This park is a sacred landscape that has special spiritual significance for the Blackfoot people who hunted and travelled the Great Plains for generations. The traditional culture of the Blackfoot is based on a long, intimate relationship with the land and this landscape is still part of that tradition.
The First Nations petroglyphs (carvings) and pictographs (paintings) that cover the sheer sandstone cliffs are protected here as a legacy to this spiritual connection. The archaeological preserve was established in 1977 to ensure protection of one of the largest concentrations of rock art on the North American Plains.
The park is home to a range of year-round recreational activities including camping, day use area, fishing, wildlife viewing and more.
