“Very small but clean rest area”

Reviewed May 27, 2018

Overall Rating

Passed through driving a minivan. If you park on the side where the trucks park then you could let out slide on the side facing north. I-10 runs east/west. We were westbound. Our sales taxes fund this rest area. Even though it is old, it is maintained.

The ladies and men’s restrooms were clean with flushing toilets and running water. There was a fresh water spout that was easily accessible to the public.

This was the first rest stop with restrooms from where Hey 290 and I-10 junction so it gets a lot of traffic.

I think like a car or van dweller. For my needs, this rest stop was excellent. Put up your blackout shades and sleep headphones and rest so you are safe on the road. R’vers are looking for a temporary home base and this is not the place so they rate it lower.

It was 100 degrees in late May so solar would work.

There is a place to dump trash bags. On a busy Memorial Day weekend it was exceptionally clean. If ever you see a dirty Texas rest stop please report it to the state. The vendor will correct the situation but of course the whistleblower won’t be there to see the solution.

This Sonora Texas arearest stop has restrooms that are open to the outdoors so they will be hot or cold depending on the weather.

If you have two slides then no, do not open them because the road is too narrow.

The rest area has 2 picnic areas and one is designated wheelchair accessible. The covered picnic tables were all metal and maintained. The grill was clean. Relax and enjoy your journey. I deducted points for site quality and noise for the sake of r’vers who want to put out slides.

“Lots of trucks, very little room. ”

Reviewed Jan 06, 2018

Overall Rating

This is not a typical rest stop with a large parking area but rather a semi circular loop, just (barely) wide enough for trucks and cars to parallel park on both sides. The ladies room, while not clean, was at least not nasty and there was toilet paper. Not so for the mens room, which gets a lot more use. Dont even think about putting out slides. This is a busy, busy safety/rest stop with lots of trucks coming and going all night. But it's free, legal, and we felt safe. If you're not too tired, continue west to the next rest area, which is much bigger.
