Dead Horse Point State Park Information
Dead Horse Point State Park is just a couple of miles out of the way from the Island of the Sky District in Canyonlands National Park. And since that area of Canyonlands doesn’t have any campgrounds, that makes Dead Horse Point the closest location with established campsites. Demand soars for the park in peak season partly for the camping, but also for the outstanding views of the labyrinths of canyons below its rim. It also boasts some of the best views of the Colorado River in the area.
