  • Stopped by the park to take in the petroglyph walking tour, but we missed the last one of the season. We did get permission from a ranger to head down and do the self-guided tour even though the park ...  more »

  • Stunning petroglyphs and a story of the gains of western civilization at the expense of native culture and history. That it is inevitable does not make it easy to dismiss. Go see it.  more »

  • Pretty spot. But so windy and also noisy from highway it is difficult to enjoy. I would stop and see the petroglyphs, dip toes in the lake, have a picnic and drive on to another campground.
  • This park is cool. I liked seeing all of the different carvings the Indians made on the rocks there. Super interesting. Haven't gone swimming or hiking there yet, but I sure will as soon as I get the chance to.
  • This was a beautiful and well-kept park that I wanted to like more, but sleeping was very difficult, because the wind was so strong most of the night and the sound of it rushing through the wind-breaks was almost unbelievably loud. Add to that the freight trains passing through seemingly every half hour or so and if that weren't enough, nighttime military training sorties down the gorge. I counted at least two if not three. So in every way it was so great, but sonically, it was like camping on the tarmac of the airport. The host was super helpful and agreeable, and the surroundings are beautiful. I'd pick it as a day use space next time, or plan to go with some expensive sound-cancelling headphones. It's not always windy... so your results may vary.
  • Stunning views from the trails with clean outhouse at the pull through parking area. Watch out for poison oak, and prepare for very high winds.
  • There are several nice trails and some excellent viewpoints in this park.
