Moab and Southeastern Utah Sights

Goosenecks State Park

  • Geological Site

Fodor's Review

From the overlook you can peer down upon what geologists claim is the best example of an "entrenched meander" in the world. The river's serpentine course resembles the necks of geese in spectacular 1,000-foot-deep chasms. Although the Goosenecks of the San Juan River is a state park, no facilities other than pit toilets are provided, and no fee is charged. Camping is also free, and there is room for both tents and RVs (up to 30 feet).
