Bluff, Utah Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Bluff, in southeastern Utah, is a small town founded by Mormon pioneers in April 1880. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, many of the original structures are still present in town and the bluffs. It is a well-preserved snapshot of western frontier life, showing exactly what it was like to brave the harsh terrain and make a new home in such a remote and foreign place. The first settlers famously carved through rock to make a road for their wagons and cattle just to get here. Today you can still see the fruits of their labor.

Within Bluff's borders there are many lodging and dining options, all locally owned, from cabins and inns to RV parks and BLM campgrounds. There are also a number of local restaurants, a great steakhouse, and several cafes where you can sit and enjoy the peaceful nature of such a beautifully remote place.

What is Bluff close to? Besides the standby Four Corners attractions such as magnificent Monument Valley, Canyonland, Arches, Hovenweep and far more, there's the immediate canyon-riddled Cedar Mesa with its beautiful trails and even Anasazi archaeological sites. You can book tours for all of these areas in town. The area around Bluff is teeming with centuries of undisturbed archaeology. Kiva, prehistoric roads and great houses mark the civilizations that came and went long before the pioneers arrived.

Bluff itself comes alive in January with its annual balloon festival and other, smaller festivals fill out the year with cultural fairs and even a rodeo.

Bluff is on Highway 163/191 about 26 miles south of Blanding and 45 miles northeast of Monument Valley.
