Where are we going today?

Red Rock Park, situated in Indian Country, is the gateway to Zuni, one of the Seven Cites of Cibola sought by Coronado and the Conquistadors; Acoma, the sky city, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the United States; Old Laguna Pueblo and its Spanish church; the Hopi Reservation; and the Navajo and El Morro are among the National monuments within a two hour drive from Red Rock Park. Petrified Forest National Park, the Ice Caves beneath Lava Badlands with temperatures of 31 degrees year round, the incomparable views of the badland formations known as the Painted Desert are all natural wonders that shouldn't be missed when exploring the Gallup area.

    My wife and I arrived just after the park opened. It was early October, the temperature was in the low 70s, and the sky The park staff were welcoming and helpful. We went on a guided nature hike (about 2 or 3 miles) with a very well informed guide. He was very laid back, and almost every few feet pointed out everything from ants clearing an area and carrying food to their nest, to interesting facts about the trees we passed, including how Native Americans made use of the different plants. This is a relatively new park, the people who work there...Read More

    The Red Rock State Park is deceptively named; it should be called the Oak Creek State Park. The park is located well outside of Sedona, and the visitor center offers information only pertaining to the natural features and creatures of the creek area. The visitor center offers several learning stations for little children. The visitor center does offer a dated video of the surrounding area, and does mention the great shopping in Sedona. The Viewing of Sedona's red rock is poor. While the State Park entry staff hyped up the view of Cathedral Rock,...Read More

    Use the visitors center as a destination to navigate into the park.

    Great trails, all mild or moderate. Great service from park employees.

    A comfortable place to stay. All dirt, but beautiful natural red rock scenery to look at. Big pull through sites, very easy to get in and out of.

This is a relatively new park, the people who work there care very much about the beauty it contains and its history.

The Red Rock State Park is deceptively named; it should be called the Oak Creek State Park.

The visitor center offers several learning stations for little children. The visitor center does offer a dated video of the surrounding area, and does mention the great shopping in Sedona. The Viewing of Sedona's red rock is poor. While the State Park entry staff hyped up the view of Cathedral Rock, it was actually lackluster. Any viewing of the surrounding hillside and its shrubbery was distracted by local housing. The park is nestled between neighborhoods. We did not try the hiking routes offered in the park. The fee, as of 04/26/14, was $5.00 per person over 14 years of age. We were very dissapointed with this state park. We recommend you avoid it, unless you are interested in Oak Creek.
