    Great and unique spot in USA
    The only place in the USA where you can be in four states at once. Both times we were there a line existed to wait one's turn. But both times the line moves pretty fast and it takes less than 10 minutes. There's a raised platform nearby to make pictures of the moment easy. Some people lay down on the spot, some families join hands around the spot. Surrounding the monument are some great Native American entrepreneurs selling items and they are worth a look. We've bought nice things there and sometimes cheaper there than some regular tourist stores. Bathrooms available but not sure about drinks or snacks. Scenery is nice too (I like the desert).

    A Tourist Trap, but a Fun One
    We drove to Four Corners Monument because we were only an hour away after visiting Mesa Verde National Park. It seemed foolish to miss the opportunity when we were so close. I’m glad we went, but just be prepared that it is a bit of a tourist trap. And if you’re ok with that, then go. I was and wanted to say I had seen the site. It costs $8 per person and the four of us were there 45 minutes tops. And we did it all and slowly. The Four Corners Monument is a large circle on the pavement showing where AZ, UT, CO, and NM meet. You can stand (or lay) on the monument in a variety of ways to touch all four states at once. It wasn’t crowded today when we were there, but there is a sign that states on crowded days, you are limited to only 3 photos per group. That could be frustrating after spending $8 per person! Surrounding the monument is a flea market with booths manned by local artists - gorgeous handmade pottery and jewelry. There’s also arrowheads and the usual t-shirts, magnets, Christmas ornaments, etc, all proclaiming “Four Corners.” It was 102 degrees there today and there is no shade, so hydrate!!

    Interesting historical monument.
    If you are like me and want to be in more places than one at the same time, this is the place. You can stand in four states at the same time. With that said, it is a bit “out of the way” and basically in the middle of nowhere. But, I enjoyed our short visit. When we visited on a Sunday morning, there were a few vendors available with some interesting items, especially pottery and jewelry. Restrooms were limited to “port-a-potties”.

    NM,CO,Az, UT oh my
    Check that off the list of things to see! Not many places you can be in 4 states at once! Plenty of vendors around the monument selling a lot of Native American jewelry and art. $8 a person, really not much else to do so does not take long.

    Classic road trip destination
    Awesome road trip destination. We are so glad we ignored the many negative reviews and made the journey. The drive there is through classic southwest scenery and the sense of standing in the only place in the US where four states touch is very cool. This is as classic a road trip destination as you’ll ever find. The Native American jewelry booths on site are added bonus. We spent less than 30 minutes there but agreed it was an amazing experience. Yes, it’s hot, dry and dusty - this is the American southwest!!! Quench those doubts and just do it! If you have the time and a desire to wander roads less traveled, be sure to journey on to Monument Valley.

    Interesting attraction but its interest is purely a novelty
    After going here I determined this more of a novelty to go see this than it is an destination. It was nice to do it and say we could be in 4 states with a few steps. To me this is a once and done activity and would not be a repeat destination. The site is on the Navajo reservation and cost $8/person which is reasonable. I appreciated the primitive location and facilities, as it added an authentic aire to it. The site is surrounded by buildings selling Navajo goods which was good for us because we wanted to take some Navajo crafts back home and that was the perfect spot to get just that. Navajos are very friendly people and I highly respect their culture and way of living. Their ability to create crafts is amazing. So having them on this site was a pleasure. Go do this attraction but to us it was a once and done no real need to return.

    A Unique Place
    After we explored Meza Verda National Park we drove 1.5 hours to reach this unique place where 4 states meet. Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. The fee to enter is $8.00 there’s also lots of merchandise to purchase. At the center is the geologic marker where the 4 states meet. The 3 corners were being administered by the Navajo while one corner by the Ute Indian. It’s definitely a cool place to see.

    Fun, if you're in the area
    While visiting Mesa Verde we realized the Four Corners was less than an hour away - so, hey, why not check it out. Glad we did. It was a fun spot to stand in 4 places at once. The had several vendors around, however it was not crowded. The vendors were selling turquoise and other jewelry, t-shirts, and the usual touristy things. I would also definitely recommend the fry bread and/or navajo tacos - yummy! I think it's one of those places everyone should visit at some point in their life as it's unique and a good learning experience for kids (and adults as well).

    In the middle of nowhere, but this is a must see.
    This is in the middle of nowhere, we thought there was a little town here, but it is worth visiting. Lots of people of course, lining up to take photos. Some vendors selling usual beads, etc. The caps are quite expensive though. Great to have a limb in each of the four States. Glad we made the stop.

    Nice place, beware the toilets
    We enjoyed visiting this monument, took lots of photos, went early in the morning. You have to pay 8 dollars each to enter which is very expensive for what it is, but you are only going to do it once. DONT USE the toilets they are disgusting you could smell them before opening the door they haven't been cleaned in months and the money they charge to get in you'd think they could at least clean the toilets. Whilst we were their the indians started setting up their stalls to sell their goods which was nice. The toilet situation spoilt it a little bit.

This is very much a tourist trap but is primarily means for vendors to sell their wares. Not sure I would have gone out of my way to visit except it was on route to our next destination.

We decided to go here as it sounded fun(we’ve done the centre of New Zealand ) and as geocachers we wanted to get a geocache in all 4 states. Not sure that we did as the question was quite puzzling. Yes it’s a bit of a rip off but it’s a novelty and you don’t have to buy anything from the stalls. The surrounding desert is impressive and I say good luck to the native Americans getting a bit of cash from their neighbours.!

It was a fun stop, being able to say that I was in four places at once, but that's the only draw. I was there during a very quiet time (late afternoon), so I only had to wait for a couple of families to take pictures before me. The monument is lined with vendor booths.

Save your money. The couple working the booth were rude. I tried to ask a question and the only reply was ‘giver me your card’. We left and would not recommend this stop. 9.00/person to walk around a man made monument that indicates four states join together.

Wow! This place should not be called four corners - it should be called 24 booths flea market. Yes, there's a small piece of unusual with the monument and the four states, but otherwise, this is a joke. Don't waste your money.

A very unique experience although it’s not a close place to much of anything. Was worth the trip for me but not sure this is for everyone.

There's not much to see but a truly rare experience. How often do you get to stand in for state at once? It was a fun little quick stop that held great symbolism. It told the story Navajo and Ute in the area.

This place is incredible. Being able to move between four US states is crazy interesting. Being a bit of a geography nerd, I was like a kid at Christmas here.

The place is clean, accessible, and the flags are all perfect. There are also souvenir shops dotted around the perifery which are also nice (the vendors aren't at all pushy, and the prices are all marked... Unlike many other places on the reservation).

The entry fee for this attraction is very reasonable at 8 USD per person. You can even pay on card at the entry booth. The only thing I'd note is that you cannot use your America the Beautiful national park pass.

Would 100% recommend if you're passing.

We were disappointed with our short side trip here. There is a poorly marked admission booth covered with burglar bars, so sign saying stop here. So we proceeded to the main plaza with the ridiculous $16 admission fee in hand, only to be chased down by a rude security guard who demanded we go back to the barred off booth and pay. When we returned, a hand came out between the bars to take our money. We then parked in an unmarked space that appeared to be several spaces down from the handicapped parking area, only to be harassed by the same guard who insisted the entire row was handicapped. So we moved and the guard parked in the space she said was handicapped. The plaza itself was unremarkable with the four corners marker and an unfriendly sign that said Limit 3 Photos. There were also a handful of uninviting trinket vendors we had no interest in, and some dusty port-a-potties. Save your $8 a person for something better.

This is how bad I think this place is. I haven't been there for years but ran across this review page today and was still disgusted enough to post a comment all these years later.

At that time, they charged $20 per car. I came to the window and paid for me and my in-laws in the car immediately behind us. She never mentioned it to them and took their $20 as well, so we paid $60 in total. There were no toilets. The road was horrible. When we got inside it was nothing more than a flea market. They were supposedly selling hand crafted items but all but one booth had "Made in China" tags all over the items.

I've been to a lot of places. Some better than others. I expect the bad with the good and that doesn't even bother me. What bothered me was that I felt taken...like they we're literally playing a shell game and stealing my money.

Do yourself a favor and don't go.
