Red Rock State Park

Yavapai, Arizona

Red Rock State Park outside of Sedona, AZ, may only be 298 acres -- small by state park standards -- but its postcard-worthy crimson ridge is an iconic American backdrop. The surrounding deciduous trees and Oak Creek Canyon river gorge only add to the ancient rock’s natural beauty. The park has 5 miles of trails, where travelers might spot mule deer, coyote and the endangered Sonora mud turtle. Find out more about the area’s abundant wildlife at the park’s education center, where nature-focused exhibits are sure to occupy junior park rangers.
