Camping and Cabins:

There are 143 campsites located in the park: 44 Class AAA, 12 Class B, 13 Class C, 24 Class D (no hookups), eight Hike-in (tent only) and 42 sites with water and electric hookups in the Horse Camp that includes a bathhouse and access to the horse trails. There is also a group camp area. Camping Rates ($10-27).

The park also has 17 cabins. Cabins feature kitchens and fireplaces and are available throughout the year. Cabin Rates ($115-180)

Amenities:

Devils Den offers many hiking and backpacking trails and three horse trails. Backpackers can take a primitive trail hike, but must get a free permit before hiking in these areas.

The most popular trail is called the Devil's Den Trail. It is 1.5 miles long and features Devil's Den Cave, Devil's Ice Box, Twin Falls and Cold Springs. The cave is available for exploration, but unless there is a special event where a park interpreter is leading a group, it's not a guided tour and only available "at your own risk."

A park cafe and store are available in the summer months. A park grocery is open year round.
