Sixty-seven monolithic stone spires called sedimentary pipes accentuate multi-hued sandstone layers revealing 180 million years of geologic time. The color and beauty found here prompted a 1948 National Geographic Society expedition to name the area Kodachrome after the popular color film.

Activities include hiking, biking, photography and nearby off-highway vehicle riding areas. Overnight camping facilities, drinking water, modern rest rooms, hot showers and sewage disposal station are available. There is a country store selling camping supplies, food, snacks, gifts and other merchandise. Kodachrome is nine miles south of State Route 12 near Cannonville.
