About
Red Rock State Park is a 286 acre nature preserve and environmental education center with stunning 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. The creek meanders through the park, creating a diverse riparian habitat abounding with plants and wildlife. This riparian habitat provides the setting and the opportunity for the park to offer a focus on environmental education. Red Rock offers a variety of special programs for school groups and private groups. There are a number of daily and weekly park events. The park offers a visitors center, classroom, theater, park store, ramada and hiking trails.

Nice trails and views
Apr 2021 • Couples
Worth a visit. Nice mix of trails with beautiful views. Small visitors center with some basic info about the natural elements. Good for a quick hike or longer visit.

Great picnic and quick walk for small kids
Mar 2021 • Family
We came to the state park for a picnic lunch and walk afterwards. The picnic area is clean and well taken care of. There are no trash cans because it is a “pack out” park to keep wildlife safe.

In the picnic area there is a path that winds around in a big “circle” to look at the different trees and cactus and labels of the plants. My preschooler loved running around and asking about the different labels.

Since we are still in a pandemic the educational part of the visitor center was closed. However the bathroom and gift shop are open. Those are also clean and well taken care of.

We walked the Bunkhouse trail down to the bridge (Blackhawk and Sentinel Crossings are closed until further notice) and came back because the trail was too hot (73 degrees) for our preschooler and he complained about walking. I think if we went earlier in the day it would have been better.

The views were nice and the river was beautiful. If you are going with young kids make sure to go early in the morning and wear a hat because of the lack of shade at the beginning.

Price is $7 per adult and free for kids under the age of 6.

Nice, clean park
Mar 2021
This is the nicest, tranquil, and serene park. The trails are very well marked and maintained. They all interconnect and are easy to navigate. All park staff were super friendly. We enjoyed our visit.

An Imposter
Feb 2021 • Couples
This review is specific to Red Rock Crossing.

Sedona is, simply put, breathtakingly beautiful, and the wealth of trails is immense.

This location however, is a private enterprise masquerading as a National Park within a National Forest. It is, quite frankly, an imposter, now charging $11.00 admission. Please don’t let yourself be ripped off, park “up” the road, walk in through the regular trails and enjoy the same view without the “franchise” ticket.

Interesting and Scenic Location
Feb 2021
You cannot see anything from the car. This is a walking park. And, compared to other parks, they way overcharge. Others are $7 per car while this is $7 per person! But, it is very scenic in redrock country, has a nice small museum and an historic old house that once belonged to the CEO of TWA airlines. It is in disrepair and no entrance but they are hoping to restore it. It is on the top of a hill with a great view of the Sedona Valley.

Beautiful State Park with great hikes
Feb 2021 • Family
Our family of four (including two teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed this State Park. We did about 5 miles total of hiking on the Eagles Nest and Javelina trails and had a great day taking in all the beautiful scenery

Red Rock Splendor
Feb 2021 • Couples
Our first visit to Red Rock State Park was splendid! The $7 per person entry fee was well worth it. Trails are well kept, marked and you can’t beat the views. Nice visitors center with small but nicely stocked store and helpful attendants and Rangers. Come prepared with water and good shoes and get ready to be awed!
