The Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center is a focal point for visitor orientation. The multiple facilities offer information and interpretation about recreation opportunities, geology, wildlife, and much more.
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area has one developed campground. Opened in 1998 to replace the Old Oak Creek Campground, and formerly known as the 13-Mile Campground, the Red Rock Canyon Campground is located two miles east of the visitor center on W. Charleston Blvd (State Route 159). The campground is located one mile south on Moenkopi Road from the junction with W. Charleston Blvd.
Access to the campground is open 24 hours a day. There is no check-in, however, payment of fees must be made within 30 minutes of arrival at a self-registration station. This campground is a mixed use campground. Campers with tents, and recreational vehicles are intermixed in the area. Generators are permitted between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
The campground has individual campsites (including 14 walk-in sites) and 7 group sites. To make the campsite availability fair to all, there is a 14-day limit in effect.
Reservations for the individual campsites are not allowed. It is not suggested to arrive in the middle of the night in the hopes of locating an empty campsite, especially during the fall and spring. The Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday periods are also very busy. The campground closes each summer, typically closing just after Memorial Day and opening in time for Labor Day. This past season the campground closed on May 31, 2012 and reopened on August 30, 2012.
Reservations for the group campsites are required and can be made by calling (702) 515-5371 or RRC_Reservations@blm.gov.
Campground hosts live on-site and volunteer for the Bureau of Land Management. They are there to assist you in making your visit as enjoyable as possible.
