During summer months we recommend getting reservations in advance, especially on weekends and holidays. Off season camping is first-come first-served.
Camping in City of Rocks is a great way to enjoy being out in nature. Relax beneath the cool shade of aspen, juniper, mountain mahogany, or pine. Spend the night surrounded by impressive granite formations and starry skies. There are 64 standard campsites and 3 group sites to choose from with easy access to hiking trails and vistas.
All campsites have a fire-ring/ground grill and a picnic table.
Clean vault toilets are located in central areas.
Drinking water is available at Bath Rock and Emery Pass Picnic Area (April-October depending on conditions).
