Four Corners Monument

Four Corners Monument is the only place in the United States where you can be in four states at once: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.

Ever want to be in two places at once? Try being in four places at once. Four Corners Monument is the only place in the United States where four states intersect: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. You can stand on that spot and truly be in four states at one time.

History & Nature

For years, territorial squabbling between Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah kept the states' borders in flux. In 1912, when the dust settled and the final lines were drawn, a cement pad was built on-site to officially mark the spot where the states came together. The cement pad has since been upgraded to a brass and granite designation marking the "four corners."

Located within the Colorado Plateau, the site is near many parks and preserves renowned for their natural beauty, including Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.

Things To Do

The Four Corners Monument Visitor Center is open year-round, playing host to a variety of Navajo cultural demonstrations, as well as vendors selling handmade Navajo jewelry, crafts and food. Or take a break during your Arizona road trip at one of the many picnic tables on-site.

And don’t forget to get your picture taken while standing in four places at once before you leave!

Hotels, Lodging & Camping

Camping is the way to stay if you want to be close to the monument. You'll find several campgrounds located nearby, some of which require reservations and/or daily permits, so you'll want to plan ahead.
