Moab Utah - Dead Horse Point

Anyone headed West - Consider Moab, UT and Dead Horse Point State Park. Incredible views, unbelievable dark sky views of the Milky Way at night, great Jeep Trails...

We didn’t stay in Dead Horse Point, but we did go visit while in Moab. You’re absolutely right on all points. Absolutely beautiful!

Absolutely agree! We were there in March and, not being Jeep people, did not know it was Jeep Safari week. Hundreds of Wranglers every where! We were lucky to get a spot at Spanish Trail RV park having called the day before for reservations. Of course you must do the nearby Nat'l Parks, Arches and Canyonlands too. Pictures are of Arches, Canyonlands and Deadhorse Point SP.

We found Archview RV Resort, on the north side of Moab to be convenient. It is right at the intersection of US Highway 191 and Utah 313 (which goes to Dead Horse State Park and Canyonlands National Park). It is convenient to the Arches National Park entrance and close to town without having to be in the crowds all the time.

When we were last there, I was able to watch Venus rise behind one of the arches on the horizon. At first, I thought it was a campfire just in front of the horizon. Then a minute or two later, it got brighter and brighter. I could finally see the arch around the light, then the light appeared directly above it. It was amazing. I didn't ever figure out which arch it was...

The whole area is spectacular!

I agree. The "road" from the top of the state park down into the canyon is fun, but not for timid drivers.

We go there all the time. Like to stay at Goose Island Campground just outside Moab. Looks like Shafer Trail you were on going down to White Rim Trail. Very fun but not for the faint of heart : )

Smile GORGEOUS!!!

I was in Moab in 1968 when my Aunt and Uncle owned The Trading Post. I was 17 and it was the first time I saw Dead Horse Point. The view took my breath away!!! God is the greatest artist and sculptor!!
I returned there during a family reunion in Grand Junction, CO in 1993 and again on a 77-day motorhome trip with my dad in 2010. Still the most incredible sight I have ever seen and I would go back in a heartbeat.

We were there in 2013 (but just to visit, not camp). I would say that it rivals Grand Canyon for grandeur and views. The nice thing is that though visited by lots of people it doesn't have the volume of people that the Grand Canyon does. I want to go back for a longer stay to explore the country more just relax. It was very rainy and stormy the whole time except when went into the Canyonlands Overlook and Dead Horse Point when the clouds parted and the rays of sunlight lit up the topography with a kaleidoscope of color and light that was completely breathtaking.
