Bluff is a small town with a big heart with 300 residents located in the San Juan River Valley in the southeastern corner of Utah.

Located along U.S. Highway 191, Bluff is bordered on the south by the San Juan River and the Navajo Nation, verdant farmland to the east and vast panoramic landscapes to the west. To the north, 300-foot sandstone bluffs, which were the inspiration for the town's name, are a dominant visual element serving as a dramatic backdrop for the community.

Bluff is one of those hidden gems that has accommodations for everyone, incredible places to eat, artists to admire, a living museum, and trading posts. Bluff offers everything you need to have an incredible desert escape.

  • We stopped in after doing the hole-in-the rock road and trail in our Jeep. It was great to learn about the history of the pioneers and the terrain they traversed with wagons. The volunteers were so friendly and knowledgeable. The movies were really good, and I liked the cabins and stories of the pioneers. The ice cream and cookies were fantastic! It is well worth a visit to learn about the pioneers. Special thanks to Tim and Sheri for the special visit with our baby!
  • You must stop. It's free, but it has a wonderful history presentation that is engaging, and then plenty of things built up to explore. The kids had a great time, and our six year old LOVED being and to run, explore, and play. We even played hide and seek around the cabins. Check out the bake shop. Their lemon zucchini cookies were to die for. Everyone was so friendly.
