Very spacious sites, pull throughs very lengthy, dump station easy access. The lake was basically non-existent due to the drought, so not much to do at the park. Close to town, staff very friendly. Nice covered patio/picnic table at the site. Rate cited is with the Texas State Parks Pass. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We really enjoy San Angelo state park. We have been on both the north side and south side of the park. There are pull-through sites on the south side - lots of flat open space, there's always a breeze, and we enjoy watching the birds and the ground squirrels. We've also camped on the north side where there are large trees that provide shade. The park is quiet at night and the park rangers are always friendly and helpful.

Was surprised to discover that the lake had been dry for sometime since my last visit to this park. The conditions are clearly budget cut related. The park is still clean, spacious, level, and home to the friendliest state park staff I've met in 40 plus years of camping. I was in good spot for WiFi service even though I was told not to expect it where I was to be located. The biggest disappointment is the company that used to do trail rides through the park no longer does them. You can still bring your own horses, but it was a feature I used to love about this park. San Angelo has grown up enough now that you are with 3 miles of major shopping and restaurants, but you'd never know it from inside the park. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

There are 2 campgrounds - Northern (with shade), Southern (biggest) no shade. Both campgrounds are flat, paved, clean and spacious. Wi-Fi hotspots are present - just ask. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean and heated. Rate $20/night plus $4 per person per day park fee if you do not have a Texas State Park card. Staff very friendly. The advertised herd of bison was small, 5 calves and 4 females. We didn't see the longhorns (grazing far from view). The petroglyphs were not open for viewing unless you are in an organized tour (hugely disappointing) and we were told the dino tracks were also not available to view. We were lucky enough to have a very knowledgeable Ranger take us. They are Permian tracks (Dimetrodon) and predate dinosaurs. There are only a view places in the world these have been found and San Angelo has the largest area, a long dried riverbed. The tracks are plentiful and fabulous but totally covered in dirt with weeds sprouting from many. This is a world attraction and there is no funding to provide any sort of protection program - tragic. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

If you are camping here for the lake you should be aware that it is dry as of late Sept. 2013. There is a lot of info on the web and in the brochure about swimming, fishing etc. but there is no water in the lake. The boat ramp is overgrown with trees. Otherwise it's a quiet park with a number of hiking trails. Sites are very spacious and have covered shelters. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This made a great overnight stop for us, convenient to the freeway and supplies, yet still giving a feeling of being out in nature, although “nature” in this area is a bit on the desolate side. We had the campground practically to ourselves, possibly due to the low level of the lake. Our site was easy to get into. Staff was very friendly. Not one of the prettier Texas parks, but more than adequate for our needs. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Great place for an overnight. Very convenient to the highway but far enough away that you don't get traffic noise. Helpful host. Clean, well maintained sites. I camped in the South Area. If you have a big rig you might want to check out the North area. The sites in the South are widely spaced and private. I would camp here again if passing by.

We stayed here overnight and bought a Texas State Park pass in the morning which took care of the $4 a day entrance fee. We were serenaded the next morning by turkeys, about four Toms looking after a large flock of Hens. The place was clean and quite. It was a Thursday night and beside one other person in a trailer we were to only ones there. I would come here again, especially in the off season.

Very well maintained State Park, electric, water but no sewer hook ups. Road and pad are paved. Wide, level, and long pull throughs, big rig access is excellent. Plenty of space and privacy around the RV, a few trees but not a lot of shade. Plenty of grass, covered picnic table, and wonderful views all around. Bathrooms are old but clean. WiFi and cell are good. HEB, Wal-Mart and Lowes are about 3 miles away, as are some wonderful restaurants, and plenty of sightseeing. This park has security gates, both night and day. Sadly there is little water in the lake, but we would stay here again, its very peaceful, quiet and relaxing. We were in the Red Arroyo camping area. Rate reflects Texas Parks Pass discount.

We could not believe the state of this park. We have stayed here many times and it seems like it is just going downhill. The personnel at the office are friendly and helpful. Our site was level. The restrooms I will give a 1, they looked like they had not been cleaned in months. The ladies room was terrible; the sink had trash in it and dirt was all over the sink area. The men's room was dirty with a chicken bone on the floor that the ants had stripped long ago. It appears that there are people actually living in the park. I know an oil boom has hit the area, but one can tell by the items laying around the sites that people are using the park as a living area. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

As with most state parks, there's just water/electric hook-up. The folks that checked us in were friendly. Our site was in a nice location. It was very quiet. We will stay there again. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Truck Camper.Undo

Very nice campground with large campsites, widely spaced, easy pull through sites. The "lake" in this park was nearly dried up. The grounds were also very dry. Friendly and helpful staff. There were very few campers this time of year. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Friendly staff. Asked if we wanted to be near other campers or away which was nice. Hunting was scheduled for that weekend which did not hinder us in any way. Nice overview of the reservoir which is almost empty. The boat launches are more than a quarter mile from the edge of the water. It was still nice now, will be nicer when the dought is over and the water returns. We planned on 2 nights, then extended our stay because we enjoyed it so much here. We bought the annual Texas Parks pass for $70. Otherwise it can be as much as $7 per person, per day, plus camping fees, depending on the Texas park you are in.

We stayed here one night and enjoyed it. The sites are very spacious and the roads leading into the sites are also very spacious. There is no shade only small trees -- so you can see for miles. The lake is dried up right now but we were told this when we called for a reservation. They tell you it is $18 for the night but don't always tell you there is a $3 per person park fee too. The ranger was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Nice park. Unfortunately, the lake is no more. The drought and heat has really played havoc with the water this year but, unless you're a farmer or rancher, you don't notice it as much 'til you get to a campground where the lake has dried up. So sad. Texas charges $3 a day per person whether you're camping or not and that is reflected in the rate I posted. We had a nice long level pull-through which was easy in-easy out. Part of the Texas Longhorn herd is here and they also have a bison herd but we didn't see them. We did see some cute little ground squirrels at our site (or kitten was fascinated by them) and prairie dogs across from the cattle pasture. The park is close to town on good roads. San Angelo, the city, has a lot to offer in the line of shopping, restaurants, museums, parks, etc. but since we were there only 2 nights, didn't really get a chance to see any attractions. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others, if you don't need the lake. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
