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.
