Stayed first 3 nights using Passport America, this rate was $23 i think. Joined Thousand Trails while here and extended 4 more nights. Nice facilities, many activities. Main hall with the admin offices, separate building for cards/games/pool/ping pong/exercising. More of a snow bird park than simply a camping, state park atmosphere.

Date of Stay:

Large parking lot with spaces down two sides. Close walk (or drive) to the beach. Actually quite a bit closer to Corpus Christi than Port Aransas. If hookups aren't essential for you, I'd suggest the Padre Island National Seashore campground, it's a short drive. Actually closer if you're coming thru Corpus. Cell service was good here, not so good at Padre Island campground.

Date of Stay:

No hookups. Near the beach. Large paved parking lot environment with a little room between sites, grass. Lots of generator noise, seemed especially in the evening. Peaceful otherwise. Easy distance to beach. Would camp here again.

Date of Stay:

Nice park. Gravel sites, back in, grass, trees. Deer in the evening come close to eat grass. Shower good.

Date of Stay:

No hook ups, but nice desert type campground. Convenient to Del Rio. Lake is fairly distant as water is way down. Very quiet and peaceful. No issues with security. Would stay again. Gravel, smooth roads in and out, gravel campsites with table and shelter. Pit toilets.

Date of Stay:

This park is way out there by itself. A real long way. Long drive but the remote feeling is part of the appeal, not for everyone I imagine. Pleasant campground, trees, grass. Nice camp hosts. What made it worth the drive for me was the tremendous night time sky. The ranger talk claimed it was the darkest sky in the lower 48 states. Exceptional view of the milky way. I know nothing about astronomy but enjoyed the bright, clear view.

Date of Stay:

One night stay. The springs pool area built by the CCC is nice, very unique. In the summer, swimming would be great. Desert, natural landscaping in camping loop. Quiet. Nice campground. we had a pull through.

Date of Stay:

Sites with water/electric were full. The rate is for an undeveloped, flat dirt area where they allow RV's if you don't need hookups. Plenty of room to park/turn around. Train track nearby but only 1 train in evening and another later that night. This park is convenient to I-25 and OK for one or two night stay. Visitor center had a well stocked library for trading. Wasn't many conveniences nearby.

Date of Stay:

Rate I gave based on monthly rate of $495 which includes electric. There are more long term residents than travelers coming and going but we don't see that as a problem, not a lot of visiting between residents. We have lived in Albuquerque many years before becoming full timers and return here for 1 to 2 months at a time staying in this park. While traveling we select a different type of park, this is a basic urban park. Park is approximately 5 - 10 minutes from Osuna exit off I-25. Not sure why people have a problem with the office and manager, I never have. I find him easy to get along with. We've never needed reservations unless it's balloon fiesta and then rates and availability are much different. It is all gravel w/ cement pad but pretty level. Noise is minimal, some distant train noise occasionally. I've used the pools, indoor and out, a number of times with grandkids and always been happy with them. Centrally located if your seeing the sites.

My issue with this park is getting into it. You don't have any idea of what the park or your space looks like until after you've paid. Very small parking area for check in, would have been difficult for a second customer to park and come in, we have a 35' fifth wheel. From the office to the spaces is an uphill, double blind driveway. Sharp right and a continuing right. Only wide enough for one way traffic. The park is unpaved and rough. Dirt/Gravel. Electric on wrong side, water distant (used 2 hoses). Employee gave us sewer, we said we didn't need it, she continued saying it was the best space to get into and that it was only $2. Couldn't have reached sewer if we needed to and it was just an open pipe. Can only imagine our difficulty if we had insisted on another space. Right next to storage shed. Price seemed very high for this park but in this area may be consistent. Would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Right off Highway, pretty noisy. Nothing about park justifies nightly rate. Sites along side each other. It's fine just priced higher than felt it should be, but that's me. Camp host was nice.

Date of Stay:

Rate was electric only, more for sewer. Was told an additional $5 if we wanted to use dump station. Quite a bit of road noise. No shade, typical side by side sites. Convenient to highway and routes to Mt. Rushmore and vicinity. Sturgis bike rally in progress so was fortunate to find a space. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Free camping. No hook ups. No frills but adequate spaces, some pull through. Was quiet, easy to find and get in and out. City worker came by with a sheet of rules and envelope for a donation if we chose. Nice of community to provide this campground, would support them if we were through here again. Free firewood available.

Date of Stay:

Great park, large cottonwoods and grass. Great view of Devils Tower. Our rig is 35', only a few of the sites would fit large rigs. Free fire wood was nice.

Date of Stay:

Convenient to freeway. Was quiet for us. Nearby streets. We didn't notice traffic. Nice swimming pool. Mostly a permanent mobile home / RV setups. Would stay again for an overnight.
