  • Lots of really interesting things to look at, the rocks themselves are amazing, the camping area, the visitors center, and the solar outline, are really cool. We always have fun when we go.

  • Love love love this place. Camped here for the night while on a group bike ride. Amazing views of the rock formations and surrounding landscapes. I highly recommend taking a hike on one of the trails - be sure to take water! If you are into photography, this is an excellent place to take pictures as well.
  • Cool rock formations! I would have loved to spend more time there!
  • Seems to attract rough necks who pay no heed to notional site boundaries (at least during Memorial Day weekend). Staff leave promptly at 3:30pm, so nobody to go complain to when other sites are blaring honky tonk music until 3am. Also, note, the winds on the west side of the park were pretty miserable, with who knows what in the dust coming from the mining tailing piles off to the west. We ended up moving to the relative calm of the east side, which fortunately had some good sites when we were there. Definitely a fun place for the kids to scramble around.
  • Awesome state park. Very cool rock formations. Great camp sites.
  • Great hike around the park. Make sure you bring water if hiking in summer like we did! Just a note: the park ONLY accepts cash or check for payment for anything....hiking day pass and visitor's center. The rock formations are gorgeous!
