Rock Creek Station was a stage and Pony Express station established in 1857 that become notorious one fateful day in 1861. On that July afternoon, James Butler Hickok killed David McCanles there and began his bloody career as a gunfighter.

Rock Creek Station State Recreation Area has a primitive horse camping area that includes 20 individual corrals that are set in groups of four, water for horse and rider, picnic tables, grills, primitive camping and a day use area. Riders can access the six miles of trails directly from the equestrian campground. All equestrian primitive camping and corrals are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
