General Information

Goosenecks State Park
Copyright: - Utah State Parks & Recreation
Goosenecks State Park
Description - Goosenecks State Park is one of the least developed properties in the Utah State Park system. This primitive site allows visitors to focus on the natural beauty of the site and the remarkable geology created by millions of years of erosion and uplift. From the overlook at this facility visitors can watch the San Juan River meander through five miles of canyon, while moving only one linear mile.

Attractions - The natural beauty is, of course, the main attraction to this site. An overlook into the 1,000-foot chasm of the San Juan River is maintained at Goosenecks State Park with interpretive panels explaining the creation of the canyon. A picnic area, four primitive campsites and vault toilets comprise the facilities. There is no water available on site and no entrance charge for the park.

Recreation - Viewing scenery and photography are the two activities that bring most visitors to Goosenecks State Park. Camping and picnicking are also popular at this site.

Climate - Goosenecks State Park lies at an elevation of 5,000 feet. The climate is arid with less than 15 inches of precipitation per year. Summer days are usually hot with temperatures reaching 90 degrees F or more and nights cool to 65 degrees F. Winter can be very cold and snowfall does occur. Expect daytime highs to reach 55 degrees F and nighttime temperatures to drop below freezing.

Location - This state park lies in southeast Utah, approximately four miles from Utah Highway 261 near Mexican Hat.
