Red Rock Canyon State Park, Hinton

Red Rock Canyon State Park is located 1mi south of Hinton in Caddo County, Oklahoma. Before the settlement of Oklahoma, the area was used by Plains Indians as a winter campsite.

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. There are cabins and tent and RV campsites inside the canyon. The park and surrounding area have good opportunities for fall foliage-viewing.

    Beautiful area with great bathroom facilities and nice pool. The rapelling looks so fun if only I knew someone with all the equipment to hook me up. We saw people fishing at a small pond nearby. RV camping sites as well as tent camping.

    This park is really great. It's very clean, which is impressive these days. We only saw a couple pieces of trash on our visit. The trails are moderate, and a lot of fun. Pretty scenery and just a cool all around vibe and atmosphere. We went on a day trip this time, just to do some hiking, but we will be going back to camp soon.

    Great park! Kept up well. Park rangers help with just about anything you need! Great place to camp with family and friends. It is beautiful down there!

    Overly commercialized dump. At Red Rock, there is only one area that is worth seeing. However, that area is overly occupied by white trash. It's like a collection of tents taking over the whole place. BTDubs, there is a swimming pool too. Seriously? So funny. Big time rubbish place. On a positive note, there is a somewhat okay hiking trail on top of the canyon. Finding a way down can be difficult if you are not familiar with the place or if you are just flat out stupid.

    The view and Red Cliff walls are amazing. Awesome hiking trail. Nice pool and fishing area.
