Very cool place to Camp. We watched some beautiful sunsets and moonrise, the kids had fun climbing on rocks around camp. There was a vault toilet close to our site, and the center had adequate shower and bathroom. Very affordable, we booked in advance and...More

It really is like a city of narrow streets. You can explore them and be surprised by what lays around the next rock. We thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the area and plan to be back in order to camp there for a few days. There...More

Right in the middle of the flat desert there appears a large group of standing stones that does indeed look like a "city of rocks". There is a visitor center that nicely explains the geology of how these rocks cam to be. Worth the trip...More
