Medicine Rocks State Park

Fodor's Review

Wind and water carved holes in the sandstone pillars north of Ekalaka, creating an eerie and barren landscape. Embracing the terrain's mystery, Native Americans used the site for rituals to conjure spirits centuries ago. Teddy Roosevelt was struck by the area's unique beauty when he visited in the late 19th century. In 1957 the area was designated Medicine Rocks State Park. The 320-acre park is largely undeveloped; aside from a few picnic tables, a short hiking trail,

and a handful of unmarked campsites, the land is exactly how it was when Native Americans first performed their ceremonies here.
