  • This is an awesome spot! We stopped by for an hour or so, paid the day pass rate for NM state park ($5) and boy, it was worth every penny! Get out, explore around and take in the vast expanse of...  more »
  • Very interesting rock formations and worth the visit. My wife and I wish we had known about the camping, because it looks amazing to camp in the stone formations and be in a dark light environment...  more »
  • I cut out a newspaper article in 1987 about City of Rocks and have wanted to see it ever since. I was not disappointed. We had just left Canyonlands and The Arches in Utah and felt this park easily...  more »
  • Beautiful natural campsites with volcanic rock from 30 million years ago. Amazing sunsets. Park rangers are very nice, helpful, accommodating. Comfort station has hot showers flush toilets and sinks with soap. Great place for tenting RV camping. Hats, sunglasses and sunscreen are highly recommended.
  • This park is awesome! Super fun to walk around, explore, and climb if your daring (just have a descent path before climbing). There are tons of picnic areas, at least a few will be shaded at any time of day. Appropriate for all ages and parking is available right next to all the cool rocks.
  • I hate to promote City of Rocks. This place is a hidden gem. I think I've been here 10 or so times now. One of my and my kids favorites. Very relaxing while at the same time a great place for kids to explore. I walked around the rocks this week remembering my kids climbing when they were younger. Stars amazing at night.
  • This place was a lot of fun and absolutely gorgeous. The camping spots they have are right in the middle of the Rocks which is totally awesome. We spent the entire afternoon just in the middle of the part going around in circles around and around like a little maze a little city that it is. Lot of fun for younger kids.
  • This place is stunning. Fist time being here and I'm completely blown away with the beauty., landscape. Definitely if you can visit is worth the time.
