What a great and easy to access natural wonder. Right by the highway you can't miss it. We stayed overnight in the campground. $7.70 for our family of 4. No power or water but there is a toilet and campfires allowed in designated campfire areas....More

25 mins from Wycliffe Well. Great for photos and an easy walk around. I believe you can stay here in the camp ground but didn't see any amenities. I spent 3 hours walking around and had a great time.

You may well think that these rocks have been placed in position by hand but it is the result of soil erosion that has exposed them. A remarkable sight.

Unmanned site with no facilities other than what is mentioned above. Follow road round to back of the Marbles where there is a honesty box with envelopes. Lovely isolated spot, very quiet when we were there.
