(4/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
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 was a stop on the California Road where settlers would gather fresh water and repair their wagons. Wagon wheel ruts are still visible in the park. 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.

  • I have lived in or around Hinton, OK most of my life. Seems like Red Rock Canyon has always been taken for granted in my life. Red Rock is a great place to camp, especially for tent campers. Lots of h...  more »

  • 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.
  • Very nice views of red Rock walls , the nature trails were quite overgrown with weeds, one was nicely mowed tho , restrooms decently clean , btw (; manager one of the showers works for free! ! You should try it sometime, . ;D don't expect to catch much besides algae in the pond . Very calm quiet place,enjoyed our family camp out here alot .
  • 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.
  • Great, clean park. Two nice marked trails. Great for taking pets and kids. Everything is really close to the road because it's all crammed in a canyon, but for what they ware working with, the camping areas look nice. This place is great for day trips being an hour from the metro and you can see most everything there is to see in about a day.
  • 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.
