Camping and hiking, Red Rock Canyon Adventure Park, Ok

Views from the campground

We needed a one night stop ? and were traveling ? on I-40 outside of Oklahoma City. As luck would have it, Red Rock Canyon Adventure Park was a short drive off the interstate ?.

Hiking the Rough Horsetail Trail

After hours of driving through a flat Oklahoma, it was a pleasant surprise to descend into the Red Canyon. The drive into the canyon was surreal and unexpected. In addition to RV and tent camping, the park offers picnic areas, nature trails, a small fishing pond, and playground equipment. The canyon walls are a favorite for rappelling and open exploration. In season, the park operates a swimming pool with bathhouse (and adjacent food concession) and the group camp, which offers overnight sleeping in bunkhouses, and a kitchen/dining hall for meals or meetings. Group picnic shelters are also available. The park and surrounding area has good opportunities for fall foliage viewing.

Nature Trail

Our thoughts ? about the campground

The Red Rock Canyon Adventure Park was a state park but has changed into private hands around 2018. We found RRCP an oasis in a desert ? that begins with a descent into a red canyon that is verdant with trees ? and rough horsetails. We highly recommend exploring the trails within the canyon. The campsites were relatively large allowing space between sites. The camp host was very friendly and the campgrounds are well maintained; albeit, a little outdated. We did not have a cell phone signal while at this campground except in occasional locations. We felt the cost was a little expensive; however, there are a lot of amenities within the park.

Products we love ❤️

After 12,000 miles on the road and hundreds of miles hiking ? throughout America, our Merrells have withstood all types of terrain and although they may be dirty, the quality is outstanding and are ready for the next 12,000.

Being on the water is very therapeutic and lots of fun. Space is always our issue so the inflatable kayak was our answer. Easy to inflate but we did buy a battery ? pump to make life easy. We have kayaked the lakes of Montana, Idaho, Arkansas, Minnesota, South Carolina, Arizona and the Intex has not let us down.

Robin’s favorite outdoor cooking utensil

Great personal usb fans. Perfect for warm dry camping nights

Our Retro Jr offers only so much space so to expand the cooking area, Robin loves this easy to put up table from Lifetime. No issues after multiple setups and break downs.

Campers are for the most part very honest and friendly people. However, pulling GG through a city and leaving her to go explore can make one feel uneasy ? so this easy locking ? system was our solution.

Our teardrop does not come with a refrigerator so coolers are our life blood. We needed to keep our food cold for days on end and these coolers did the trick.

Grand daughter had her first birthday  so the best gift was to start her love of camping. Love you  Bridget.

Traveling over 12,000 miles in a Teardrop trailer one realizes space is an issue. We highly a roof rack to aid in carrying more items ie inflatable kayak, life jackets, oars, and etc.

12,000 miles on the road, one of my best purchases was my Costa sunglasses ?. The glare from driving is gone and the polarized lenses intensified the colors of my surroundings.
