City of Rocks Campground is moated by The City of Rocks, an amassing of monoliths and escarpments towering sixty stories tall, and the campground itself should be equally as high on anyone’s must-camp list. Offering myriad of campsite styles, from equestrian to RV-hookup styles, City of Rocks Campground is a mecca for the endurance-minded backpacker. But, aside from the calf-straining footpaths, we can only imagine that this place would be a state-side holy grail for nature photographers. Really thought, just look those rock faces: spellbinding, belmish-free.

One of the most gorgeous places I have ever camped, and that was when I was only 11 years old. Huge sites, I could boulder and scramble on the gorgeous rock within the perimeter of mine. Beautiful wilderness to explore and great rock climbing.

Magical little out of the way place in the south central Idaho high desert. Popular for rock climbing, some mountain biking, trail running, bird watching. Get a homemade pizza at Rock City Mercantile in town and the best remote beer selection ever. It's hot in the summer, but perfect in spring and fall.
