So we went out to watch the sunset. $20 for admission for an hour, though the pass is good for two days. Not all that much to do out there, except go to the overlook. More like a $10 value. Also, very disappointed the natural...More

Good place to view a large canyon. Although I visited on a cloudy day, the view and color was unusual enough to make it interesting.

There is a Utah Geotour geocache at the Dead Horse Point State Park sign on the way in to the park. We thought the views here were amazing! If you visit the nearby National Parks, make sure to visit here as well.

This is one of the best kept secrets of the Red Rock Canyon Type of Parks. It is so beautiful it looks like it should be in the NPS. Definetly worth the drive out there if you are in Arches or Canyonlands Area.

Nice views high above the river, with speculator vistas unfolding. There is a Visitor Center with facilities. There is a small fee, but , how else are they going to keep these areas open and the facilities clean? Acessable by any auto.

If you’re driving to Canyonlands NP. You must take a very short detour to drive out to Dead Horse State Park. This is the prettiest State Park in Utah... and maybe the United States. The road to Canyonlands is a dead end... you pass the...More

Just ignore the neon-colored uranium holding pond to the east. Otherwise the views are pure Colorado R. "canyon country."
