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.
Please note that access to the canyon bottom and the pictographs is by scheduled guided hikes only.

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.
Tours into the canyon must be guided and in the morning.

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.

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.Undo

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.

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.

Nice state park. Well maintained park, wide spaces, good views up on the canyon rim. We would stay here again. Tours of the pictroglyphs and canyon was a bonus. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This campground was very nice but small. It would be difficult for large Motorhomes as the corners into the loops is very tight. It also is up on a hill with a nice view of the sunsets. The restrooms with showers were clean and had hot water. One draw back is that Texas charges an entrance fee into their state parks and it is a daily fee. I suggest buying their year long pass for $70 that gets everyone in your vehicle into all Texas State Parks without the fee, which ranges from $3.00 - $5.00 per person, per day. We would camp here again. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We stayed here for a couple of days and really liked this park. It's doesn't have sewer connections but the dump site is easy to get to. The rinse water is in the wrong place but that is no big deal. The pull-through sites are level but some of the others are not. We had to move from one with a great view because of excess slope. The Wi-Fi works well but will stop at times. All electric sites are 30 amps. Big rigs are not a problem here, the roads are wide and the sites easy to get in and out. There are some nice hiking trails and even some geo-caches. The museum in the office area is a must see. The park rangers are very friendly and helpful. We felt very safe here. We would stay here again.

We loved this park. The campground is located on a knoll and there are no tall trees, so the view is outstanding. We experienced a beautiful sunset and a magnificent nighttime thunderstorm in the same evening. Wi-Fi was available in most of the campground. There are hiking trails, Native American pictographs, and a really nice museum in the visitor center. This is desert country so be prepared for heat. All the staff was friendly and helpful and there were lots of Border Patrol officers around. This park is on the Mexican border at the west end of Lake Amistad. We would stay here again.

So spacious and hot, blue skies and clouds. The campground for full utilities is on a plateau that overlooks Texas hill country for miles. We can only imagine that the sunset and night sky will be stupendous. The Native American pictographs can be accessed by tour only. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

The neatest thing about this park was that we had wi-fi. The restrooms were clean and the staff was friendly. There is a nice museum and group led hikes into the canyon. I enjoyed a short hike to the rim of the canyon. We would stay here again. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
