$18 per night was for a level gravel 50-amp electric and water site in the Red Arroyo campground. We do have the TX Parks Pass we purchased for $70 (it allows access to all 90 TX state parks) last year-otherwise it's $18 per night plus a $4 per person daily entry fee. They do have a weekly rate of $100. Sites are very generous with a covered picnic table, fire ring, and pedestal BBQ unit. Some sites have large nut trees on them. Many types of birds were flitting about. The night sky is very dark considering the campground's location to San Angelo. All sites had a 360° view of the surrounding prairie. All the facilities were in great condition. There are miles of multi-use trails. The park is gated after hours but they give you the combination if you're camped there. This campground is located about four miles from San Angelo where every amenity is available. The park does have public Wi-Fi access but it was slow at times. AT&T and Verizon service was three-four bars of 4G LTE. We received all the major networks on over-the-air TV stations. There were also many radio stations.

$16 per night was for a level asphalt 50-amp electric and water site. We did have the TX Parks Pass we purchased for $70 (it allows access to all 90 TX state parks) last year-otherwise it's $16 per night plus a $7 per person daily entry fee. They allow a maximum of three nights' stay but they will extend it for up to another three nights on your last morning, space permitting. Sites are generous with a covered picnic table and surrounded by heavy desert vegetation. No wood or charcoal fires are allowed but propane grills are OK. Many types of birds were flitting about. All sites had a 360° view of the surrounding desert and mountains. All the facilities were in great condition. The main attraction is Hueco Tanks which are mountains that are great for free climbing-if you're into that. There are walking trails that are accessed along the perimeter of the campground and permits must be obtained for either walking or climbing. Some areas of the park can only be accessed with a guide. The park is gated and no one is allowed in or out after 6 p.m. (except for emergencies). A 15-minute orientation video must be viewed before being allowed to set up on a site. This campground is located about 12 miles east of the outskirts of El Paso where every amenity is available. The park does have public Wi-Fi access but it was slow at times. AT&T service was two bars of 3G but receiving calls was spotty. Verizon coverage was three bars of 4G LTE. We received all the major networks and several other OTA TV stations.

$6 per night including tax was the Golden Age passport rate for a night. There are water spigots throughout the campground as well as a two-lane dump station. The primitive site included a level concrete parking pad with a small patio area. There was also a pedestal BBQ unit and picnic table on each site. The generous-sized-for-National Park Service-campground site was surrounded by an area of sand and rocks with beautiful desert vegetation. Sites were large enough to allow for slide-outs, awnings, and the parking of a second vehicle. Roads throughout the campground are paved. There were many hummingbirds, curve-billed thrashers, black-throated sparrows, Gambel's quail, and butterflies flitting around the campground. Our site had a 360° view of the surrounding cactus-filled desert and mountains. This campground is located five miles north of the Mexican border and miles away from all conveniences-it's very quiet at all times and dark at night. Generator use was limited to two two-hour periods-8 to 10 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. There are solar showers at three of the restrooms. All the facilities were in immaculate condition. The monument area offers plenty of outdoor activities including scenic driving loops, hiking, biking, and picnicking. AT&T service was three bars of 2G and Verizon service were three - four bars of 4G LTE. There was no over-the-air TV. We received one English speaking radio station and several Mexican stations.

Two trails allow hikers, bikers, and horses; there are an additional three trails open to hikers only. There are Utah junipers and pinyon pines on each site as well as other low growing plants. Cannonville is the nearest town and it has one small grocery store, a post office, a motel, a KOA campground, and not much else. Cell service and Internet of any kind were nonexistent. There were no OTA TV stations and only one weak radio station. If you like peace and quiet, this is the place for you. OHVs must be “street legal.” Beware, there is a lot of iron in the water.

$25 per night was for a mostly level gravel site with 50 amp electric, water, picnic table, fire ring, and pedestal BBQ. This campground is located alongside the sparkling waterfowl-filled Wide Hollow Reservoir. The park has petrified trees scattered along their main hiking trail. The live trees still had leaves on them during our stay and there are tall brush-like plants along most of the perimeter of the reservoir. Escalante, the nearest town, has the basic general store and several restaurants. AT&T cell service was minimal but could be used for calls and texts. Verizon service was nonexistent. Free Internet access via the park’s Wi-Fi worked well. We received 23 OTA TV stations and several radio stations.

$5 per night, using our Golden Age Passport half-price senior discount, was for a level asphalt primitive site with picnic table and pedestal BBQ. The Fruita campground has many large trees, which offer plenty of shade in the summer for the generous sites. The campground is located in a valley and has a spectacular 360° view of the surrounding geologic formations. Hiking, biking, touring the park via automobile, and picking fruit in season are the main activities in the gorgeous Capitol Reef National Park. Torrey, the nearest town, has the basic general store and several restaurants (but all will be closed during the winter). AT&T cell service was available starting at Panorama Point and continued into Torrey. Verizon service is nonexistent. For free Internet access we found the Travel Center (closed November – March) in Torrey to be very welcoming and comfortable as they have table and chairs inside and outside—just sign their guest register to help them continue to receive funding. There were no OTA TV stations. We received a couple radio stations in the campground.

Our $28 per night was a stay-two-nights-and-get-the-third-night-free deal (they do accept Good Sam and Passport America one night discounts). We had a level gravel site with full hookups but no picnic table or fire ring. The campground has many large trees scattered throughout so some sites have some shade during the day. There is a curbside grass area to share with your neighbor. The sites are fairly close to one another on the street-side but you don’t feel cramped, as there is still plenty of room for a 40’ motorhome and tow vehicle lengthwise. The park staff was very friendly and helpful. Many activities are available nearby. Montrose is the nearest city and it has most everything anyone might need. AT&T and Verizon services were both acceptable. We used the park Wi-Fi for internet access and it worked well. There were six OTA TV stations.
