Newspaper Rock

Newspaper Rock is an impressive petroglyph site located alongIndian Creek in Southeastern Utah. This panel displays multiple periods of rock art from cultures dating to 1500 years ago to this century. The older art is attributed to the ancient Puebloan people who inhabited this region for approximately two thousand years, from 100 B.C. to 1540 A.D.. The more recent art (lighter in color) is attributed to the Ute people who still live in the Four Corners area. This day-use site has toilet facilities and ample paved parking, including pull through sites for larger vehicles and RVs.
