Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands is the largest national park in Utah. It is formed by currents and tributaries of the Green and Colorado rivers. In this park are those very breathtaking deep canyons that pass through the entire plateau along with amazing spiers and sandstone cliffs. Here you can walk along winding paths and enjoy the beauty of the park, or drive to the most iconic places. For those who want to stay here for the night and see a stunning sunset, Canyonlands offers some of the quietest campgrounds in the area.
