Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Review
Red sandstone cliffs and dramatic desert landscapes await day-trippers and outdoors enthusiasts at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Operated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the 195,819-acre national conservation area features narrow canyons, fantastic rock formations, seasonal waterfalls, desert wildlife, and rock art sites. The elevated Red Rock Overlook provides a fabulous view of the cream and red sandstone cliffs. For a closer look at the stunning scenery, take the 13-mi, one-way scenic drive through the canyon. The backcountry byway's open from dawn to dusk. Other activities including hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, canyoneering, picnicking, and wildlife-watching. A developed campground, located 2 mi from the visitor center, has 71 campsites ($15 per night; $30 for group sites), pit toilets, and drinking water for visitors wanting to extend their stay.
