A Utah state park, DHP State park is awesome. The sunset (and sunrise) is truly breathtaking. With very nice facilities, this is a great park to visit in the vicinity of Arches NP.

We were there during the thanksgiving week for Sunrise and sunset and this place is beautiful. It has a very unique overlook and its totally different from canyonlands in case you decide to skip it after seeing canyonlands. In my opinion the view is nicer...More

The entrance costs $15 for a private car, which we thought was a bit too much considering the value for money that the Arches & Canyonlands NP offer. In any case, the views are amazing and I'd recommend spending about 1-1.5 hours there.
We took in Dead Horse Point when staying in Moab visiting Arches and Canyonlands and we were very glad we did. The detour off the road to Island In The Sky seems to take forever, but the view from Dead Horse Point is fantastic.
