I love Red Rock Canyon! Only 45 minutes from Oklahoma Cit,it can be a fun day trip. The north end of the park has a great hiding trail that's covered with horse tail reeds. It is one of my favorite places to photograph butterflies, dragonflies, and other wildlife. There are plenty of camp sites for RVs and tenters. On the... More

We only had a short time to drive down to the bottom and see what was there. The week before there was an ice storm and there were branches down all over the ground and they were just getting them picked up. It was a very big job ahead of them. The weather was great for the beginning of December... More

This place has the potential to be stunning, but the natural beauty is marred by the sad lack of care on the part of those overseeing the park. When we walked into the office, we were met by a somewhat sullen young woman who didn't even respond to our greeting. We asked where the trails were, and she pointed at... More

We were just in town visiting and heard we should drive through this place. So we just drove through in our rental car and it was beautiful! Looks like a great place to camp, if we ever travel with our camper, we would definitely stop there. The pool looks amazing.

We camped here one night and were very impressed with the park. It's so much bigger than we realized when we chose our RV site. It goes on way beyond where we pulled in, with a lot of spacious grassy sites and picnic shelters, as well as a nice pool.

We found this park rather boring. We came here on a day trip. They do have overnight camping. The park is small and not much to see other than the reddish orange canyon walls in a couple of areas. We parked and hiked the California Road Nature Trail. We saw more trees and fallen debris than we did any of... More

We had an awful experience here. First off, I will say that the scenery and canyon are gorgeous! If you are coming just for a few hours, you'll have no problems (unless you go in the bathrooms). We got the park around 9 pm. The office was closed (a sign on the door indicated no one was there all day... More

I've been visiting here since I was a kid. It is close enough to OKC for a day trip or overnight camping. It's a closed end canyon so you can climb up one side, walk around the top and come down the other side. I' have always seen groups rappelling on many of the cliffs. Rocks are mostly sandstone so...

We enjoyed the hiking trails, the campground and the lush green trees. The kids were able to hang up their hammocks. Very relaxing weekend retreat just one hour from home :)

The hiking trails are a let down compared to other trails in Oklahoma. Maybe I'm used to the Witchita Mtns. And the fact that they say there's fishing here is a joke. It's a miss covered watering hole. Just my opinion.
