About Massacre Rocks State Park

Historically, the area, especially what is now called Massacre Rock, was used by pioneers and dubbed the "Gate of Death" or "Devil's Gate" by emigrants from the Oregon Trail. Modern travellers have amused themselves with terms such as "beautiful," "quiet" and "relaxing" to describe the park.
Many of the names of the emigrants are engraved on large rocks, which are now protected from the weather. A picturesque picnic area surrounds the rocks and creates a desert oasis for modern travelers. Today horse owners are invited and there is also a horse resting place for car drivers on the premises.

The remains of the Oregon Trail are easily visible from the highway and rest area at the end of the park. For more information about the Oregon Trail, visit the National Park Service website or the Oregon Trails Cross-Country Trail Map.

Massacre Rocks State Park is also a popular birdwatching spot, as it is located close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Oregon Trail, and also offers scenic views of the Cascade Mountains.

Over 200 bird species have been spotted in the park, including Canada geese, owls, birds of prey and many other bird species. Mammals include deer, elk, elk, coyote, wolf, fox, bear, raccoon, pheasant, squirrel, otter, rabbit and other mammal, as well as other birds.

The desert environment produces about 300 plant species in the park, but the most common are sawbeams, Utah junipers, rabbit brushes and saw beams.
