Jacob's Review:
   There's a place for you to put a tent up and camp, and then you can walk up the rocks! It looks like a big mountain but it is one big giant rock. There is plants growing on top of the rock and you can even camp there! Kids can even walk all the way to the top, it's not hard or scary. From the top of the mountain you can see people down on the ground and they look like little tiny people and other mountains too!
   Our Boy Scout Troop goes here a lot, it is awesome - if you live in Texas you need to go here!


Dad's Notes:
   A giant rock or monolith (like the one in Australia)! Fabled Indian spirit ground, 'spirit lights' are rumored to be seen near the top at night. Hike in tent camping! Fires at the park and camp site only (bring firewood), for the primitive camping sites - no fires (Stoves or cold camp only)! Bring Water! Camping reservations should be made 2 months in advance.

  The mountain is one solid rock. Camping, rock climbing - instruction is available on-site (with prior coordination www.mtmadness.com).

  Plan ahead - once a certain number of people enter the park, the park closes. There are picnic areas to eat at if you don't rent a space. Also, there are camping spots in the "backwoods" of the park. However, campfires are prohibited in this area.

  Pack a comfortable pair of walking shoes and bring lots of bottled water. The view from the top of Enchanted rock is breathtaking. The Texas breeze will help to cool you off once you've reached the top. The Indian legend of this place is said to be the site of human sacrifices and tribal prayers.

Jacob Tip:   Bring water and comfortable shoes, it is a bit of a hike up the big rock! (Camera!) Dad says: Be sure to check out the geology display inside the HQ's building, it is quick but very well done! For Park info tune your radio to 105.9 FM while in the park!
