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?

Dead Horse Point is the areas best kept secret! We love hiking all along the rim! It's rarely crowded and it's the perfect place to go when the surrounding parks are busy! The views here are spectacular all along the rim!

There a series of Trails that go from 1 to 9 miles, so it's great for all ages and levels. Our kids started doing this trail when then were on their Strider bikes. There are also paved hiking trails and a small nature center. It's a good picnic area and they have a food truck with some ice cream. It... More

We also camped for two nights at the state park campground. It was hard to get a reservation - we were on the waiting list, but probably the best... More

Glad we included seeing Dead Horse after Arches National Park. It was different landscape but very dramatic seeing how the river cut the canyon. Views from the overlook were spectacular.

Utah is an amazing state...so diverse. Hopefully, it will stay that way. This park has amazing views...the visitor center is informative and there is even a coffee bar outside. Definitely worth the drive up.

Although not a National Park. We were impressed! Loved that we could take our dogs (yes...we Always clean up)....misty rain kept some people away, but it did not last long. Would visit again
