Gooseneck State Park | Monticello Staycation

Gooseneck State Park | Monticello Staycation

After driving through Valley of the Gods and Moki Dugway, we headed down to Gooseneck State Park.

I'm a little sad that we literally spent maybe 20 minutes here at Gooseneck State Park. We were on a tight schedule see, we needed to be down at Monument Valley for sunset and we were pushing it!

We had just enough time to do a short hike down to the rim.

It was slightly treacherous but the kids loved every moment of it. We just had to hang on to them for dear life as there were cliffs in almost every direction.

If only we had a little bit more time, or a lot of time. You can camp right on the edge, I think it would be super epic. There's only 8 spots and they are first come first serve.

The views really are pretty crazy. I'm not sure how people get photos of the whole thing...they must be right on the edge. I felt like we were much too close to the edge already.

The photos are blurry, time was of the essence, but check out the mountain and the V shapes in them. I'm not sure what they are called, but it was unreal.

Tip your hat to Mexican Hat too.

Up next, Monument Valley!

  • Watch out for cows on the road!
  • Be sure to pay if no one is there.
  • Camping is first come first serve. There are no trees or any kind of shelter nearby...so I imagine it gets pretty windy.
  • Bathrooms
