“Biiiiiig rock!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Not a destination, but interesting to see and wonder how the heck it got here. Across the road is a much smaller rock cutely named Little Rock Farms. Not many notice it.

“You can't miss the "Big Rock"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is a very accessible and interesting feature. It's not far from the parking lot but don't just view it from there - walk up and have a closer look. The geology is interesting and so is the connection to First Nations lore. Kids will enjoy this too.

“It's just exactly what it says it is, a big rock.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

It looks out of place. It makes you wonder about the force of glaciers. It is not that far out of town. But it is just a big rock. Didn't expect much and got just that and a few photo ops.

“OKOTOKS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Didn't find out about about the big rock till we had moved on to Calgary--wish we had seen it ,but the reviews are excellent

Okotoks is a great place to stop off enroute--good accomodations, and great restaurants,especially the small privately operated fish and chip shop
