Cost is $2 a day but it’s free with your National Park Pass! Gates open 8 AM and close at 8 PM. My only complaint was that there were no fire rings! No fires allowed, only propane. The train someone else complained about are not close. They didn’t both us at all. Beautiful, mowed, tree covered sites with cement picnic table on a... more

“Trains, trains, and MORE trains...”

We tent camped here for one night in late-October. We should have viewed the location on Google maps prior to settling in for the night. We probably would have noticed the close-by train tracks. We did get to experience the horns ALL night long, and even felt the rumble. Not a massage...just a huge irritation. On a positive note... more

Stayed free with my AtB pass. Mile drive down a pretty decent gravel road from gate to campground. Gate info is correct posted by others. Very quiet, spacious with cement picnic tables on concrete pad. Sites are pretty level. Pit outhouse that I didn't bother checking out. Only downside is it's in a remote location with no nearby towns... more

“Beautiful nature”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

We stopped here to spend the night before our reservation in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. There was one other site occupied (with a tent), so we had our choice of almost all the sites. It was pretty warm in the afternoon when we arrived (100F) but the breeze made it bearable outside in the shade. Beautiful dark skies at night. Birds si... more

“Sites have tables and central vault toilets ”

2 mile interpreted trail that describes prairie environment. Not much for me to do here but the camp sites are well maintained. I camped on 16 February 2018. There is an automatic gate that closes at 6pm. You can get out but no one can get in. Not sure if time changes in summer.
