Elk Rock provides a fine setting for camping. A modern shower building and trailer dumping station are available. The camping area has 2 loops with 21 electric sites. There is also an additional circle with 9 non-electric sites. There is also a self-dispensing firewood machine located next to the shower building. The equestrian campground features 57 sites, 42 with electrical hookups. A modern shower building, horse stalls, hitching rails, equestrian wash station and a 100′ x 200′ riding arena are available. Advance campsite reservations for half the campsites can be made through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are still available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
An excellent system of multiple use trails radiates outward from the equestrian campground areas. There are 13 miles of multi-use trails at Elk Rock. Mountain bikes are allowed on the trails. Trails are occasionally closed due to wet conditions. Contact the park office for current trail status.
Lake Red Rock and the Des Moines River provide great fishing opportunities. Elk Rock has two boat ramps, one located near the main park entrance and other is located by the park office. Bass, catfish, walleye and crappie are the most common fish caught in this area.
Roberts Creek and Cordova Park, just north of Elk Rock, are popular fishing, boating and picnic spots. They are administered by the Marion County Conservation Board.
