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

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

$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. There were also many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

We didn't actually get to stay in the campsite. After driving all day from New Mexico. We arrived 20 minutes after 5:00 and were told that we missed the last 20 minute, mandatory, presentation that started at 5:00. We asked if we could check in and see the presentation in the morning. No, it was against the rules. The park ranger then suggested we drive 12 miles back to WALMART in EL PASO and stay in the parking lot for the night and come back in the morning. We asked if we could get some water to last the night as we were running pretty close to empty. No, it was against the rules. He then suggested that we go outside the gates to a private property that had a sign advertising dry camping $2.00 per night. Again, we mentioned we didn't have water. On our way out we looked at the place he had recommended, basically a dump with some old, beat up trailers on it. Very disappointed and consider the park rangers suggestions and unhelpful attitude very rude. - EJSnidal

The check-in person was very abrupt with us, although there were only a handful of folks in the campground. If you want to do the guided tour, be sure to get reservations online, since it's "privatized." We spent three nights in peace and quiet. Lots of birds around the park. We had a nice hike on the "open" area, but a permit must be picked up at the Ranger Station for that. Not a friendly campground, in my opinion, but the beauty of it far outweighs that. Sites are level with good water and power. I'd like to come back someday...better prepared. - Red Wolf Deux

Staff very helpful, easy in and out even with road construction in area so call ahead for better directions than GPS because of road work. Near freeway but not objectionable for noise. Will stay here again when passing through. - Cliffy

We stayed for one night. A lot of fulltime residents. Reasonably quiet even though near I-10 Freeway. Full hookups. Good for a one night stop. Campsites were dirt. - 4jim
May 2015 - $42.00
Interior roads were narrow, bushes needed trimmed, signage looked very old. With that being said the staff were very friendly, Wi-Fi was free and very fast. Didn't hook up to water so can't comment on pressure. 50 amp power was very good. AT&T was a good signal. The spaces were large for pull-throughs. This was a good place to get off the road for a night or 2 we stayed here in a 40 footer with 3 slides and a towed. - walt66

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

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

The Roadrunner RV park has just recently been sold and the new ownership is doing a complete remodel. The owner is replacing and updating the hook-ups and increasing the size of each pull thru. I was told the pool will be open early spring 2016. I will be back. - Rusty C.

Big mistake! Should not be a Good Sam Park. A gravel parking lot with no space between vehicles. The washrooms were filthy. Two of the four shower stalls were out of order. One of these was serving as a giant ashtray containing dozens of cigarette butts. Staff were not helpful. - rtrekker
