It is an interesting formation but not too exciting. We drove past it several times and that was enough. We didn't feel the need to stop and get out of our vehicle.

Part of the head has broken off, and it sparsely resembles a camel anymore. You are more likely to spot clouds over NM that resemble a camel than this rock formation.

My wife and I would drive by this rock formation every time we would drive on the highway to visit a place to see. What is funny about this, is that there is a Casino across the street called the Camel Rock Casino.

We thought this was a nice rock form, but wait until you see Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument or Bandelier National Monument. This is just a passing rest stop compared to those awesome sites.

Not a hard climb to visit; right off the highway; and the casino by the same name is across the highway. Very interesting rest stop

This is a travel destination? Really? It's a rock formation that looks a little like a camel. You can see it fine from the road as you drive past. If you stop and waste 10 minutes to get a closer look, it won't be any...More

Really looks lie a camel. It is across the street from two neat places. The Valero gas station has the best prices in town. The Camel Rock casino is also a great place to get all you can eat crab legs on Friday night!

Not much unless you want to see different angles, this also looks like ET and was the inspiration for the model

There is no second camel. The nose fell off very recently. Thought to be due to erosion over time.
