Where wild grape vines climb sheer rock cliffs, and Gambel oaks, cottonwoods and elms provide a shady retreat; Kershaw-Ryan State Park is truly a desert oasis. Natural springs feed the lush landscape, providing a beautiful contrast to the rugged volcanic rock that make up the canyon walls. Situated in colorful Rainbow Canyon, it is a nature lover’s dream.

It is the perfect base-camp for all canyon activities including rock art viewing, rock climbing, and hiking.
