  • Didn't know what to expect. The formation are great, rock climbers delight and if you have kids with you they will love running and climing also. You can spend an hour or a week. We loved it! We didn'...  read more »

  • The guys here were very helpful. Great visitor center. I was able to pick up a "hiking stick" badge for my son's collection here, which was great!
  • remote, beautiful, a lot of history (geological and cultural). great trails and rock scrambles
  • My first visit was in 2007 but I did not venture very far into the park. But in 2008 I scouted both the City of Rocks Preserve and the mountains to the west. In 2011 I had just read James Redfields Celestine Prophecy and I really began to connect with the entire area, even exploring the regions to the north. Then back again in 2014 to explore the Raft River Mountains to the south. I have made this visit my final move into the City of Rocks locale in 2015. By permanently living in the area I can now enjoy it all year around. Thank you to all of the National Parks employees for making this the cleanest park I have visited in the U.S. and Canada.
  • The visitor center is great.
  • I have always been a Naturalist and a Rock Hound and finding the City of Rocks was a dream come true. Upon arrival my very first time at City Of Rocks National Preserve i felt as if i had been drawn there by the Rock Hound gods from far away and i felt at home. I hiked the entire Preserve from end to end as if I was an Explorer of the old days. Once I had covered the whole Park on foot which took several weeks, I was smitten and I came back each year to explore the whole area on foot again and again. I have visited many places in many Countries, but nothing else on earth can begin to match the City of Rocks National Preserve. You have to experience it to believe it. I will be coming back.
