Granite Dells, Prescott, Arizona

Description

Sit atop the granite rocks and take in the weird and wacky wonderland of rounded granite pinnacles around you! It's hard to believe this place is real! It's more like a place you would see in a Dr. Suess book.
You can rent a kayak here at the park and paddle amongst the tall columns of granite. There are also rock climbing areas.
Don't miss out on this otherworldly place while you're in Arizona!
Note: It can be very, very hot here, even in spring. But it's well worth seeing!
The town of Prescott, nearby, is a good place to stop for a meal.

Directions

From Prescott, take Highway 89 North, and turn right on Hillsdale Rd, to Watson Lake Park. There are two large parking lots. The Granite Dells are right there at the shoreline.

What a beautiful landscape! Amazing what millions of years of erosion can do! I enjoyed climbing up the rocks with my son.
