Red Rock State Park RV & Campground Guide


Red Rock State Park was opened to the public in 1991, making it a fairly new addition to Arizona's state park system. However, its beautiful red canyon and abundant flora and fauna have been around for countless years. Once part of Smoke Trail Ranch, Red Rock State Park encompasses 286 acres, sits at an elevation of 3,900-4,500 feet, and is located near the wildly popular city of Sedona as well as the Village of Oak Creek. 

Thanks to the moderate weather in the spring and fall months, high temperatures during the seasons rarely surpass 80 degrees, and nighttime lows are in the 30s. During the spring, the foliage pops with lush greens and colorful wildflowers. In the winter months, it snows up to 25 inches each year, and in the summer, temperatures can reach highs that surpass 100 degrees and lows that hover in the high 60s.
