From here you can access the trail to Church Rock or Pyramid Rock. The trail to Church Rock is amazing. Spectacular views and a really nice trail.

For $20 you get up to 50amp electric and water hookups. Two dump stations are on property. We stayed in winter so it wasn't crowded at all. We made no reservations, but just showed up. The camp host came to us a couple hours later....More

Great get away from the glitz of Vegas. This is natural beauty and peace. Beware - when you drive the scenic loop it dumps you outside the park.

These rock formations are absolutely beautiful -- we just drove the road, not hiked the park. There are lots of places to pull over and take pictures, or just take in nature. The red coloring is spectacular. We just returned from the Andes Mountains in...More

We really liked this park but can understand why others could be frustrated. We arrived after 4:00 when the office is closed but the Ranger stopped by, we paid and she gave us not only the key to the bathroom but also a brochure about...More
