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?

This state park, costing $15 to enter, was much less crowded than the nearby National Park. It has a beautiful visitor center which had a local artist exhibit. The hikes were excellent, and the views were something you might see in National Geographic.

We stopped here after spending the day at Arches, and it was the perfect place to watch the sunset. The views are breathtaking from the rim. It's easy to drive to the beautiful lookout points. We didn't hike the trails, but I'd love to return...More

Be sure to get a local guide. Makes the visit more meaningful. Driving thru there you will see great scenery, but knowing what you are seeing is very important.

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"
