“Magical scenery”

Reviewed Mar 30, 2019

Overall Rating

Easy to get here. No problems with self-pay for camping and there is a visitor center with very helpful and pleasant staff if help is needed. We stayed in 1 of the 10 electrical hook up spots. We rode our bikes around the trails which were well-kept. The only minus that I found was that there is no dump station at this park, but we we... more

“Unique campground worth a visit”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here one night. This was a very interesting place to camp. There were two areas to camp, one was with full hookups (electric, water and sewer), the others were disbursed with no hookups. The FHU sites were packed neatly into two rows, flat, and compact with no privacy at all. The other sites varied from large to small and r... more

“Rocks and Star!”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2019

Overall Rating

Out in the middle of nowhere is a special place. If you enjoy rocks, sunsets, and night skies, you’ll love this place. Vault toilets abound and are clean. The visitor center has flush toilets and hot showers. Just down the road is Faywood Hot Springs, a funky cool place for soak. Day trips to Silver City are fins as well. ATT servic... more

“ No hook ups= Awesome locations!”

Reviewed Feb 25, 2019

Overall Rating

We opted for Boondocking among the rocks rather than staying in the hook up area! It was amazing. We did have to circle two or three times to find a space that would hold our 33 foot travel trailer. However it was definitely possible to bring in a bigger rig here! The hook up area would have no issues whatsoever with bigger rigs t... more

“Visit on a full moon!”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2019

Overall Rating

From other users’ reviews I’d only highlight the lack of level spots, which seemed to be actively worked on by staff in our two days there. Small place but that’s also the charm, the boulders were so much fun to wander around in— and easy too, you could walk every bit of it with your hands in your pockets. No dump stations so b... more

“Super nice.”

Reviewed Jan 24, 2019

Overall Rating

This is an awesome state park with a really confusing site selecting process, maybe the most confusing of any we've visited. Here's a quick summary: There is one big dirt loop in the park, easily drivable with any size rig, along which there are ~50 dry camping sites. The majority of these sites are not flat, and many of them are ... more

“By Far the Coolest Campground”

Reviewed Jan 15, 2019

Overall Rating

This campground is so amazing! When we first drove in, we were in awe! We had permanent smiles on our faces the whole time. The boulders are HUGE and surround the campground. I liked our campsite as we were away from the main camp area and had our own little city of rocks. Beautiful landscape views were everywhere. Colorful sunsets. Ve... more

“Interesting State Park between Rockhound SP and Silver City”

Reviewed May 08, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived while the Visitor Center was open. Our reservations were for one night, a non-electric site. Since it was warm that day, upper 80's, we opted giving up our scenic boulder site for a 30A electric site. These are first come/first serve and you have the option to renew each day. Many of the non-electric sites are among t... more

“Always sites available contrary to State website ”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Agree with previous posts so I won’t rehash.
The best sites are in the rocks boondocking! If you stay on north side of Rocks you’ll have Verizon, but not ATT. You can also receive local digital tv on north side. This is a motorcyclist’s dream area for riding to the north and east.
