Adventure Show Adventure Show

Where the true west of myth and legend is alive today. Free from the distractions of metropolitan and urban life, the relaxing lifestyle in our charming towns and villages offers the perfect vacation, residential, or business environment.

We are located in the Four Corners region of the southwest United States. This is the heart of the Colorado Plateau with the textbook geology that created the breathtaking canyons and majestic mountains of Canyon Country. San Juan County provides a perfect, centralized base of travel to the world renowned features that surround us. National Parks and Monuments, including the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Canyonlands, Arches, Lake Powell, Natural Bridges, Hovenweep, and Mesa Verde are all within Canyon Country or easy driving distance. State parks include Edge of the Cedars Museum and the great Goosenecks of the San Juan River. All of this and more is easily visited from our excellent selection of motels, lodges, RV parks, campgrounds, and resorts. Fine dining as well as family restaurants complement the visitor experience.

Cultural and natural history experiences abound in Canyon Country. Edge of the Cedars State Park & Museum highlights the Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) culture with the largest display of artifacts in the Four Corners. Newspaper Rock Recreation Site offers a large petroglyph panel. Cowboy and Mormon history add color to the county's foundation as do Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and Ute artisans whose work is available at local trading posts and galleries. Our annual crafts fairs, rodeos, ATV Safari, and the International Balloon Festival add to San Juan County's sense of excitement and adventure. Enjoy river rafting with an excellent guide, jeep into hidden canyons and across mountain ridges, hike, bike, 4-wheel, and ATV into and through Utah's Canyon Country for the vacation of a lifetime! With 9,000 feet of elevation change - almost 2 miles between 3,700 feet and 12,600 feet - from red rock canyons to alpine splendor, San Juan County has it all!

Whether seeking the perfect, relaxing, and informative vacation, an ideal place to retire, or excellent market location for your new or existing business, we truly offer a varied selection of venues! Affordable housing, property, and real estate coupled with good schools, college, and university make San Juan County in Utah's Canyon Country your dream environment!
