Stargazing at American Avenue Trailhead Parking Lot

Oracle State Park

Ongoing Daily

The main entrance gate to the park off Mt. Lemmon Road closes by 4 p.m daily. For those visitors wishing to stay late and enjoy the night skies of our International Dark Sky Park, plan on parking at the American Avenue Trailhead Parking Lot.

The area is accessible nightly for stargazing, but camping is not allowed -in tent or vehicle- and please no campfires.

Please register at the self-pay station to pay the parking fee of $7 (or $12 after 10 p.m.), or to log your annual state park pass.
