We were there on a Monday so we didn't get to see the pictographs (no tour offered). They did have a nice little museum and overlook at the visitor center. The campground is nice and quiet and a good stopover.

We visited Seminole Canyon State Park in November 2016. We camped here in our popup camper. Our site was very nice! It was flat, level and quite roomy with a nice big covered picnic table and fire pit. The visitor center was really cool. It...More

Yes. Both men & women have nice hot showers. There are some RV sites on the lower level very close to the restrooms/showers. Happy Holidays! Baja Bo

Hi, is this park ok to visit/hike with small children? I have a 4 and 6 year old (plus older children too), but not sure how aggressive the hikes are. I really want to visit the cave/rock art but hoping we don't drive all the way to discover it's too rough for the littler ones. Also, does this park have guided tours during the week of Nov. 21-23. Thanks.
