We bought the annual camping pass and were in 2 different sites, one dry, one w/ electric & water ($4 per night after purchase of annual pass for e & w). It was a wonderful stay, we enjoyed the starry nights program, looked at planets thru some mighty powerful telescopes & learned alot from the presenter. Our dogs really loved climbing... more

“Amazing - a new family favourite!”

Reviewed Jan 16, 2018

Overall Rating

This was probably the most unique and enjoyable place we’ve stayed. The kids (and us adults) loved exploring and climbing the rocks. The road in was great, staff was friendly, simple yet good facilities, and very quiet and peaceful. We stayed for 3 nights in January without hookups. The nights were cold but the daytime was beautiful. A... more

“Neat, well run and fun.”

Reviewed Jan 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We camped here last night, January 6th, 2018. It's a nice place for photographers and has a few miles of walking trails too. It has an interesting Astrological bent to it, with a purpose built shed with a rolling roof which houses some telescopes. Each camp site is named for a galaxy or planet. Be forewarned that while the sites ar... more

“A State Park amongst the Large Rocks”

Reviewed Oct 06, 2017

Overall Rating

The weather was really warm and we opted for one of the first come first served electric/water sites. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to run the AC. Our site had a nice metal picnic table under a metal shade structure. It was a level gravel pull-thru with plenty of space for our trailer and truck. Vegetation is strategically placed ... more

“Glorious days in the desert”

Reviewed Jul 05, 2017

Overall Rating

This was our first stop on a 3-week camping trip. As others have indicated, there is a choice between hookups in a well maintained parking lot, or no hookups nestled among the large rocks. We chose the view over hookups, and it was a great choice. Even with our visit in early June, the temperatures were comfortable at night. Ther... more

“Beautiful place”

Reviewed May 12, 2017

Overall Rating

We dry camped here as a jumping off point for Silver City and Gila Cliff Dwellings. The Campground was fantastic and we should have allowed more time to investigate this place itself! The dry camping sites are intermingled with the huge rocks. Some are small and best left for the tent campers. But many are large and accessible to... more

“Great spot ”

Reviewed Mar 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice hike/bike trail. On hook up sites, changed from a dry site. Dry sites are appealing in that they are spread among the rocks. However, it is 35 deg outside and my heater is on. Low key spot. Wouldn't stay more than a few nights. Private Hot Springs spot is just down the way. Friends are enjoying it there. Sounds like an option if y... more

“First boondocking experience”

Reviewed Mar 25, 2017

We camped here a couple of years ago in an electric site. We now have a generator and came back to try a dry camping site among the rocks. It was our first experience boondocking and it was awesome! The campsites among the rocks are so beautiful and secluded. The night skies are so dark so you can see so many stars. There are so many r... more

“Everything a State Park should be...and more!”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2017

Overall Rating

City of Rocks is such a great park I can't imagine anyone disliking it. First, it's located in the most spectacular setting amid fabulous giant rock formations which can be explored to your heart's content. Secondly, whoever designed the layout of the park was really sensitive to its features. Although the hook-up sites (electric and w... more
