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

We were leaving Canyonlands National Park - Island in the Sky and noticed this park was still open. We were so happy to have stopped. We didn't mind paying the entrance fee becuase the state of Utah has provided an excellent place to see another...More

The observation area is nothing less of breathtaking. You will be awe of the view. The sun setting behind the canyon is spectacular with it's colors. This is also a great place to view and photo the milky way.

We visited the park after Canyonlands. There is a separate entrance fee but worth it. The history and how it got its name is very interesting and quite sad. The view of the Colorado River was very nice and not crowded. There's not much to...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.
