Red Rock Canyon State Park

116 Red Rock Canyon Rd

Red Rock Canyon State Park, located in west central Oklahoma near Hinton, is an outdoor adventurer's dream. With the backdrop of red canyon walls, visitors are invited to reconnect with the natural world while exploring the park's trails. Take a serene walk on one of the park's two nature trails, or enjoy a more strenuous hike through the rocky terrain on a hiking trail. Hikers can still see wagon wheel ruts left by settlers traveling to California, as the park was once a stop along the historic California Trail. 

Rappelling down the canyon walls is a favorite activity at Red Rock Canyon State Park. Visitors should bring their own rappelling gear to enjoy a day of challenging descents down the walls. For the most adventurous visitors, the highest point of the canyon walls goes up to 80 feet. Start from this point for spectacular views and thrills on the way down. Visitors will also enjoy trying their luck with rod and reel at the fishing pond, and the on-site playground is an instant hit with kids.

Nice place for a day hike, some light climbing, or a weekend of camping. The scenery is really pretty and unique. This is a particularly great spot to take small children for hiking. The trails are well worn, very easy to hike, and there are some cool plants and pools along the way which keep it interesting for kiddos. Nothing too strenuous here, but a fun place to visit. My son has been going since he was 2.

A fun place to visit or even stay a couple of nights. If you like walking & climbing you'll most likely enjoythe park. There's even restrooms but depending on the time of the year some might be closed along with some trails. But it's still a fun place to visit. There's multiple play grounds, grills, canopies ( some need to be reserved tho). There's even a pool open during the summer months.

Absolutely gorgeous state park, we got a great, secluded spot and have been Hiking all day. Just note, no place in the park to get ice or anything, have to go into Hinton for that. But, what a beautiful place this is!

Camped here a couple of times over the last few years and enjoyed the campsite and surrounding. We like the far corner of the site where you are surrounded by rock faces and thus, blocking any wind especially during Fall or Winter months. The campsite has bathroom and shower facility (you can pay for hotwater) if you needed some creature comforts. The site is also where you can repel off the rock faces (with the right equipment) and it takes a semi-challenging climb to get there. Even if you don’t repel, the view up there is worth it and the climb is fun. While the area is not as big as the Wichita Mountains, there are several trails to explore. The vastness of wide open spaces provides a great escape from the urban jungle.
