“Beautiful park with water access and dinosaur footprint trail”

Reviewed Aug 05, 2016

Overall Rating

We got lost on the way to this park despite a very large sign telling us where to turn off from highway 191 but it's very easy to reach from Watch for Cottontail Rabbits on the road- they seem suicidal especially at twilight.
The park is nestled in between spectacular red rocks next to a large reservoir. The park also features a fantastic dinosaur footprint trail which is 3 miles round trip- I highly recommend taking time for this.
You can rent stand up paddle boars and canoes for a very reasonable rate of 35 dollar for 4 hours.
There are no showers available but they have 2 large bathrooms and a large fish cleaning station.
I would not recommend the regular camping spots as they all seem very close together. The spots in the middle of the park are all in a green lawn like space but most of the spots are on a slope. I highly recommend the 2 teepee spots in the park. RVS will have no problem fitting here- there are spots for all sizes.
Site 23 is the brown teepee right next to the entrance. We were worried about noise but it was very quiet both friday and saturday night in mid summer. The Park Ranger on duty is a police officer and his home is right behind the teepee site so we felt really safe.
Site 38 has a prettier blue teepee with a gorgeous view of the water. UPDATE: this teepee was blown down 2 weeks later and is currently unavailable.
Both teepees had artificial turf flooring which is great for keeping the critters out. We saw the Milky Way and a huge black and cream stripped snake. The nearest town is about 30 minutes away in case you forget to get something.
