We have finished paving Highway 313 through Dead Horse Point State Park and will finish installing delineators and signs before mid-July. The Kayenta Campground is reservable with the exception of July 9th through July 20th when we will be paving that loop.
The road is now slightly wider and much safer than it was before.

Night Sky Viewing:
Dead Horse Point State Park officially closes at 10:00 pm. While the park is recognized as an International Dark Sky Park and our night sky viewing is phenomenal, day use fees only extend to this closure time. We ask that visitors respect this closure by visiting other areas for night sky viewing if they intend to be out beyond this time. It is a perk of having a camping reservation that those staying in the campgrounds or yurts have access to the park beyond these hours. Joining a ranger-led activity or joining company with a special use permit are also ways of experiencing the night skies beyond these hours.

Dead Horse Point State Park has miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. The nature of this landscape makes marking trails difficult so they can be defined as “primitive trails.” Park rangers use piles of rocks called cairns, lines of rocks like curbs, and wood to mark trails. Because of this, we ask that visitors refrain from moving rocks or wood in any way along our trails. Stacking your own cairns or knocking them down confuses visitors, resulting in social trails and damage to fragile soils.
