Where is Red Rock State Park?
Originally the site was owned by the Kawaiisu Indians. Later, the site was owned by Jack Frye, president of TWA. He and his wife lived there in the Smoke Trail Ranch.
Today the house is called “House of Apache Fires”. After his death, his wife took care of the property for years. In 1980, a group of hikers walking along Oak Creek were told that this was private property. Among the hikers was then Governor Bruce Babbitt. Because he was upset that land along the river was privately owned, after some land swaps, the area was rededicated to a State Park and has been open since October 19, 1991. Financially it does not look good for the Park. In June 2010 it was to be closed together with other Parks. An interview on the closure is below in the Video. However, the Park was able to save itself from one year to another through donations.
