Newspaper Rock is located near Canyonlands National Park. The Monument is right next to Utah Route 211, 24 miles northwest of Monticello on the main road into the Needles section of Canyon lands National Park. It is a large cliff which is covered with petroglyphs and pictographs from three different periods. This is also one of the few petroglyph sites that is so easily accessible and can be viewed and that photographed at close range.

Entrance is free. The park is open 24 hours a day, year round; camping facilities available.
