Steptoe Butte State Park

  • Park (National/State/Provincial)

Updated 10/31/2014

Fodor's 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. The hike to the summit of the 3600-foot-high butte rewards hikers with panoramic views of 200 miles in distance.
