We wondered if we were on the right path as our GPS guided us through a neighborhood. but it was the way to a stunning overlook as the town sits on the gorge edge. The overlook is beside community sports and picnic areas!

There is no overnight camping at Overlook. However, there are covered picnic ares along the canyon for day use. There is also an RV area about a mile away at the White Rock visitor center (RVs only, no tent camping).
