Faywood - City of Rocks State Park


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.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was incredible! The rock formations are very beautiful and fun to climb on. My two daughters LOVED it. The bathrooms were nice the showers were clean and the water was hot! The roads were easy to even with a large RV. And even though it is out in the middle of nowhere I actually had great 4g signal(with T-Mobile) which was really nice because both wife and I both work online! And the night sky! Holy cow the stars are fantastic!

Very popular place. So happy we got a spot. Not very many electric / water spaces . But who cares? Has showers, handicap too. No dump station. Free dump station at the Valero in Deming. Easy hiking paths . Heck climb all over the rocks. Going to Mennonite breakfast tomorrow , not to far I hope let you know

Great camping and hiking area. Kids of all ages will love exploring Rock City. Some great camp sites for tents as well. It is best to plan ahead and book a site. Firewood is available at the information center. Well maintained washroomd and showers.

Surprisingly cool rock monoliths abound... more or less Stonehenge sized rocks, in a huddle within a valley. Lots of cactus, some blooming . Pleasant Visitors Center. A unique place.
