Area Attractions
Take a Walk Through History : The Coal Camp Interpretive Trail winds through the ruins of the Sugarite coal camp. Coal mining in the area provided an important economic boost to the region and state. The visitor center provides information about the coal camp and the area's history.

Captivating Caprock : An extended cliff of basaltic rock columns, often referred to as "caprock" is the dominant geologic feature at the park. About 12 million years ago, broad sheets of molten lava erupted from a nearby volcano, forming layers of basalt rock 10-100 feet thick. Rock climbing is allowed on the caprock.
Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 21
Nice clean facilities Wonderful camp host. The local residents came in took over site and ran us out with loud music after 10pm and pure intimidation. When I filed a report with the Ranger he said that he had already had three previous incidents with the same group. Left out of fear. Do not go there!!!!!!!!
March 25 Great place to camp. by Happy Camper
We have stopped here on our way too and from Colorado many times and have really liked it.We camped up on Soda Butte and also down in the main campground. It has been a great place to stop and we will be back many more times.
