Hualapai Mountain Park was first developed during the early 1930′s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The roads, trails, picnic and camping areas, along with the stone cabins and pavilions, are still much as they were 50-years ago, giving the park it’s own unique and solid character.
The name Hualapai means “Pine Tree Folk,” and is derived from the name of the Indian tribe that once called these mountains home until they were relocated by the military in the 1870′s.
The total beauty, character and history of Hualapai Mountain Park cannot be fully expressed in words – it is something that must be experienced. Take your family and friends for a truly wholesome adventure of outdoor fun.
