Ranger assigned the electric/water site the first night, it was okay but no view. Moved for the 2nd night to the primitive area, much nicer. Many of the sites with power were small, I did see a few 40'ers pull in so there are some big enough. Roads are okay for all size. Plenty of space between sites. Very quiet and dark area. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed in a water/electric site in the upper area near the restrooms. There are no trees anywhere, but lots of cactus and scrub brush between campsites. Each campsite has a covered patio with a picnic table and fire ring. Wi-fi was barely adequate to take care of e-mail and do a little web browsing. There was no Verizon cell service. The closest city is Del Rio, 40 miles away, so be sure you're well stocked when you get there. Nights are very dark, with some of the best stars I've seen in a long time. Don't miss the rock art tours! We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is lots of fantastic hiking, and the trailhead is right at the campground. The loop trail to the Rio Grande river along the canyon rim is very scenic, if a little long (7 miles). Other, shorter, hikes are very nice as well. Don't miss the ranger-led Fate Belle rock art tour, every day at 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Also, the Witte Museum runs a tour to the White Shaman rock art site every Saturday at 12:30 PM. This site isn't in the park, but it's only a mile down the road and very worthwhile.

We spent one night here on our way to West Texas. It was a nice surprise. We had a large water/electric pull-through on top of a hill. This made for great views and cool breezes. The real surprise was decent WiFi at our site (we were near a bathhouse where the WiFi antenna was located). Most Texas SPs do without WiFi and we not only had a decent signal but it was fairly speedy. Cell service was very spotty, but a short hike up to the top of the hill and it worked. The night sky here was amazing and other than Highway 90 a few miles in the distance quite quiet too. The bathrooms were a bit old and worn but mostly clean.

We'll be back here next time we're anywhere close. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lake Amistad Reservoir is near by for boating and fishing. But this is wide open Texas scrubby desert so don't wonder off. Also, you can see Mexico from this campground. In fact, as we arrived my cell phone said, "Welcome to Mexico" as it's only a few miles away.

We loved our stay here. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to have a sewer hook-up so we could stay longer. We stayed in a very spacious W/E site on the ridge with expansive views in every direction. Our site was across from the bath house, making it very convenient to use the shower facilities. The three-star for cleanliness is for the bath house. Can't speak to the toilets, but the showers at a minimum looked dingy ... perhaps because of the dim lighting. They were decent enough to use. The shower area, with two stalls would benefit from the addition of two curtains to give the occupants more privacy in the changing area ... very odd set up. We would definitely stay here again. Wi-fi available near the bath house and at the Visitor Center. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park. The sites are close together, but not overly crowded. We stayed here on our way to Big Bend. Excellent stopping point. We stayed an extra night to go on the canyon tour, which was great. The time we were there was VERY windy, which made it feel a lot colder than the temperature actually was. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Our first stay at a State Park (ever) and were pleased with our experience. Our site was W&E back-in. Rest rooms were clean but we did not use. Good spacing between sites, paved roads, gravel sites. Sites had picnic shelters as well as cleared area for tents. It got very hot during the day (late April) but cooled in the evenings. No frills but a nice stop for us. Price does not reflect State Park admission (for us $3 pp) We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Truck Camper.

On a high plateau with good views. Trails to walk and bird watching. The sites are mostly level, esp the pull throughs. We stayed there two weeks earlier and again last night. Both times the electrical went off for several hours. Last night the electric went off twice for about two hours. The wifi is so erratic as to be useless. Occasionally could see a news site for a few minutes and then lose the connection would not open email. No Verizon coverage but 4G with ATT. Probably won't stay there again. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is a quiet oasis in the West Texas desert. It is easy to get in, out, and around in the park with its wide paved roads and no trees to dodge. However the lack of trees means there is no shade from the sweltering sun in the summer, other than the shade shelters over the tables. Be sure to bring sufficient food, fuel, and firewood, as none is available near the park.

In the cooler seasons, it is a great place to camp, hike, bike, and study nature. Fate Bell Shelter, in the canyon, contains some of North America's oldest Native American pictographs and is one of the oldest cave dwellings in North America. Be sure to call or check the website for dates and times of guided hikes. There is also a nice visitor's center with nice displays, as well as an area from which to get your first view of the canyon. The Canyon Rim Trail is also a great way to see several miles of the canyon up close.

The campsites are spacious and fairly level, and range anywhere from dry camping to water and electric hookups. All have covered picnic tables and fire rings with grills. The power did go out for a couple of hours one day during our stay. There is no cell phone service, at least from Verizon, and only one over the air TV station which is in Spanish, but there is wifi in the campground, although it tends to be a slow connection. Pets are welcome anywhere in the park outside of buildings and as long as they are kept on a leash. The nearby restrooms and showers are kept very clean by the friendly camp hosts.

This is a very quiet park, and is a great place to enjoy star-gazing and nature study. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

No-hookup site, level, sites well-spaced. No Verizon signal but this park has good Wi-Fi! Too windy and cold while I was there to hike or go birding but it is a very pleasant campground. Or, at least it was the first night. The second night, a large group of noisy guys moved into the sites right next to mine and cackled and howled until late at night. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Traveling to Big Bend, we stopped at Seminole Canyon hoping to do some birding and hiking. The site we had was at the top of the hill with a great view tho it was a windy evening. We took the short bird hike near the rest room and then later that evening hiked down to the Presa Overlook. The following day we took the Windmill hike near the visitor center. Each hike we found several great birds and hike over 5 miles. It is a great campground with remote, quiet, large sites, and ours only had power and water. We would stay here again. 30 amp service was not adequate in 96 degree heat for our RV. If you prefer 50 amp you might want to reconsider unless it's somewhat chilly. We used the showers which were clean (would prefer curtains on individual showers and not entrance door). We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects parking our RV in a non electric site (used solar). Very peaceful park and well spaced locations. The WiFi is only available in certain locations but worked fine. We took the guided tour into the canyon area. It was interesting, well done, and worth the money. I think that it was $5. Hiked down to Panther Cave, nice view. Would camp there again. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Best thing that I can say is that Seminole Canyon has a very nice visitor center. Campground sites level, gravel, well spaced, but lack privacy since it is low scrub brush between. They have a covered picnic table. Warning - The campground is in full sun - no shade anywhere. Very hot is summer months. We arrived around 2pm. Our A/C could not cool our RV it was so hot. Not a good campground for the warmer months. There were no guided tours of the canyon the day we were there. Check the schedule before you go as you can not go into the canyon without a guide. There was really nothing else to do. We actually left, forfeiting our $20 camping fee that I reserved online . We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great place, especially if you like to hike and are interested in the original people of the area. The tour to the paintings wasn't available when we were here in '11, but we took it yesterday and it was a very interesting. Our guide had lots of good information. The hike is somewhat strenuous, so bear that in mind. It's hot here already in April. The Rim Hike is a good one too. Lots of birds are passing through on their way north, like us. We hope to return in a couple of years. Very friendly staff too! We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

If you are headed east or west on 90 in TX, this is a must stop for at least one night or more. The campground has 23 sites with electric and water and 8 with only water. There is also a primitive area with another 15 sites. Bath houses are clean and the shower water is hot. Each site sits among the cacti and brush with a covered picnic table and views looking out towards the canyon and even Mexico. Everyone was very friendly and there is an exhibit area at the Visitor Center and scheduled tours by the rangers at 10 and 3 Wednesday through Sunday, but one should check first. There is even a star walk some nights from the campground with a ranger. The tour into the canyon cost $5. It cost us $17 for the campsite, but that was with a Texas State Park Pass. The tour down into the canyon to view the historic pictographs was great, but we had only three other people on our tour. If we had come during spring break last week or the week before the number of people on the tour were in the high 60’s and even higher. The busy season is October through March. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.
