The canyon has the only remaining site of native Caddo maple trees.Park activities include rappelling down the canyon, walking on nature trails, hiking on an rocky trail, and fishing. There are picnic areas and group picnic shelters, a playground, a swimming pool and bathhouse, and a group camp area, which includes bunkhouses and a kitchen/dining hall.

What a pleasure to return to this park and find it just as perfect as our last visit. We visited in a motorhome and parked in one of the pull-thru spots with water and electric. We are full-time RVers... read more »

The drive in is so fun. Careful not to miss the entrance to the park. It's very easy to drive right past as the sign is not close enough to the road. The only downfall is they charge for showers. Othe... read more »
Dan should go back to Nazi Germany. Was the park not up to your standards, Dan tha man? Perhaps next time, one of your boyfriends can come along. (and across)
Nice park with camping sites and lots trails. You can stay in cabins and A frame houses. We went during the cold season so only a couple of people were camping but my parents use to bring me here when I was young. Lots of remote places and repelling off the sides of the rock.
The trails seemed to have been moved off is the red rock and onto a grassy bush hogged trail. It doesn't allow you to see the beauty of the rock. You get a better view walking down the park road or go exploring on your own. Grass was cut and maintained, but there was trash on the ground at almost every campsite. With all that said, I did enjoy hanging my hammock up under the huge old trees and looking at the red rock by day and stars by night.
Small, only there for an afternoon. But enjoyed a short hike and we enjoyed their fantastic pool. No day use fee for the park. Great day trip.
Oh my gosh this place was awesome. We stayed one night in June 2014 on a cross country trip. It was magical. After you pass the guard shack, the road meanders down into a rock wall lined valley of sorts, like nothing I've ever seen before. The red rock walls were absolutely amazing. We parked the camper and immediately started exploring. We hated leaving this place and should've stayed a few more nights. A definite must see. You will not be disappointed. We'll probably never go again because we live in North Carolina but we will never forget it.
