Formed of volcanic ash 30 million years ago and sculpted by wind and water into rows of monolithic blocks, City of Rocks State Park takes its name from these incredible rock formations. Cactus gardens and hiking trails add to this unique destination.
In addition, our park rests beneath some of the darkest night skies in the country. Therefore, we are proud to announce our new Star Observatory. Experience the observatory for yourself during our monthly Stars-N-Parks program and join members of the National Public Observatory for a green-laser tour of the cosmos.
