Sand Island Petroglyph Panel is a large panel near Bluff. On the banks of the San Juan River, it is easy to envision this lush area as a gathering place for ancient peoples. The panel is extensive, with literally hundreds of figures and dates from the earliest inhabitants of the area through the Pueblo III period. (AD 1150 to 1350) There are a few more modern inscriptions mixed in as well. Visiting the panel makes a great side trip when passing by. A BLM campground at the panel and boat launch is available for those doing portions of the San Juan River.
Travel west out of Bluff Utah about 3 miles on state highway 191. At mile post 22.1, turn south into the well signed Sand Island Campground. The panel is signed and easy to spot along the cliff band on the north side of the camp ground.
Note: No fee is required if just visiting the panel.
None needed. The panel is visible from where you park.
