Red Rock Canyon State Park and Ricardo Campground. We left Kingman Arizona and were headed for Modesto CA to visit relatives and wondered were we could stay somewhere in between. After traveling road weary and ugly I-40 this campground was a very pleasant surprise. Did a little one mile hike, had a campfire with a great quiet star filled night...

This place makes wonderful photos. Some of the rock formations look like people, mushrooms, tables, sandwiches, it's like a mini, closer by version of places in Arizona and Utah. We just stopped here as part of a day trip that also included the Rosamond cat zoo. Go on the trail near the highway it's well worth it and an easy...

This place is very close to Las Vegas , just 17 miles ! And it is beautiful! You can drive the 13 mile loop for a quick view or park and hike. You can see people climbing, hiking, jogging , etc very inviting!! Next time I will definitely hike

This campground is beautiful, the rocks and formations around are just picture perfect. Kids had a blast climbing them and exploring all the nature around, beautiful nature trails and the Ranger at base camp is knowledgeable and helpful, you can even buy firewood ($8.00) if you forgot to bring some! During the day weather was perfect but at night it...

This was our second visit. Pictires don't do this place justice. It is breathtaking! Super cheap, $7 per car. We went close to sunset and it was beautiful! !! You drive thru at your own pace. Several places to stop for photo ops. Will go back again!!

If you're looking for a typical RV park with full hook-ups, this is not the place for you. If, however, you're prepared to do a day or two of dry camping, then this campground will be a great place for you. Stunning backdrops, interesting colors in the surrounding rock formations. Quiet, secluded, clean. The spots are not all super level...

This was our first stop on a 5 week campervan trip. We only stayed one night. It was the Labor Day weekend and it was still not fl. The visitor centre wasn't open. The sites are amongst the canyon walls which was scenic and fun (and in the shade), semi-private. Only basic vault toilets. $25 a night which was cheaper...

This place is absolutely stunning. There are beautiful geological formations, like outdoor stalactites and stalagmites which surround the canyon walls. There is a beautiful desert area in the middle with nature trails and a dessert tortoise area by the visitor center. We visited in March and so there were several wild flowers in bloom. We also arrived on a weekday...

The rock formations are stunning in the right light! The campgrounds are nice and pretty large but some are not very level. Water is available near most of the sites but you will need a lot of hose or fill up as you enter the park. Dump station is closed to save money. $&@! Nice hikes and views.

I love the outdoors, the sounds of nature! If you're like me, don't go to Ricardo campground! Though it's a gorgeous campground, surrounded by stunning scenary, it's full of loud families with screaming kids, blaring blasting music! And this was off season, in October!!! I don't understand why people bother to go to nature when they blare their music and...

“We were just on day trip here. Plan on being self contained if you camp.”

“When you pull into the park, you drive around and select your site, then head up to the visitor center to let them know which space you've selected. First come, first served.”
