  • This park is so beautiful. Amazing waterfall, tons of cool rock formations everywhere, giant fairytale trees, flowering trees, wild flowers, and scenic Colorado River views. Lots of fisherman so it must be pretty good. We backpacked in to the primitive spaces to really get away from it all and were not disappointed - wonderfully private and secluded. Could not find potable water anywhere - we brought plenty but were surprised not to have any to supplement. Tons of armadillos, a fun novelty for me. Great trails and so many destinations. Wonderful getaway into nature just far enough away to keep the massive crowds at bay.
  • We stayed at a primitive site and the area was beautiful. They have a station down from the sites with staff who are very helpful and had a firewood station where bundles were five bucks. All in all, the visit was fun!
