This was really interesting to see...I always do research before each trip, and understood the geology of the rock formations. I was able to explain the origins of the formations to the kids before we got there. Then let them loose on the rocks to forget all that I had lectured them on...They might remember some, LOL! It was wonderful... More

Great for kids to get out of the car and just explore. They keep the area clean and the rocks are truly a fun place to let your kids explore and let loose.

After some recommendations from friends, we took an almost 2 hr road trip to check this place out. We were not disappointed! It's $3/adult and .50/kid. We spent approx 2 hours or so, (may go back in the fall when it's a bit cooler, it was getting hot) there. Pack a picnic they have a covered picnic area to enjoy... More

Went here after 5. Great to walk around and marvel at these rocks and wonder how they came to be. I liked touching them and of course photography.

Stopped by on our way home from Concordia. Super cute town, clean looking. The road to Rock City is a dirt road, NOT GRAVEL, DIRT!! We live on a gravel road so it wasn't a big deal to us, however, it had just rained and the road was a mud pit! Very nice park area, nicely kept, with picnic tables... More

Very interesting little park. *The park is little, but the "rocks" are HUGE! We would have enjoyed it more if we had gone at a time that was a little less steamy. ;) The kids would have stayed for hours climbing and they have a cute little picnic area.

Rock City is a really neat place to visit. There are tons of circular rocks formed in the middle of no where. You are able to climb on them, which is really cool. We went in the off season, but I hear if you go in the summer, the little gift shop is open and the person inside can give... More

Is a small park with big round rocks. We were passing thru and excised to stop and have lunch there. It was hot and windy that day, my kids hop on the rocks and jump and had a good time we ate our sandwiches and off we go . They have vaulted bathrooms , but they were pretty clean. Very... More

Here is an area where you can find over 200 calcite cemented sandstone concretions up to 27 feet in diameter that have evolved over the centuries. Extremely interesting (and the kids live climbing all over them).
