“Where the nation intersects”

The Navajo Nation cordially welcomes you to one of our most unique landmarks - The Four Corners. This is the only place in the United States where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. This location is very remote as you will experience when visiting. 

The original marker erected in 1912 was a simple cement pad, but has since been redone in granite and brass. The Visitor Center is open year round, and features a Demonstration Center with Navajo artisans. Navajo vendors sell handmade jewelry, crafts and traditional Navajo foods nearby. 

Picnic tables and self-contained restrooms are available. Services and accommodations are very limited to small cafes, grocery stores and self-service gasoline stations within a 30 mile radius. 

We recommend that you have plenty of water, food, snacks, hand wipes and extra toiletries when visiting. The area is very remote, no running water, no electricity, no telephones.

There aren’t many places where you can park your bum in one state, your legs in another two states and your head on a fourth.... *yes it made for quite a photo!

Feels a bit like it was plonked in the middle of nowhere, but amongst all the rocks and dust is a unique little tourist spot worth checking out, even if it is for the photo or to support the local stalls.

Coming to the monument seems like a thing every American should do, but after coming here, I sit on the fence about it. I thought the monument might be lame, based on the photos, and it was lame. Some how I missed there is a $5 person admission fee. Since the land is "owned" by the Navajo tribe, they do not honor the Eagle Pass.The monument consists of about 50 vendor stalls selling jewelry, pottery and other Native American handmade items; several benches and a disk in the middle so you can stand in four states at one time. We made a special trip to go to the monument. I would not suggest doing that.

A nice little landmark stop if you are driving through the reservation - be aware that there is a small cost and they take cash only. there are a lot of interesting places in the area - but the monument is worth checking off the list if you are nearby.

The monument itself was really quite cool but the surrounding set up was a complete joke. There were 20+ stalls set up for selling knick knacks etc but only maybe 3 of these were open / occupied. It was teeming with rain when we stopped here and the car park area and entrance to the monument was a swamp of sand and muck. Destroyed our shoes.

There was no where to buy food / drink / postcards or mementos and the toilets here are quite possibly the worst I've ever had the displeasure to use. Not quite portaloos, not quite outhouse, somewhere disgusting in between and also don't lock...and the seat is too far from the door to hold closed. All in all a quite harrowing pee experience!

They asked for a donation at the door and we gave $3 in total. If you are not driving by, I would not recommend this place at all. Though in the summer, on a dry and clear day I can see the appeal with all stalls open and a bit more of an atmosphere in the area.

Geeky and cool all at once. How many times in your life can you say you've been standing in four different places at once? Worth stopping by if it's already in your route, but wouldn't go out of the way for it honestly

Really fun stop on the way from Lake Powell to Fort Worth! There weren't a lot of people around since it was a Sunday, but I imagine it can get busy with people taking photos. Some of the shops around are cool, as well as the surrounding views. There are also some cute little towns nearby, like Tec Nos Pos, AZ.

Cool little stop. There's a food truck selling treats, and some restrooms. There's also shops open around the monument where I picked up some postcards and a shot glass. Fun stop, but it is really hot out there in the middle of the desert, and there's lots of people waiting around to take the pictures on the exact same spot. Still worth the stop!

Come on, 4 states at once is cool! Some junky jewelry and touristy stuff. Nezzie's diné had beautiful metal designs done by the husband and the wife inlays turquoise and red coral into his design. Beautiful and unique. Also purchased a great authentic choker from a different vendor along with a talking stick.

There's normally a line for getting pictures, but if you're willing to wait you better make that picture memorable. Also, there's a friendly stray dog running around, so be sure to bring a couple treats with ya! :)

This place is a total buzzkill. It is $5 per person, cash only. Make sure you bring cash because it's a bit out from any ATMs. The monument is stuck within a circle of stalls filled with Native American merchants eager to sell you something to make the trip memorable. It'd be easier and cheaper to circle around the site and take pictures with each state sign.
