Overview Service & Activities
About As its name implies, Medicine Rocks was a place of 'big medicine' where Indian hunting parties conjured up magical spirits. 'As fantastically beautiful a place as I have ever seen,' said one of its first tourists in the late 1800s, a young rancher named Teddy Roosevelt. Weathering has given the soft sandstone rock formations a Swiss cheese look. The park is also a haven for mule deer, antelope, Woodhouse's toad and sharp tailed grouse. You can camp, bike ride, go picnicking, watch for wildlife or go hiking on a short .75 mile trail. This unique park is 330 acres in size and is at an elevation of 1,050 feet. There are approximately 12 camping sites with vault toilets, a group use area, grills/fire rings, water pumps, picnic tables, and drinking water. Campers may stay 14 days during a 30 day period. Two golf courses and a museum are located nearby in Baker and there is also a museum in Ekalaka. Due to its primitive park designation, it is a pack-in/pack-out site and there are no fees to enter or stay there. Donations are accepted to assist with maintenance of the site.
