankfully, we had a guide book that described it, or we might have missed it. The highlight of Canyonlands is...More

The views are spectacular and worth the stop even if you go to Arches and Canyonlands. The paved paths make it easy to enjoy the view. We also went on a hike but the trail was poorly marked. This was not too big a deal...More

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

Yes. However we have a 4th grader and applied for the free park pass that gives you access to all state and national parks. W live in Colorado but I believe this is a national program "Every Kid in a Park"
