This park is a staple for near Oklahoma City hiking

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... read more

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.

When I have the mood to go camping or spend some time in nature without having to drag the tent and other junk, I'll come here with my husband for a day trip. It's about an hour drive from OKC to Red Rock and well worth it. We love to hike around the park and if you're into rapelling you... More

If you are traveling across Oklahoma on the interstate you really need to see this place. After several uninterrupted miles of flat land you can turn down into a beautiful green canyon that almost seems out of place on the plains. With running water, play areas for the kids, a nice pool, and red cliffs for climbing and rappelling, you... More

Had my wonderful nieces and nephew for a weekend and wanted to do something outside and not in the norm, so went to Red Rock Canyon. It is about an hours drive from NW OKC and its a charming drive, BTW the best stretch of highway I've ever driven on in the state(who knew 40 west of Yukon was smooth... More

Went during the crazy beautiful weather we had in Jan 2015. Lots of trails to use within a small park. Overall a beautiful area and pet friendly!
