Summary

Rock Creek Station Recreation Area is a 40-acre campground adjacent to the Rock Creek Station State Historical Park.

Attractions

Nearby Rock Creek State Historical Park's Visitor Center overlooks some 350 acres of prairie hilltops, timber-studded creek bottoms, and rugged ravines and draws. Deep ruts, carved by the many wagons that traveled the Oregon Trail, are plainly visible there. They bear mute testimony to the rich history of the area. The Pony Express Station and Wild Bill Hickok are also part of this Historical Parks History and are displayed at the Visitor Center.

Rock Creek SRA has an area designated where visitors can camp with their horses. Some corrals are available or visitors may use their own portable pens or tie to trailer. The horse camp is primitive camping with a vault toilet, water, campfire rings, and picnic tables.
