The Rockhound State Park is a state park in Deming, New Mexico. It features the rugged slopes of the Florida and Little Florida Mountains.

Founded in 1965, the Rockhound State Park is named for the fact that the area is rich with minerals, which explains why there are tons of ghost towns in the vicinity, mostly former mining settlements. Visitors to the site can search for perlite, quartz crystals, jasper, and geodes.

The Rockhound State Park also features two main areas, the main park and the Spring Canyon Recreation Area. Here, you can enjoy hiking, wildlife viewing, camping, and picnicking. There are also some interpretive exhibits and an annual festival that takes place around the month o April, known as the Desert Alive.
