Atlatl Rock

An atlatl (at’-lat-l) is a device used for launching a spear; usually a short cord would around the spear so that when thrown into the air the weapon will rotate.  The ancient Indians used these weapons and they are depicted in the petroglyphs (rock carvings) located at Atlatl Rock.  This area has outstanding petroglyphs that should not be missed.

The Atlatl Campground has 43 campsites, some with water and power hook-ups and some primitive.

Facilities:  Campground, Restrooms, Parking, Interpretive Trail, and Hiking Trail
