Yeah, the rock formations here are impressive and picturesque. And I hear they're great for climbing. But we just wanted to hike on a quiet trail for awhile. Found what we though was a good trail, but it's overall path was very confusing. We didn't...More

This place is amazing. I just wish people would respect it better. Each time I go I end up getting at least a grocery bag full of garbage. Last time I went my family came across a broken beer bottle. If you go, please leave...More

The trails were easy and peaceful. Busy but friendly. Restrooms are available. Trails connect funny but you always get back to the parking lot-it's just that you might have to walk through the lot to find your vehicle.

This is a neat, quaint town. Unless you are related somehow to the University, there is nothing there for you. Scarce jobs, mediocre shops, lots of open land. It is great for outdoors stuff, but nothing more.

Lots of interesting rock formations and vistas. Some of the trails (not roads) you will need four wheel drive. Worth the time to see especially if you do the Ames Monument.

A group of us went to this area and viewed over 40 wildflowers. The rock formations were amazing to appreciate close up. The trails were well-maintained and so were the restrooms. I would definitely recommend Turtle Rock Trail.

Beautiful hiking trails and photo ops. My family loves to go there during the fall when it isn't too hot (or cold), and the leaves are turning color.

The best spots do. Much of the campground has been cleared of trees due to pine beetle, so many of the campsites are treeless. Many of those are often available. The upper Campground allows RVs. The lower Campground is tents... More
