“Please be advised that the Dead Horse Point State Park management team plans to have the road into the Moenkopi Yurt area and the adjacent overflow mountain bike parking area paved in 2020. Unfortunately, we do not know when this construction will take place because it is a smaller project and will be completed at the convenience of the contracted construction company. We will do everything in our power as a management team to minimize the impacts for visitors staying in the Moenkopi Yurts. We would encourage you to make reservations for the Wingate Yurts (yurt 6-9) if you do not want to chance having your vacation conflict with construction work. If your reservation is going to be impacted by this construction project you will be notified by park management as soon as we have the construction dates on the calendar. This project will not impact access to any other areas of the park. Thank you for choosing Dead Horse Point State Park for your next adventure.”
