Do you enjoy gazing at the starry heavens above? If so, you’re in luck! Utah has ten International Dark Sky Parks — more than any other state in the country. To receive the designation, the International Dark Sky Association must determine that the park has, “exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and nocturnal environment.” In other words — at these parks, you’ll basically be able to see tons of stars. While all ten are certainly worthy of long nights of star-gazing, here’s one of our favorites.
The other nine International Dark Sky Parks in Utah are:
Antelope Island State Park
Capitol Reef National Park
Cedar Breaks National Monument
Dead Horse Point State Park
Goblin Valley State Park
Hovenweep National Monument
Natural Bridges National Monument
North Fork Park Ogden Valley
Steinaker State Park
Which of these parks have you visited at night?
