Natural Features

Red Rock Canyon's unique geology with multicolored sandstone atop of gray limestone creates a unique environment with seasonal springs and waterfalls. There are many archeological sites of petroglyphs, pictographs, and agave pits in the Willow Springs Picnic Area. It's home to the threatened desert tortoise and many other desert animals. The campground is in a quiet bowl near some of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the country, providing privacy with limited shade.

Accessible Features at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Photos of accessible features at the Red Rock Canyon NCA Campground.

Accessibility

The Red Rock Campground has three fully accessible campsites. At these sites, the parking spots have a concrete surface, as they do at most other sites at the facility. In addition, there are concrete pathways leading to the restrooms, which are all accessible.

Accessible water spigots are located throughout the park, and all campsites have wheelchair-accessible picnic tables. In addition, service dogs are allowed without restrictions.

Notes:

  • The surface leading to the campground's "walk-to" sites consists of dirt and gravel; it is hard-packed and fairly level, but flash floods can erode the area, decreasing accessibility.
  • The "walk-to" sites have picnic tables and fire grills, but be aware that they were not designed with ADA guidelines in mind. Also, parking for these sites is at a dirt-covered parking lot about 200 feet away.
  • Although the Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center, 2 miles from the campground, is largely wheelchair accessible, in the back part of the center the surface consists of gravel, making access more difficult.

"As a person with autism, I find Las Vegas to be an overwhelming sensory experience. When it gets to be too much, I go to the Red Rock National Conservation Area for some peace and quiet. And when the NCA and campground get a little too crowded, then I head into the La Madre Mountain Wilderness, which is one of my favorite places for a calm, quiet multi-sensory escape." -Red Rock visitor
