“Beautiful free campsites! ”

Reviewed May 01, 2019

Overall Rating

This campsite is everything you could hope for! It’s free, clean, beautiful views, and did I mention free? At this campsite we both had good service and were able to hot spot with no problems. You can walk down to the boat ramp to get to the water. It can get a little windy but it’s nice and keeps you cool during a hot day. There’s a d... more

We stopped here on our way out west on 4/25/19 (well 4/26 since we arrived at 3 am). Since it was dark we took the only empty spot we found in the first loop on the left before the boat ramp. I’m not sure if there were more sites but this had about 10 maybe? The bathrooms/showers were in great shape, working and fairly clean for a free... more

“Scenic overlook”

We pulled in really late (around 11pm) and ended up sleeping in the car. Woke up to beautiful scenic views of the lake. Talk about wow. The wind definitely makes it colder than it is, but wasn't too bad. Plenty of parking even if you don't get an area with a table. The bathrooms have showers and there is a water spigot around back. I b... more

Called the Ranger to make sure website info was correct and to get directions. I told him I was on my motorcycle and he directed me to a beautiful spot over looking Lake Meredith. Both grounds and facilities where very clean. Only 2 other camper but, lots of ground between us.

My son and I stopped here for the night on our way west. The campground has wonderful views from all the sites. The bathroom and showers are clean and work well. There was only one spot left when we got there. There were several travel trailers and RV's but they were all small so there were no problem's with space. We planned to hammoc... more

Camped 10/17/17. We got lucky - it was not windy during our stay. However, we arrived at sunset, and the mosquitoes were pretty bad, but after dark by the campfire, they didn't bother us. We were treated to an absolutely beautiful sunset. The views are gorgeous! Our site was level, and as noted, you park on the road and the co... more

Stopped here in our way East. The sunset overlooking the lake (Reservoir) was beautiful. It was a little difficult to find but worth it. The town left a little bit to be desired. As others have said it’s a bit windy. We were there in September. There is a nearby town with a good Walmart and gas

Here's the thing -- this place is GORGEOUS. The views are great, the spots are spacious, the grounds are clean. The fresh water and dump are conveniently located at the entrance to the campground. Each spot has a garbage can, picnic area, and shade structure. It's quiet at night. ....BUT THE WIND IS INTENSE. The whole campground ... more

The NPS calls this place an oasis on the high plains... and they aren't kidding. After endless cattle ranches and oil fields through Texas, this place really is an awesome respite. The photos speak for themselves, so I'll just add my $0.02 from our experience. It's windy. Very windy. Probably won't be getting out your awnings or can... more

With the good comes the creepy. We stopped here after passing through Amarillo. The breeze made the June Texas heat bearable! Sites, while small and not private, are free and offer permanent pavilions (great for hammocks), charcoal grills, picnic tables and fire rings. We stayed in June 2017 and almost all the sites were full. Grea... more
