You come here to experience the sand dunes which are really cool. We've been to a few sand dunes parks in the US and these are the best so far. Camping spots are nothing special. You're basically just pulling to the side of a loop and parking. We are 40' and only a few spots will work. Even if you register ahead of time like we did, the spots are first come first serve so if you get in later you may be out of luck finding a spot that will fit a larger rig. Very convenient to I-20. Verizon service worked fine. Good stop between El Paso and Dallas. Would stay here again. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Striking park. Close to interstate, but you'd never know it from the campsites. Gorgeous sand dunes surround RV and tent sites. The drive up to them is fairly hilly, road is well paved but narrow, and curves almost continuously. Some sites are pull-thrus of the sideways style, some trickier to get into than others for a bigger rig. Definitely much more big-rig friendly than many state parks however. Nothing much "to do" but that's the point at a park like this. Climb the dunes until you're worn out, then after nightfall sit and stargaze (big sky is full of em). You can also rent sleds and other sand toys from the office. A good value even with no discount. Hookups, restrooms and showers were clean and modern, though showers got just barely hot enough for comfort. If you think you'd enjoy a quiet park that feels like the middle of an enormous desert, make sure you arrive with plenty of supplies. Stores aren't easy access and if we'd realized how great the park would be, we'd have come prepared to stay longer. Bring your own wifi though. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.
Grills and picnic tables are provided. Easy access dump station on big loop next to bathhouse.

Nice cheap place to overnight if traveling I-20. Drive through sites that are level and have water and electric. Right off the highway and the sand dunes are a fun break. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Price does not reflect the $3 entry fee per person per day. If you have pets, watch for sand spurs. They were in our dogs paws and in the rugs in the trailer. When we made reservations, they indicated there was $3 entry fee and even after asking they indicated it was only $3, Not crowded, there was sand everywhere. Difficult to keep out of the trailer. We stayed 2 days and close to Interstate. Different with the sand dunes and no trees. Worth visit to see. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Good state park campground. Quiet and clean. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Expect sand, sun, wind. A great state park that is easy to navigate and close to I-20. My only caution would be that if the 10-15 pull off/pull through type spots are full then big rigs will have a difficult time parking in the narrow, perpendicular spots. A great spot to stop on your way through the Texas desert! We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Kids would probably love this park. We stopped overnight because we were tired and needed to stop. Sites were not designed for big rigs; we are 34 ft with a tow car, and we were really overlapping into the next site. Fortunately the park wasn't crowded. Very quiet; kind of like being in another world. No wi-fi but really good antenna TV. Sites are very narrow; we drove off into the sand and fortunately did not get stuck. Staff extremely nice and helpful. Would stay here again if we had to while traveling though west TX, but it's really not big rig friendly.

Friendly staff. Clean campground. There was nothing but sand everywhere. Our campsite was a pull-through which was merely a small pull-off on the side of the road. Since the only activity at this park besides picnicking, is sliding down the sand dunes on saucers, the park had a large number of children. The wind made it impossible to use the grill. I would like to warn people that have respiratory conditions that the air has lots of sand dust in it. My husband, dog, and myself sneezed constantly. This is a unique place which we are glad to have experienced, but we will not return. In fact, we left a day earlier than planned. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We loved this park. One camps right in among the dunes on paved sites. It is so different than most camping experiences. It was fun to walk around the park and see the different forms of dunes. The park was also covered with beautiful fall wildflowers and there is a nice walk where some are identified. The campground itself is about 2 miles off of Interstate 20, so traffic noise was not a problem. Kids were having fun "surfing" down the dunes, with boards rented at the main office.

Outstanding park to camp in - overnight or for a few days. Park Rangers are very friendly and helpful. Access roads and sites are paved. However, the pavement at the sites is narrow. You might step out into sand. The sand is not like ocean sand. It doesn't stick to shoes or dogs. The wind erases most tracks in the dunes, bur after a calm night, the sand is covered in animal tracks. Night time star viewing is spectacular. This is a very dark place! Over-the-air TV is remarkably good. Our Verizon air card worked OK, but a little slow. We would stay here again! We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This was a convenient overnight stop, just a few miles off I-20. Our pull-through site parallel the road, easy to pull into, and fairly level, some have more of a slope. Some sites are back-in and not as big. We stayed a Tuesday night, and the campground was about full, we had made a reservation and I was glad. There are restrooms with showers, a little sandy, but not bad. Kids love this place, lots of sand to slide down and play in. We are a retired couple, but enjoyed walking around the sand dunes. Our Verizon cell phone had full bars and our air card for internet worked good. Water and electric hookups worked fine. I would return if in the area. The cost is $14 for camping, $3.00 per person day fee, no charge to make a reservation. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

The sand hills are beautiful...although the weather was uncooperative. The staff were friendly and helpful. Well worth a stop. A jewel that can't be seen from the highway. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Fun place to visit, I am a little bias though. This is where I use to play as a kid in the 50's. Walking in the sand dunes is fun when it is cool. Love the wild life and nature at this campground. Definitely will stay here again when I am in West Texas. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Not a bad stopover from I-20 if you are passing through west Texas. Price paid didn't include $3 per person entrance fee. The sand dunes are nice to see and the sunset and sunrise light can be fantastic for photos. Only about half of the sites can accommodate longer rigs, and about half of those are sloped. There's a small amount of noise from I-20 (about 1.5 miles away) and an occasional train passing by I-20 as well. Verizon was weak but worked well enough outside the trailer.

The rate shown does not include $3 per person fee. Sites are level and easy to get into even with a big rig. No sewer connections but does have a dump station. Our site had 50 amps which comes in handy when running both A/C to cool off the motorhome. The sand hills are fun to walk on and watch the kids slide down. Don't stop at the main window too long or the ranger dude will fuss at you. Campground is good for a day or two in our opinion. We would not stay here again.
