​With close to 4000-acres, Roxborough State Park is filled with dramatic red-rock formations, distinct plant communities, and a variety of wildlife ranging from black bears to mule deer.

Whether you are new to the outdoors or an experienced outdoor enthusiast, Roxborough State Park has an opportunity for you.

Preserve Nature:

To preserve Roxborough's natural resources, no pets, drones, camping, mountain bikes, horses, rock climbing, fires, or marijuana are permitted in Roxborough State Park. 


 ​Forget to leave your dog at home?

Luckily a dogs world is conveniently located near the entrance to the park. They offer a discount for any daycare customer who presents a valid daily parks pass after visiting the park on the same day. To learn more visit the a dogs world's website.

Attention Groups!

Due to popularity and limited parking, all groups of 10 or more must contact the park prior to their visit for approval. This includes all recreation groups and meet-up groups. All schools and youth groups must schedule a guided program with the park by filling out the appropriate request form

No groups larger than 10 will be permitted on weekends May 1st - October 31st without prior approval by the Park Manager. 

Please email the park with a signed Special Activity Agreement in order to be considered for approval for your group.

Plan Ahead​​

​Please note that we only have one road from the entrance gate to the parking lots and have limited parking available. There is no oversized parking available in the park.

If you are planning to use a taxi or rideshare app to get to the park, be aware there is limited cell service and the park is outside of any taxi or rideshare range. Be prepared to hike 3 or more miles in addition to your planned hike, as you may be dropped off at the park entrance. Schedule a ride out of the park before arriving.
