About Bilgers Rock:

Rock City!!! There is walk from your car to the top of the rock access, unlimited boulder problems, great areas to slap slings around trees for top roping, a cave (called ICE), great car camping, even an ampitheater if you would need to proclaim loudly what you climbed that day. Very unique sandstone formations have huge blocks with alleys about as wide as person and sometimes up to 80 feet high, it is like walking around a city. Check out the sign at the parking area, the people that bought the 20 some acres and preserved it as a PUBLIC park are listed. Historical carvings can be found from 1900 to 1930, including a large earth, goddess, and quotation "the world is looking to us" by HWL. A very interesting and fun place to climb. Camping is availble through the Bilger's Rock Assoc. Rates are $5 witout electric, $10 with ( I would suggest with, it is not meant as the hookup for a motorhome as in State Parks, but gives you juice to the pavilion, bath, ampitheater, lights along the geology trail and std. outlets for car camping bliss)
