The roads here are impassable when wet. We were in a Prius and came in the back way and the road is barely there. Rough terrain. We walked around the area but did not go to the hoodoos. It makes for some cool pics but...More
This was such a fun and interesting place to visit, considering how flat the rest of the state is. We also discovered a multitude of wildflowers everywhere as well. As it was so totally isolated, it was quite peaceful as well.
Road tripping back roads across kansas, this one was definitely on my radar. So happy i came here. Very cool formations and scenic views. One of kansas 8 wonders, but definitely off the beaten path. Gravel roads to get to it, and somewhat rough roads...More
Just got back from Castle Rock. It is a lovely place that is worth spending several hours but if you only have 15 minutes it would be worth the drive to get there. As one reviewer already said, the drive getting there is worth it,...More
We enjoyed seeing Castle Rock and the surrounding area - even sharing the road with the cows. We almost missed it, however, because the sign leading to the rocks was nearly obscured by weeds. Also, the road into the site is a little rough, so...More
