We stayed here only as an overnight traveling from Arizona to Houston on I-10. That is a very long, sparsely populated stretch of road, and we try to keep our miles under 300 per day in the heat of summer. Sonora was our stop from Van Horn, Tx. This park is off the beaten path. It is about 8 miles off of I-10, in the middle of nowhere. The town of Sonora is 15 miles east of the park. The RV park is in the Caverns of Sonara attraction. The store is big, and stocked with nice gifts, as well as homemade fudge, but no camping staples. The staff was friendly. You can take guided tours through the caverns. (We did not.) The park itself was empty, they have several pull throughs and some back ins. We did not need reservations due to the time of year. We were the only campers with the exception of someone we think worked here. Lots of deer on the premises. They have water and electric, but no sewer. All in all, a nice park. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

We visited here to tour the caverns but then found that the distance was too far (1.5 to 2 miles underground) for my disabled back to try. We were the only ones on the CG the first night. That made the tight geometry easier to work out. The utility peds (there is no sewer to avoid possible contamination of the caverns) are very close to a fence line. I could not pull in the way the staff advised. I went around and pulled in backwards, getting the benefit of some shade. Since there was only W&E, I ran the lines under the trailer and hooked from the "wrong" side. This place provided a great place to relax for a couple of days after five weeks on the road. No TV. No Wi-Fi. Almost no AT&T (go up to the office) phone. We will stay here again when the weather is cooler. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you want to see the Caverns this is a great place to stay. There were about ten pull-through spaces, plus several other sites. The sites were spacious enough you didn't feel you were in your neighbor's unit. Parking was on gravel and fairly level. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. A treed area close-by had a picnic tables, and there were also tables in the area reserved for tent camping. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A gift store/office will get you some snacks, etc., but if you wanted a meal fixed by someone else, you would have to drive to Sonora, approximately 20 miles away. For the birder, there must have been at least a dozen species to see, including a beautiful peacock in the residential area. The tour of the Caverns is a must-see.

The main reason to stay here is to take the tour through the very spectacular caverns. The staff is very friendly. The pull through sites are a little tight, especially for longer trailers due to the limited access drive by the fence line. Motor homes will have an easier time. It was made a little easier for us by arriving early in the afternoon. The RV sites were pretty well filled by the end of the day. Note that the restrooms up by the store & visitor center are nice, but the ones by the RV sites are a little older and not quite as spiffy, though clean. I recommend this park, not as a destination in and of itself, but for the caverns. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Interesting little out of the way campground. Main feature is the cave trip. We stayed here twice, first in January then April of 2016. Very quiet, deer in campground. No dump site, however. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a cute quiet campground. It is small older and not fancy but very pleasant. There were deer by a feeder on a regular basis 30' from my trailer. I was met on the steps by a unconcerned peacock. The drawback to this park is the parking spots are a little tight to maneuver if you've a long rig; though rv'ers are a helpful group and its very doable. I've a 32' trailer I pull so I'm quite long. The park appears to be upgrading and with the available space I saw it's likely the back-ins will be much easier soon. The personnel were very helpful.
I stopped during off season and it was very easy to maneuver since only 6 other trailers were there. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very level [we didn't have to unhitch], very tight spaces, no sewer, no WiFi, detached employees--a resort place. Good for an overnight. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet, good 30 amp, good water. Pull thrus. Some big rigs here. Gravel lot. Not much more than a quiet parking lot. A visit to guided cave tour is spectacular. Makes for a good day and quiet night about 8 miles from I-10. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

We parked in a pull-through space. Very tight spaces but a very quiet park. The deer and peacocks wandering around were an added bonus. This prk is 6-7 miles off of I10. I would call before traveling to the park to make sure they have space. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Caverns of Sonora campground in Sonora, Texas is a very rustic, small campground where you can visit the Caverns of Sonora. We camped there in an our 34th fifth wheel and had a gravel, pull through site, which was very spacious. There were 48 sites with only water and electricity, a few of which were pull-thrus. There is no dump station The staff were very knowledgeable and accommodating. The campground gift shop was beautiful and had many unique items for sale. By being there after Christmas, everything in the store was half-price, except for food, drinks and their famous fudge! We were able to buy some Palestine onyx and also a salt rock lamp. These items were from Tucson, many of which are available at the Tucson Rock and Gem show which is held in February. We went ahead and bought the items at the gift shop because they were 50% off. We saw many deer who were very easy to photograph and also peacocks. This is the only campground in Sonora Texas, but it is well worth the stop. We did not visit the Caverns, because we had been driving all day and were told that there were 360 steps down into the 155 foot deep Caverns and also that the heat and humidity in the Caverns was quite high. , We were told that people had been in caverns all over the world and said that these Caverns were the best. The ticket price for adults for the Caverns is $20 per person. We would definitely camp here again. Pets are welcome. The Campground is located about 8 miles from I-10 . Several of the campsites had just received new electrical hook ups. We had a wonderful time!! We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campsie zip off of i-10 about 8 miles. Approximately 1 miles was on APAC on a packed gravel road. As mentioned in other reviews entrance into the few pull through RV sites is tight. All of the RV sites are on a packed gravel base. There was no cable and Verizon service was minimal. Surrounding the RV ares are well kept grounds and tent areas. We saw abundant wildlife. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great stop along this stretch of I10. A few miles off of road - quiet and dark. The caverns were as good as Carlsbad - smaller, more intimate but just as enjoyable. As other reviews noted, the spaces were tight, no wifi or dump but the electricity was fine at our site, although nearby sites were not working. You don't go there for a great RV park but for the great caverns. Nice staff. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Caverns are by tour only. Book your cavern tour reservation when you arrive for the next morning. We missed a tour and had to wait over an hour for the next tour as they were a little short handed.

Nothing very close so stop for supplies prior to leaving I-10

Not many options on this stretch of I-10 and great for seeing the Caverns (which you should do as long as you've made the trip from the Interstate). Nice, quiet country setting. Electric boxes look pretty sad but tested and worked ok. Marginal Verizon data signal, ok voice service. Obviously developed before todays big rigs became commonplace with very close site spacing but parking is doable - even though every single post protecting the utility hookups from too tight a right turn was displaced/gouged. The level of difficulty experienced will likely depend on how many, how long and how considerate others are. Me - I'd shoot for being there as early as I could to have as much manuever room as possible. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were traveling across I-10 from El Paso to San Antonio and needed a place to stay for the nite and came across this campground. No reservations taken, small little campground with pull-throughs and tent sites and it was a great stop for one nite. The big benefit here is that you were camping next to some of the nicest "show caves" we've seen in our travels. It's good for a one nite stay, don't need to unhook, enjoy the caverns and be on your way the next day. No reception of any kind for us, phone, internet, TV. No dump. Beautiful scenery surrounding the place. Would definitely stay again. Had some issues with electric. Check your pedestal before hooking up. You might have to move. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
