Cute rock formation. Saw it on our way to Nambe Falls. I took pictures as we drove by. You can stop and look because there's a place to pull off safely.

If you need a driving break, take the Camel Rock Rd. exit, mosey to the rest area, and take a stroll up the path. Yep, it's a rock that looks like a camel. There's also a gas station on the opposite side of the highway...More

We must have seen this rock 100s of times on our travels. It's a one of a kind experience, if only for a moment as you motor on your way to or from the many attractions of Northern New Mexico.

Stopped by as we were heading north on a road trip for only a few minutes. Can see from either side of the highway. Wouldn't go out of the way to see it but since we were going by we did.

This astonishing likeness to a camel can be seen from US 84 just a few miles north of Santa Fe. In late 2016 the "nose" broke off and there was a promise to put it back. As of May 8 it was still broken, but,...More

After a couple of days in Santa Fe, we just wanted to take a couple of hours and drive out into the country. Now Camel Rock will not require a lot of time... and you won't see a lot. But it is a break... get...More

This monument on the Tesuke Pueblo is located directly across from the pueblo's casino. It is a natural rock formation that is a dead ringer for its namesake--a camel. There is a viewing area that travelers can use to take photos, but there is no...More

This was a fun place to stop and stretch our legs, since it really does look like a camel. We were confused by the sign, which was interesting but seemingly irrelevant. It talked about the figurines made by Native Americans, but did not connect the...More

There is no second camel. The nose fell off very recently. Thought to be due to erosion over time.
