An atlatl (at’-lat-l) is a device used for launching a spear; usually a short cord wound 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 has water and power hookups and others are more primitive.
Facilities: Campground, Restrooms, Parking, Interpretive Trail, and Hiking Trail
