    This is SO worth a detour on any Road Trip you are taking like we did with ours. A totally awesome display of volcanic rock created years ago, and the woman at the visitor center made the experience g...  more »

    If you are on the road traveling anywhere near here, consider checking in and camping here for the night. Full-on RV sites as well as car or tent camping will work, and the area lends itself to sitting outside and enjoying the views. Nice hiking trails will take you to other, less visited rock formations, too.

    This place is outstanding. There really isn't a bad campsite in the entire park. The view of the stars at night will blow your mind. There is some great dirt road riding in and around the park. The volunteers seemed to be a bit lazy, but informative. They are hit or miss and don't judge the park based on them. There are showers and restrooms. Both are nice and well pressurized.

    An ancient ash fall that has weathered out into fantastic hoodoos. Each Campsite is perfect. Small visitor center. Showers. Mogollon peoples occupied the site 900 yrs ago. I see why.

    Quite possibly the strangest, nicest, and neatest state park I've been to. I tried to camp there, but it was full and I had to settle for a day visit. The facilities are top notch, everything was clean, and the campers all seemed considerate.

    This place is absolutely breathtaking! I want to go back very soon and camp. The views are amazing and you can hike al throughout the rocks and find neat stuff.
