City of Rocks Campground
Camping is highly popular between April and November, and reservations are recommended on most weekends, holidays, and even weekdays in June. City of Rocks offers 64 campsites, many tucked in among the granite fins and boulders. Several sites are shaded by aspen, juniper, mountain mahogany and pine.
All sites have a ground grill/fire-ring and picnic table, and many have defined tent pads. Clean vault toilets are located in central areas, and drinking water (April-October) is available at Bath Rock and Emery Pass Picnic Area.
City of Rocks also offers a designated, by permit only, backcountry camping area at Indian Grove. A permit can be obtained from the Visitor Center.
Nearby Castle Rocks State Park's Smoky Mountain Campground provides 38 campsites with water and 30 amp electric hook-ups; long, pave parking pads of which 9 are pull-through. Six sites on a separate loop accommodate equestrian campers. This facility also has flush toilets and showers.
