Description

Welcome to Rockhound State Park campground where the tallest vegetation is a cactus. Put on your sombrero and slap on the sunscreen before taking a hike up the rugged slopes of the Little Florida Mountains for epic desert views, interesting bird sightings, and geological wonders! Take your time and watch out for precious stones (most common in the park is Jasper), or get handy with a hammer and break apart the rocks in pursuit. Visitors touring in late winter and early spring will be surprised by a landscape covered in wildflowers.

Oh my gosh this place is awesome! The visitor center has interesting displays, the showers are clean and there are nice trails. Most sites have a shade structure.
