This was the most beautiful place we stayed during a 6-week tour of the United States. The campground was obviously designed by an artist. Even the signs were beautiful! The sites are not extremely far apart, but they are designed in such a way that you can't see from one site into another. There were also handicapped accessible sites, and accessible restrooms as well. Everything was extremely clean and designed to blend in with the pink-orange rock formations. It was such gorgeous landscape. Each site has a water spigot, but not "water hookups" as the spigot is not threaded. Our site was gravel, had a picnic table and water spigot. The site was not really level, but we didn't care. We were exhausted after a long, long driving day, but this place was worth the wait. We played and hikes and exercised our dogs. Once the sun set, it was very dark, right away. The next morning we awoke to amazing views again. We did some hiking and spoke with the friendly ranger. She advised we should watch where we walk because of snakes and scorpions. The sites and entrance fee were paid by putting money in the envelope, so having the correct cash amount is a good idea. I highly recommend stopping here. I imagine the scenery is comparable to Red Rock Canyon, but this place was very quiet and private. Also it's a state park, so it was clean, affordable, well-staffed and well-funded.

Two campgrounds in park, one is in beautiful rock setting, no hookups, need to spend one day touring park. $5 entrance fee for park, $7 a day camping.

A nice state park with excellent sites. Excellent restrooms and showers. Campsites nestled next to the rocks. We drove around to all the featured sites and hiked the associated trails. The petroglyths were interesting. The rock formations are quite colorful and have very intersting shapes. We even saw Elmer Fudd looking out from the top of a rock. This place is definitely a keeper and we'll be back when we have more time.

This is a great desert getaway. It is about 40 miles from Las Vegas. The park features beautiful red rock scenery. It is hot in the summer but not crowded. The campsites are privatly nestled next to outcrops of red sandstone. There are excellent shower facilities.
