Public Hours & Fees
The Park is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, from 8 AM to 5 PM year round. The Park entry fee is $7 per vehicle or free with an Annual Pass.

What to Bring & What to Wear...
While the Oracle climate is moderate, fall through spring temperatures can drop to freezing in the late afternoons and evenings. And while temperatures are 6 to 12 degrees cooler than in town, the desert sun is strong, even in winter. Trails too are unpaved and oftentimes demanding.
Therefore, visitors are strongly recommended to wear hats, sunscreen, good hiking shoes and carry water. During non-summer months, extra layers and jackets are necessary for later in the day.
Where to Eat etc. ...
The Park does not sell food or snacks. Visitors are welcome to bring food into the Park but must adhere to the Parks carry-in carry-out policy regarding trash. Picnic tables are provided but no grilling is permitted. Visit the Oracle Community Guide for a list of nearby eateries, food stores and green markets, as well as B&Bs and shops.
