State Parks in the Monument Valley/SE Utah Area

Two Utah State Parks are located in the Monument Valley/SE Utah area.

Goosenecks State Park is located on an overlook above gooseneck twists of the San Juan River, 1,000 feet below.

The twists are known as entrenched meanders and are a rare geologic formation.

The park offers viewpoints, a picnic area, primitive camping and vault toilets. No fees are charged and no water is available at the park. The park is located west of Mexican Hat, off Hwy 261.

Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum is located in the town of Blanding. It includes the largest collection of Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) pottery on display in the Four Corners Region, along with numerous other artifacts and photographs.

You can also see the partially-restored ruins of an ancient Puebloan villabe behind the museum.

Festivals, programs and special events are also offered at this state park.
