This park is easy to get to and fun to hike. The rock formations are amazing. It's a reasonable place even if your fitness level is lacking. A good pair of sneakers or walking shoes is all you need. And some bug spray.

Hike around the rocks at your leisure. We spent a very pleasurable 3+ hours hiking, exploring, and taking photos. Lots to look at in the gift shop as well.

I believe there are a few grills and there are a few places near the parking lot that you can set up. There are not grills or places within the park.

How much time should we budget for visiting this attraction? We are thinking of using it as a stretch-our-legs break on a driving day.

I'd say anywhere from an hour to 3 hours. It's not a big park, but the rock formations are quite interesting. There are steep steps to navigate. There is a rock museum in the office/visitor center. Worth a look too.
