Located on the rugged west slope of the Little Florida Mountains, Rockhound State Park is a favorite for "rockhounds" because of the abundant agates and quartz crystals found there. Hiking trails provide spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 7 have yet to visit here by Sam G.
Hello! In the near future I hope to be traveling through the southwest. On my way to northern Az. May visit the Elephant butte area and hope to visit the Deming area. In the 1980s traveled through and visited a rock shop. Purchased some beautiful green serpentine there which was later lost in a yard sale catastrophe. Hope to spend time collecting here.
October 25 an exciting adventure by dianne dolittle
