City of Rocks National Reserve

Size: 14,407 Acres

Overview: A spectacular array of boulders and mountain crags bring visitors to City of Rocks National Reserve. Stones appear as elephants and overhangs take the form of heroic figures. Visitors explore the “city of tall spires,” climb the rock walls, and marvel at the wildflowers. Near to City of Rocks is Castle Rocks State Park, an old ranch that offers more opportunity to take in the changing stone landscape.  Pastures spanning the horizon glow as the morning sun hits the grass. Epic thunderstorms roll across the prairie and light up the rock city.

Fees, permits, and reservations may apply.
