“Needed more time!”

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

“Enjoyed the park”

Reviewed Oct 24, 2018

Overall Rating

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

“Absolutely amazing! We will be back!”

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. Take it slow going down and up but big rigs can definitely get in. We had both our Verizon and ATT hotspots up with our Weboost RV-65 (the newe... more

If you’re coming to see the canyon, you must camp here! What a special privilege to be able to camp down inside this beautiful canyon! The campsites are along the 8 mile loop inside the canyon. We were camping out of our SUV and assigned to the Fortress Cliff camp area site #43. AT&T cell service at our site was functional but weak. Th... more

“Beautiful park, Great musical, Getting too hot in June”

Reviewed Jun 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We wanted to see the musical "Texas" so booked to stay here during the first week that it was open (it opens 6/1). We knew it was possible that it would be getting hot, and it has been uncomfortably warm in the afternoons. When we originally did the booking, we could only get one night, but I kept on watching the booking site online a... more

“Great Spot, Great Park!”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived on a Monday and left on a Friday. Our spot was clean, fairly level though I did have to raise the "road" side of the rig about two inches. Bathrooms were very clean but seemed to lack hot water (possibly from heavy use). A fire ban was in effect, but fire rings were present. Roadrunners visited the site on more than one occa... more

The canyon is nice but we found the bathrooms dirty and we never saw a camphost clean out any site before the next rig came in. Our site had trash all around in the grasses and the site. The pad was old and uneven. The bathrooms had spiderwebs and dead bugs all over the place. There just didn’t appear to be anyone managing the campgrou... more
