Red Rock Canyon State Park (RRCSP), Hinton Oklahoma

Wife and I just spent a four day weekend at Red Rock Canyon, in Hinton, Ok.
Due to the steep grade with a serious slanted switchback no trailers or coaches over 40 feet in length are permitted.

It's not a long entrance, just very steep and twisty. Coming out in wet weather with two wheel drive might be kind of fun.

Once you are in the park there is a public pool and rappelling areas for those that like to dangle from ropes, bring your own equipment. The RV sites range from 30 amp with shared water/no sewer to 50 amp with full hookups. Most sites have fire rings and grills and all include a table. Some sites have gravel pads, some have cement slabs and some are just sod. The one we had (47) had nice shade for most of the day.

The park tends to be pretty quite, there are nature trails and wagon ruts from the days of the westward expansion. Just down the road there is a nice local effort museum where you can easily kill three hours in. There is a city rodeo grounds with a barn area the host a lot of auctions. Saw a Browning 10 gauge pump shotgun in fine shape sell for 375 and a nice Ruger SAA with a 10 inch barrel go for 425.

There are many good restaurants nearby and a nine hole golf course.
Fort Cobb is nearby and offers boating opportunities, but is more of a fishing lake with catfish being the most common fished for.

There are other nearby museums within a 45 minute drive and Roman Nose State Park is just less than an hour away.

The camp host is genial and has been running the RRC State Park for 30+ years. There is a very nice sewer dump at the entrance to the park and one down in the park that is currently out of service.

RRCSP was an Indian winter camp for the Plains Indian tribes. Much native American history in this area.

Our cost for a nights stay for the 30 amp, shared water, no sewer was $20.00, if you reserve online they tack on another four bucks. The park was only about half full, with good, shady spots still in abundance.

This place makes a good base camp to use for a series of day trips, about an hour west of Oklahoma City. If you trailer motorcycles then there are lots of open country highways to chase around in and lots of little towns to stop at and have a burger.

There is the Johnny Bench museum in Binger, Oklahoma as well as the Native American museum in Anadarko, Oklahoma, again easy day trips from RRCSP.

Nice park. If you call the office they will block traffic so you can come up out of there using the whole road, believe me, you will need it.

I wondered about that, the scene from "Paper Moon" where the two trucks meet in the middle of a long one lane bridge comes to mind.

They need to post offer and phone number at both ends of the entrance.

Lots of tire rubber left on the road on the biggest curve.
