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.

Beautiful park, very well maintained Love the trails
June 22 Learned so much! by Rita Spiegel
My son and I stayed overnight at Rockhound on the way from Texas to Tucson. The park host, Marilyn, gave us lots of information and advice about the specimens we could look for in the park. Marian, in the Visitors Center answered all our questions. She even suggested a reasonably-priced rock shop to polish up our finds. Rockhound is a unique stop with a great staff and the nicest bathrooms we have seen in a campground!
