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.

What a great stop. We came and stayed a couple of nights in their campground.

The campground consists of a nice tenting area and RV sites. They do have electric and water but no sewer. There is also a bath/shower house. It was clean, but no hot water. The RV sites are very close together.

Went on one of their 1 1/2 -2 hour tours. The guide was excellent.

Have been to quite a few caverns, caves. This one is definitely the best we've ever been to.

Eighty percent of this cave is still alive. A huge difference! Never seen so many different kinds of formations. They keep the entrances sealed so that the fresh air does not kill the formations. There are cement paths and lighting throughout the actual tour. Ended up walking about a mile and a half.

Wear good shoes, it is slippery in some spots. Also, you do not need a coat, it is very warm. With the humidity it is about 85 degrees.

Definitely worth the stop. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are gravel, filled up quickly, No reservations taken, NO DUMP station so be clean when you arrive! Gravel sites very close to each other a few trees. Water and electric only! There is a peacock on the premises so be prepared to hear it screech. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park well off IH-10. But a good place to stop since we got off of our schedule due to a blow-out and needing to replace the shredded tire.

Sites are quite tight, a MH could not navigate into the site next ours. I didn't think I could make it either (luckily I had checked in just before him) but the next sites down the road are quite easy to get into.

I would visit again but honestly, IH-10 is such a bad highway I don't ever want to travel on this section again. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Checkin was very easy. I was the first one there. They didn't take reservations. It is a private park so there were no discounts, but the price is reasonable for an overnight stay. I checked out the bathrooms and shower for the campers, and thought they were just a bit dingy. Not a place I'd want to visit in the evening; however, the restrooms for the Caverns were well lighted and clean and even closer. It was a little tricky to park my 32' with toad, but managed to do it. I was told to check out the electric service to find one that would work. That didn't sound promising, and sure enough, the first one I picked didn't have 50 amp, but the next one did. I didn't need to level up and had a good time watching all the deer feeding in the evening and morning. It was absolutely silent at night, and fairly dark, which is great. I would come here again. It was easy to find and get to. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For $20, the 2 hour Cavern tour was a great value. It was somewhat strenuous, but worth it. A great variety of formations in this live cave. The gift shop had some food items--snacks, ice cream, and this great fudge in several varieties. And lots of fossils, rocks, and minerals for sale. The folks that were running it were very nice too.

We stayed here just to tour the caverns, which we did and thoroughly enjoyed them. The camping area is minimal at best. Just gravel and dirt. Utilities were acceptable. The store and sandwich counter is interesting. One night was plenty to see the caverns and grab dinner in the small town of Sonora. It's worth the stop off of the freeway.

Convenience to the beautiful cavern was the selling point for us. The sites were basically primitive with electric and water only. Level. If they just did a little bit of maintenance, this place would be really beautiful. Peacocks and deer running around. Not much else to do around town. There was a full-timer who took up 4 spots and had a bunch of junk strewn around the "nicest area". Wi-Fi was available, but very spotty. No phone service via AT&T.

Nice little campground, as advertised, no black water dump on-site, but also none within several miles. Caverns were well worth the stay. If you stay here check the power before you pull in. Not all posts have 50amp. That being said, it is a must see and the campground is just too convenient not to use. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Basic park with 20/30/50 amp power and water available. Pull-thru sites were on the narrow side, but plenty wide enough to extend our slides. No shade in the pull-thrus for the coach, but our spot was next to a large shade tree so were able to put our chairs under it to get out of the sun. The REAL attraction to this park though are the caverns and the quiet rural setting with peacocks and guinea hens roaming around. We arrived early enough in the day to take the 2 hour cave tour after setting up camp. Local, knowledgeable, passionate guide lead a small group of us through this very interesting cave complex. See Trip Advisor for reviews about the cave tour. We would stay here again We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very rustic property. It is Texas Hill Country. The attraction is the guided tour of the Sonora Cave which is spectacular and was well worth our overnight. Only guided tours offered and the guide was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed this cave tour. Tours are optional, but guided tours are $20 per person. Pull throughs are $20 per night. Electric box is ancient, but 50 amps worked. Pull throughs are gravel and weeds. Mosquitos at night. Turkeys, guinea hens and deer late in the afternoon. Gift shop is all modern. DelicIous home made fudge for sale. Did not go into baths or showers. Road off I-10 to cave is about 6-7 miles, but well marked with signs. There is one steep up and down hill to go over. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

This no-frills campground is acceptable for an overnight stay. The outdated restrooms were not super clean, but were acceptable, with the actual toilets being very clean. The showers need a really good cleaning. The staff was very pleasant. We did not tour the caverns. The view from the campsite was pleasant, but we were glad the place was not full as RV's are parked side-by-side. Peacocks and guinea hens run free, hawking for a handout. Lots of birds were present. We would overnight here again. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a place to stop for an overnight. I would say this is primitive camping, although water and electric are available. Camp sites are gravel and weeds, restrooms and showers were filthy. You will not find the pictures on the internet when you arrive. I don't know how old those are but definitely not those standards today. We did not go on the cavern tour, $20 a person on top of the camping fee was too much. Cavern entrance fee should be reduced for campers that are paying to stay in the park.

Quiet; excellent; great people; privately owned caverns on a working ranch. This was so peaceful. We would definitely stay again. No sewer hook-up but not a problem. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pull through site with water and electric. Decent view, close to the gift shop and tours of the caverns. Good for an overnight stay, and a chance to see the caverns. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.
