The Red Cliffs Recreation Area is inside the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area, which has been set aside to conserve, protect, and enhance ecological, scenic, wildlife, recreational, cultural, historical, natural, educational, and scientific resources. Please respect these resources and stay on designated trails.
Access Note: Access to the Recreation Area is through tunnels that restrict vehicle size to less than 12 feet in height or width.
Parking Note: Parking for day use is extremely limited (33 spots only) and vehicles with trailers must park at the White Reef Trailhead (located approximately 1.5 miles south of the Recreation Area and the first right turn after the second tunnel). During Spring and Fall, the most popular seasons to visit the Recreation Area, traffic control measures may be used, causing some visitors to be turned away for lack of parking. Plan accordingly.
Camping Note: Camping is prohibited in the day use area and up to one mile from the recreation area.
