Steptoe Butte State Park

Steptoe Butte State Park Review

The park is named after an army officer who lost a battle in 1858 against Native Americans at nearby Rosalia. The lieutenant colonel and other survivors sneaked away at night—a retreat historians think was permitted by their adversories. The park has picnic tables but no water.
