  • We always overnight at Santa Rosa State Park when we're traveling east or west on I-40! Excellent biking and hiking opportunities.

  • We managed to catch a spot at this state park campground very last minute. We are so happy we did! Water/Electric for less than $20 a night. Great little spots, bath house available. The view of the surrounding area is amazing! Highly recommend to anybody traveling the area.
  • Has the best fishing. Rock bluffs amazing. My family we would camp and fish there all the time. Really good cat fish. 🐟
