  • Wonderful walk on privately owned land. The rock formations were incredible and the paths well maintained.  more »
  • You could easily spend a week just exploring every nook and cranny of Panama Rocks! Not only was it fun and educational, but the environment was almost magical! Our 11 year old LOVED climbing all...  more »

  • What a wonderful time we had. The folks were very nice and informative!! It was so amazing to see and go walking through!! I recommend this park for anyone, it's only 3 hours from my house so we're going to be going here quite a bit, so much to explore!! Actually going back in a few weeks with a bunch!! Great time!!!
  • Grew up with this in my backyard, can't believe I was in my 30s before I finally went. What a blast! Such a fun place to explore if you're up for a bit of climbing around, and very friendly staff. One word of warning - the rocks were hard enough to scratch my wedding band pretty badly. If you have jewelry you don't want scratched and you're going to be climbing, leave it at home.
  • Nice motorcycle ride up here today. They weren't technically open but since the owners were there they were letting people in. Cool little place with a mile loop trail and a good bit of caves, crevices and rock formations to play around on. Didn't see a sign when riding up but the admission is $8. They do accept cards and also give a veteran discount. Came here again today 7-26-19 for an even called the America Nature Festival. Lots of local artisans and local farms selling many products. Also had some local wildlife rehab places with animals as well. We will definitely come again next year. Admission was $10 per person.
  • If you just want to look at something amazing and beautiful but not want to be too adventurous, you can simply walk the trail. If you are a bit curious and can manage a few steep steps to climb onto a rock, you can see a little more. If you are fearless and want to climb rocks to the tippy top or suck your gut in to squeeze through a crevice, you will enjoy this place.
  • It’s no wonder this place is so highly rated. Incredibly accessible. You can make it as simple or as strenuous as you want. The whole family can get in on the action. Go. You’ll have fun.
