DO NOT ARRIVE LATE, the gate is locked after 10PM even if you pre-pay. Once you get checked in, the Park Rangers will give you the gate code, but only if you check-in and stay at least one night after check-in. We stayed while it was snowing and there was electric and dump, but no water. The Park Rangers did not mention the water was... more

I stayed in their newer campground Juniper, site was level-ish, ramada over picnic table & brand new showers. The views were beautiful & biking/hiking trails were great. Walked the dog every morning on a 2 mile loop, then took mt bike out in the afternoon, fun whoop-dee-do trails!! I was nervous about driving my older 28' Class A down ... more

Don't let the 10% downgrade going in scare you, just gear down and take it slow. We went in and with a F350 pulling a 43' toyhauler, no problems at all. We stayed in the Mesquite Campground and loved it there, very peaceful. Didn't use the bath facilities so can't comment on them.

Date: 9/18/2018 This is a very nice park. Only stayed one night. Electric hookup, level site. Met lots of nice people who said the hikes are wonderful. Plan to stay again this spring.
Came without reservations, Rangers did not answer phones so we took a chance driving in that there would be an open site.

Within 1 hour of being set up, several wild turkeys and 3 deer strolled through our site. Internet connectivity was poor in Hackberry, which was an issue since we wou... more

If you're nervous about driving or riding in big rigs on steep, winding roads, you will NOT like the road down into the canyon. Large RVs can make it just fine, though, but I would recommend using your toad as a pilot vehicle to alert the RV driver of oncoming traffic which can make some of the corners very, very tight. At check-in,... more

We spent two nights there in October. We bought the Texas State Park pass for $70 which provided us free access ($5 per day per person) and 1/2 off our second night ($12 savings). So, we saved $32 on our first visit. We tried to stay here one other time but they were full. This time, arriving on a Monday, they had many open spo... more

Stayed here for work to gather film of the park for educational resources. We had an amazing time. Stayed in the newest campground in our 45ft fifth wheel. Definitely a great area for big rigs.
