Pretty state park.

Only stopped for a few minutes while leaving Canyonlands. Wasn't sure if it was worth the $10 just to see the view point but maybe if we had stayed longer it would have been.

This is a great place to stop and bike or hike in the area. The bike trails are well kept up and fun to ride. The walk along the edge offers great views from every angle and is easy for any age group. Has nice visitor center for those with extra time to learn more about the area and some... More

We drove out on the way to Canyonlands. It's easy to get to (you take the same main road as you would to go to Island in the Sky visitor center) with beautiful scenery along the way. It's $10 per vehicle (up to 8 people). There's a ~2 mile hike that we didn't do that supposedly offers great views. We... More

Dead Horse Point offers gorgeous views over Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park. There is a safe pathway along the canyon rim to take incredible photos.

If you are in the Moab, UT area you should make a special effort to visit this state park. The views are absolutely spectacular of the Colorado River and surrounding canyons. This is a state park that requires an entrance but there are discounts for children and seniors. Even if you pay the full fee it is well worth the... More

I have seen pictures of this park on Pinterest and other sites so I knew then I had to see it for myself. So glad I did. Anyone can enjoy this view so you can drive right to it. 300 Million years of erosion is hard to believe. Hope you enjoy my pictures

After visiting Canyonlands National Park, we drove to Dead Horse State Park where we saw spectacular views of the Colorado River below. We also saw the settling pools for the potash plants which was an amazing sight. You do have to pay a fee to enter Dead Horse State Park, but it is well worth it to visit this special... More

This is a place you really need to experience. The views are spectacular. You stand high above the Colorado and look down on it as it wanders through the valley below. There are more tourists here than in many other places in Canyonlands, but it's a must see.

Well worth the added expense and time to head out to the main viewpoint. You can see down into the canyon and trace the gravel road accessible only via 4WD. Take a stroll around the rim walks and ponder the enormity of the canyon.

we did not even know about Dead Horse Point until we visited Canyonlands Park, but we are so glad we visited. It is a separate park so you must pay another park fee, but it is worth it. we really must support our treasured parks to keep them viable. The fee was not much. the history of this point is...
