Rockhound State Park is a state park of New Mexico, United States, located southeast of Deming. It is named for the abundance of minerals in the area, and visitors can search for quartz crystals, geodes, jasper, perlite, and many other minerals. The park is located in the Little Florida Mountains, a range of low mountains that have become sky islands due to the arid desert between the peaks.
