  • The park sits on two different mesas with about a 45 minute drive time between the two so if you want to do all the parts of the park be prepared. We started our day by doing the 1 mile loop to Step H...  more »

  • Awesome! Unfortunately the largest dwelling was closed due to rock slides. That being said, we didn't have much time so we only went to one dwelling. We will return when we have more time. It was still a great stop!!
  • Just go! You have to do a few of the tours to really get something out of this place. I also stayed at the lodge one night and the campground on another both were fantastic. I got a camp spot with lots of privacy even though they are very close. Lots of bathrooms, I had 2 in easy walking distance. The showers and laundry are all the way up at the store but not that bad of a walk if you are in the front tent spots. The rooms at the lodge are quirky(which I love) but very clean and what a view, even in the non view rooms. I ate at the lounge and had a fresh tasty salad with salmon added that was cooked perfect and a well made margarita with patron. It is a real full bar. I did try to eat at the far view terrace but that was a hot mess.... the only thing in the park I would give an F rating. There was no real line so at least 20 people were shoved against the counter yelling at 2 poor cooks trying to make their food, I walked out. But the very best thing about this park are the rangers. I didn't meet one that wasn't funny. I will definitely be going back just for the lodge.
