6 Parks near El Paso, Texas
Oct 2013 - $30.00
We only stayed one night just passing through, but the campground was well maintained as far as we could tell. Would stay here again. Staff was courteous and the price was right! - Retired and Ready

OK for a quick overnight but I wouldn't want to spend long. $20 is the normal rate. Lots of long term older units. Showers are an extra $5 per. - Valhalla360

Definitely don't stay if you need any kind of hook-ups... I have a 44' toy hauler and was able to get in and out okay. Hard to find long flat area but the park rangers didn't care where I parked. (Only one other camper entire park). I give it. 10 because of the beauty and quiet and closeness to I-10. Great place for an overnight stay. I will be back for sure. Tough getting into entrance crossing traffic with my rig but I managed. - xplorers

Nice spot up on a hill, but this is really a tent camping park. There are no dedicated RV sites except for a parking area which is extremely un-level. $8 fee does not include mandatory daily per person entry fees, unless you have a Texas State Parks Pass. - silvertube

Staying at this park is basically like boondocking. There is no electricity or sewer. There is no water at all in the park. We spent the previous night at the American RV Park behind camping world just a few miles away. We filled up our water tank here. The park is on Trans-Mountain highway only a mile or two off Interstate 10. This was the camping of my childhood. We were the only campers in the park for 3 days. The park is open from 8 am until 5 pm. Once you are checked in the ranger will come by and give you a code. We felt very very safe as there is no way to get around the gate. Our site was fairly level and nestled between 2 hills. We could watch the lights of EL Paso below us and the stars above. The desert mountains prevented any city or highway noise from disturbing our sleep. There is some great hiking in the park & the road good for biking but the trails would be tough on mountain bikers. Franklin Mountain State Park is the largest urban park in the country. There is no shade but picnic tables have shelters. Our 3 nights here was a nice ending to our 3 month stay in El Paso. Would highly recommend if you are just passing through but spend a few days exploring this huge state park. - travelnurse

Sites were nice, level, with concrete, electric and water. Very clean restrooms with hot showers. Our site was in trees. Sites were along some of the granite boulders. Very scenic and peaceful. Gates close at 6 PM, but no need to go anywhere, as area is so pretty. Other reviews mentioned climbing, walking, biking area. - USA16RVer

Loved this park, only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Hope to return some day. Park orientation film & dissertation mandatory before exploring, can see why its necessary due to previous vandalism to sacred Indian property & delicate environment. Enjoyed climbing the rocks & searching for pictographs & tanks. Beautiful setting at campsites. Park gates close at 6PM & campers cannot get in or out till morning, presumably for security reasons due to close proximity to Mexican border. Felt safe here. Great place to visit, even for a day trip. - Rolling Regal
Dec 2015 - $14.00
Gorgeous setting. World class bouldering. Heated restrooms with hot showers. Elec and water at sites.
Very tight regulation because it is sacred Native American land. We are lucky to be allowed on site at all after the desecration that has occurred in past.
The Texas authorities now in charge are extremely clear about the tight regulation, and you can't possibly get a reservation or get into the park without being made aware of the requirements.
Gate locks at 6 each night, and you cannot come and go after that. We will be back (-: - Phx24J

This was ok for a quick overnight. Flat sites. No trees on our row but there were some on other rows. A bit tight to park our 40-ft motorhome plus Jeep and also narrow, but we had the 50 amp electric and water we needed. Lots of construction in the area made getting here hectic and frustrating, but construction will go away at some point. - DebGA

Nice park in a not so pretty area, tough to find and get to with all the road construction. Tare the next freeway exit and turn back on the service road follow the signs. We received 50% off with our Passport America discount, the young man who checked us in was super fast it took all of 5 minutes. All hook ups worked well site was nice and level. - tazman1953

Kind of hard to get to with all the construction in the area. We had a long level gravel pull through. All the utilities worked fine. Would stay here again. - arkietraveler
May 2015 - $21.00
Stopped here for a one night stay as we were passing through. It is on the west outskirts of El Paso. There has been some road improvements lately so it's kind of a weird way to get there if you follow your GPS.
Gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. He was a fountain of information for things to do in El Paso.
The campground itself is mostly gravel, both pull through and back in sites are available. Level sites, neat and clean. Bath/shower houses were clean as well.
They do have any indoor pool and laundry, both of which we did not utilize. They also have a small dog run.
It is close to the highway, but with the heat and the air conditioner running constantly we did not notice it. - Kgtraveler

Long pull through sites on gravel. They were very helpful in the office and strongly recommended that we NOT visit Mexico as it was not safe. They also have a repair facility located on the property, and we found their price to repair a problem more than fair. The cable was not very good, so we used our satellite. We would use this place again for a one night stay only as there is not much to see or do in the area. - rolling homeless

We pulled into the park and immediately realized it was not suitable. There were no other RVers in sight, only full time older trailers and the place looked quite run down. There were speed bumps about every 50 ft. which is terrible for driving a motorhome towing a car. Access to the place was awful through a large construction zone. We did not stay and cannot rate the staff or facilities properly. - camperme

The new name for this park is the Anthony/El Paso KOA. Basically it is a huge gravel parking lot with no grass or trees. However it has a great view of the mountains to the east and is far enough away from I-10 that there was only faint traffic noise. The layout was spacious enough that navigating with our 35ft 5th wheel was no problem. Almost all the sites are pull thru. Discounts off the full price of $35 are available for AAA or KOA members. - JackSchmotzer
Feb 2016 - $35.00
This place is mostly a gravel parking lot, but the services are being actively upgraded. Seems to be quite a few long-term residents. No shade so a satellite connection is easy. The sites are jammed in quite tightly, but access was OK for our 36 foot fifth wheel. The laundry was goo, clean and had three sets of washers and dryers. We stayed for three days doing some maintenance, and the co-located RV parts place was helpful. We might stay again. - wandrr

Stayed there 2 nights. Service department was a big help for repairs. They told us that they are under new ownership as of August 1 2015. We noticed a lot of remodeling going on and they are installing new electric 50amp and 30amp. We will stay there again. - Bigcountryboys
