Goosenecks State Park is 9 mi. n.w. off SR 261. The park's cliff-top overlook offers a panoramic view of the scenic “gooseneck” canyons along the San Juan River. These deep, entrenched loops were carved over time by the silt-laden river. The distance across the goosenecks is 1 mile; the river's course covers 6 miles. At one point the river makes a 3-mile curve around a ridge only 100 yards wide; eventually some of the necks will be breached, creating new natural bridges.
Note: No water, electricity or lighting is provided for campsites within the park. A cliff with a long drop is immediately adjacent to these sites, and there is no barrier.
