Red Rock Canyon Camping


category : Camping
Red Rock Canyon Camping Red Rock Canyon is one of the most beautiful examples of nature's artwork in Oklahoma. Wind and water have shaped 260 million-year-old deposits from the Permian geological period into the natural sculpture you see today. A spring-fed creek still flows year-round in the canyon and large trees provide the right kind of scene for a park.

For the Tenter: Red Rock Canyon has 37 unimproved, tent type campsites located in the Canyon Campground portion of the park. Each site has a parking space, concrete picnic table and ground fire grill. Water and comfort stations are located nearby.

RV Camping: Canyon Campground has 5 modern (water, sewer &electric) type campsites and 18 semi-modern (water & electric) type campsites. California Road Campground has 28 semi-modern (water & electric) type campsites, one of which is a handicap R V campsite with 50-amp electric service, and 4 of which are pull-through.

Red Rock Canyon State Park welcomes R V Clubs and Groups. For these groups we offer the California Road Campground as a reservation area so all participants can camp together in one campground.

The park has 4 conveniently located modern comfort stations with hot showers and flush toilets. There is an RV dump station located in the park.

Some discounts off camping fees are available for RV organizations, senior citizens (limited) and disabled campers. Please ask the park office or park rangers for details.

Other features include a small 1/4 acre pond, a handicapped accessible swimming pool with a bathhouse, a concession stand, a playground, a volleyball court, several unmarked hiking trails along the canyon sides and rim, and two short interpretative nature trails: the Rough Horsetail Trail (interesting variety of plant life) and the California Road Trail (wagon tracks can still be seen). Fall is an especially auspicious time to visit when the trees in the canyon display their colors. From rock climbers to armchair geologists, visitors will find Red Rock Canyon State Park an appealing destination.

The swimming pool is located in Canyon Campground. The pool is open from the Memorial Day holiday weekend through the Labor Day holiday weekend.

Regular days of operation through the week are Tuesdays through Sundays, closed on Mondays. A fee is required to swim. Season swim passes are available.
