its a shame, we visit the place and it is not worth to go there with your RV. there is no camping areal where you can park your RV very well leveld. but even more terrible, the hole place is compledly ran down, no maintainens since the the park was build in 2006-2008. all the wooden walkways are collapsed and it is dangeres to walk on it. but if you are keen to see the stony trees, they are still there.

Report Check-In

Arrived after 6 PM, everything closed, road to the "campground" in very bad condition. So we stayed at the visitors center. Quiet and for free. Toilets and showers are closed. Road is (except last 1.2 km) paved.

Report Check-In

Road construction still going on. Camping looked okay, but behind a locked gate as we arrived late 18:00. Opted to camp across from the information behind the crumbled police building. Park entry was 1 US pp with a guide.

Report Check-In

The petrified forest has a legitimate campground near the river, but it was closed due to road construction. The park employees let us pitch our tents in the "recreational areas" next to the park headquarters and small museum. We did not visit the park, but would have had camping conditions been better and non-street parking available. The road to the park is not in good condition, although it is currently being re-paved. We recommend not coming to the area unless you plan on spending two or three nights and know that the campground is open.
