Cathedral Gorge State Park reviews
We didn’t camp but there is lots of hiking, climbing. Interesting texture. No reservations for the campground and electric only I think. Like this part of the world.

The moon and slot area of this park are a giant playground for all. My husband and I are in our 60's and loved climbing around all over the formations. Of course, we didn't climb high or deep, but..... more

Such a one of a kind sight, definitely worth a stop. Make sure you have cash to pay to get in. Cathedral Gorge is a wonder, you can walk into the deep passages inside of the intricate spires. It's much cooler in these passageways . There are restrooms available and covered tables. You can also camp in the campground there as well.
This is a great park! Our kids spent hours exploring the slots (caves) in these fascinating geological formations. I want to give a shout out to the wonderful park ranger working in the visitor center. I wish I remembered her name. She gave the kiddos Jr. Ranger booklets and they filled them out, but when we got back to the visitor center to get the ranger badges, we goofed on the time and it was closed. She heard us at the locked doors and she let the kids in to get their badges anyway. Great park and great people!
