Description

This is the signature rock formation of Garden of the Gods. The Kissing Camels are one of the most photographed rock formations in the whole park. The Kissing Camels unsurprisingly look like two camels kissing. The formation can be seen from the highway and the parking lot.

On the Road: Best viewed from the parking lot.

Family Friendly: It is easy to view, and kids will have fun trying to spot the kissing camels.

Gem Type: Rock Formation
