Castle Rock

Old town of Castle Rock should not be missed!

Castle Rock

I live here. Cute Main Street, small town feel. The star on top of Castle Rock is only lit from right before Christmas until after the National Western Stock Show (held in January). [F, 03/18/2015]

Giant stone mesa worth visiting, public park with another giant star.

[Scott Duval, 12/01/2014]

It's a stretch of the imagination that this resembles a castle, but they named the town after it. The star and American flag are on top.
