Dark Sky Viewing Info
Oracle State Park was designated as an International Dark Sky Park in 2014. This prestigious designation recognizes Oracle State Park as an exceptional place to view and contemplate the wonders of our night sky. Oracle is far enough away from most light pollution sources making the Milky Way visible, along with many other celestial objects.
Although the main park entrance closes to visitors in the evening, those who wish to enjoy the skies can use the American Avenue Trailhead for 24-hour access. Visitors will need to call ahead to make a reservation for this access - a gate code will be provided. Please call (520) 896-2425 for the four-digit code.
Note: Overnight camping is not allowed at the park at this time.
