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.

Visitors to Red Rock Canyon State Park in the fall will get a special treat. In addition to the always beautiful scenery, from mid-October through the first part of November the foliage in the park puts on a show. The Caddo maple tree, which is native to the area, is especially stunning, producing beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow.

A day trip to Red Rock Canyon State Park can be fun, but an overnight stay is even better. Come stay at the state park and watch the colors of the canyon change as the sun rises and sets. RV sites, tent sites and picnic areas are available in the canyon year-round. Three RV sites with water, electric and sewer hookups are available, as well as 44 sites with water and electric hookups and 26 primitive sites. Due to the steep and winding hill leading to the park's entrance, RVs shorter than 40 feet are recommended.

During the summer, the park operates a swimming pool and bathhouse, which are great ways to cool off after rock climbing or hiking.
