“once a stop along the historic California Trail”

Red Rock Canyon is a beautiful example of nature's artwork in Oklahoma. Wind, water and natural forces have shaped 260 million-year-old deposits from the Permian geological period Into the natural sculpture you see today. Before the mid-1800s, Plains Indians used the canyon as a winter camp. Game was abundant, the water was pure and clean and it was an escape from the cold prairie winds, just as it is today. The canyon became a landmark on the California Road. During the 1849 California Gold Rush, the westward leading road was a haven for weary travelers. It provided fresh water, grazing for livestock and a place to rest and repair their wagons. In 1956, the City of Hinton, Hinton Kiwanis Club, and one other individual donated the land, known as Kiwanis Canyon Park to the state. The park was renamed Red Rock Canyon State Park. The 310 acres of steep, rugged cliffs and canyons make the park a favorite spot for camping and hiking. As of November 1st, 2018 the Red Rock Canyon State Park was no longer operated by the State of Oklahoma. However, the park is now privately operated with a desire to see this beautiful park continue to thrive and reach more visitors to showcase the beauty of Red Rock Canyon. The canyon floor is home to a rich ecosystem that includes many varieties of trees, birds and animal life. Nature puts on a spectacular fall foliage show from mid-October to mid-November but every season is special at Red Rock Canyon Adventure Park.

Beautiful setting. It is a cozy park with wonderful campsites. Nice spacing. The green of the trees against the red rock is gorgeous. We also did a hike through the trails. Very nice and added a really great aspect to the park. Loved the park.

We found this a great place to crash for a night on our cross country road trip. We got there late but selfpaid found a great cement pad to put up our pop up and everything was easy and clean. Just crash one night and left the next morning.

As a geologist, nice turn out from the interstate to take a view of nature. Nice spire and iron stained sandstone.

This seemed to be a good spot for campers. They have tent and rv sites. Didn't really feel like a state park. I was a little disappointed that I didn't see any scenic views. This was a decent place for us to let the dog out for a few minutes.

There at the end of August, pretty hot but it was summer. Almost empty, quiet and very pretty. Great place to stay the night, nice showers.
Was able to get atop in the evening for some nice sunset colors on the rocks.

It's not a big park, but very pretty. There's only one fairly short nature trail, which was closed for flood damage when I was there (June 2014), but I still enjoyed my brief visit.

I would suggest going when there is life in the park - Spring or Summer. Even Fall would be good. The end of Winter (April 1st), however, wasn't great. If you've never been to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO then this is probably a good place to go, otherwise it's just okay.

Being here in the off season late in the year was a joy. Stayed here towards the end of the year for about a week and really enjoyed the ancient canyon, the trees and the sound of the small river running right behind my camper. Very relaxing.
