Lots of really interesting things to look at, the rocks themselves are amazing, the camping area, the visitors center, and the solar outline, are really cool. We always have fun when we go.

Stopped by at recommendation of several friends. It was worth the short drive over. Unique formation of rocks and neat, clean campground.

This site is an amazing place to camp in. You get to be right next to the rocks and it's like a giant area to play hide and seek. It's also very modern

This place is so peaceful and inviting. Would recommend for anyone staying nearby or passing through. The kids loved it. Only regret is not having enough time to stay and camp.

If you ever had the sense that you are not alone...may I suggest that you visit here and just 'be'. Do not go there with any preconceived thoughts or wants. Just walk through these rocks and let you senses take you back....

Took a walking tour of the area, very relaxing, beautiful flowers, Scenery was amazing. We're both in our 70's so the paths available were great. Parking is free. We did see a few insects no mosquitos.

A couple of hours would be plenty. That being said, we felt as though we would like to camp there at a future date as it is so unique.
