The park is now known as Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park, a 4,027-acre camping park (open year-round) with 73,640 feet of freshwater shoreline at the foot of Dry Falls. Dry Falls is one of the great geological wonders of North America. The hexagonal shaped stone Vista House still stands, offering an excellent lookout point of the spectacular geological formations. Today, visitors may obtain information about the area at the Dry Falls Interpretive Center. These prehistoric falls were composed of five sweeping horseshoes, with a total perimeter of almost three miles. The basin was 417 ft. deep -possibly the world’s greatest waterfall. The name is obviously appropriate.
As the road winds south from the Vista House down many horseshoe curves, the canyon ahead may be seen at various angles.
