Rockhound State Park Camping Guide

Rockhound State Park and Spring Canyon Recreation Area established in 1966, consists of the main park and the Spring Canyon Recreation Area. Rockhound State Park is a favorite for "rockhounds" because of the abundant agates and quartz crystals found there. Scattered throughout the park are rock and mineral specimens of volcanic origin. These treasures range from varieties of silica minerals, quartz crystals, chalcedony, agate and common opal. Visitors are allowed to take up to 15 pounds of rock for their personal collections.

Hiking trails provide spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. The hiking trails at the park provide visitors with climbs of varying degrees of difficulty and breathtaking views. Reaching the top, visitors survey the 7,000-foot peaks of the Florida Mountains. Turquoise is mined in the Burro Mountains to the northeast.
