We enjoyed the information presented and the short video in the visitor center. Interesting that the rocks were formed by volcanic ash, especially since there is a hot springs nearby. There were quite a lot of RV campers there, so it made it challenging to...More

Can't add too much to the previous reviews. But DO VISIT the visitor's center and ask to see the video. Called a "city" because of the spaces formed between the rocks are like lanes and/or streets.

We stopped on a whim & we're so glad we did! Lizards, cottontails & even jackrabbits everywhere! The formations are amazing & pictures do not do them justice!

I knew nothing about this park, but did not want to stay in a typical RV park in the area passing through on a road trip. 2 miles outside the park, you could not have convinced me that this was going to be a great...More
