General Information

Red Rock State Park
Copyright: - Arizona State Parks
Red Rock State Park
Description - Red Rock State Park is a 286 acre nature preserve and environmental education center. The park, which operates both as a nature reserve and an environmental center, offers beautiful scenery. Trails throughout the park wind through manzanita and juniper to reach the rich banks of Oak Creek. Green meadows are framed by native vegetation and hills of red rock.

Attractions - The park offers a variety of special programs for school groups and private groups. Additionally the picnic area and classrooms may be reserved for public or private functions.

Park facilities include a visitors center, classroom, theater, gift shop, picnic tables, 10 developed trails, restrooms, and group area with Ramada and facilities. The restrooms are handicapped accessible. Camping facilities are not available at the park.

Recreation - Recreational opportunities offered by Red Rock State Park include attending special programs, hiking, picnicking, and viewing scenery.

Climate - Red Rock State Park has a high elevation of 3,900 feet and as such should not experience the harsh desert climate of low elevation sites. However, during the summer months visitors can still expect very hot temperatures with afternoon thunderstorms possible especially in July and August. Daytime high temperatures can exceed 95 degrees. Winter brings moderate temperatures to the low elevations, with warm days and cool to cold nights. Winter is a good time to experience these normally snow free areas. Fall and spring are transitional periods and can also be nice times to visit these desert regions. Be prepared for cool temperatures at higher elevations and dress in layers for your travels in this state of varying climates.

Location - Red Rock State Park is located near the town of Sedona in central Arizona. The park is approximately 5 miles from Highway 89A on the Lower Red Rock Loop Road.
