We stayed here twice going to and from Tucson. First time we didn't have a reservation and got assigned a spot in overflow. We had water and electricity, but they squeezed 4 big rigs into 3 spaces and we used a "Y" to share water. No awnings. Next time we had a reservation and had a huge site. All the the sites are large, gravel, fairly level, and terraced on the base of a mountain. The views are almost always good. Restrooms were OK, but not immaculate. Just OK. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price was great! I think all sites have a shade structure, table and fire ring but no Wi-Fi. Only 5 sites can be reserved, so get here early if you don't have a reservation. We would stay here again.
Nice level, paved sites. Great view on nearby mountains. In loop A most sites were well spaced and had a few mesquite trees around. Loop B was laid out like a commercial campground trying to maximize their real estate. Sites in loop B are close together with little privacy. Restrooms and showers were always spotless. We had reservations and arrived after hours and were advised to just go to our site and set up. Host came by the next morning with our permit. He was friendly and we never spoke to anyone from the visitor center. No Wi-Fi. We would stay here again.
This campground is located in a mesquite thicket. The mesquite trees provide a moderate degree of privacy from neighboring campers but not a lot of shade. The campsites are all back ins and paved and level. Rate shown is for a 50 amp site. 30 amp sites are only $15. This park is home to the Texas state bison herd. The canyon is beautiful and it is a short (1/2 mile) walk to get to it. It is not visible from the campground. There are a lot of trails here for hikers and bikers and horseback riders. The restrooms were clean, but the showers had some tiles missing, and it looked like they needed a makeover. The visitor center is new and has a store that sells t-shirts, hats, etc. but no camping supplies. It is only 3 miles in to Quitaqua where there is a well stocked grocery store. We would stay here again
The best thing I can say about this campground is it has electric hookups. The view of the surrounding park is great, but otherwise this is just a parking lot with hookups. Daytime temperatures were in the 100's so we wanted the electricity. We were there in the beginning of the off season, and the lot wasn't too full, but it was still a challenge to back in and get parked. I don't know how a big rig could do it in the busy time of year (winter). The NPS campground behind the store is beautiful, and we would stay there next time if possible. It was worth the trip to see Big Bend, but we would not stay here again.
We loved this park. The campground is located on a knoll and there are no tall trees, so the view is outstanding. We experienced a beautiful sunset and a magnificent nighttime thunderstorm in the same evening. Wi-Fi was available in most of the campground. There are hiking trails, Native American pictographs, and a really nice museum in the visitor center. This is desert country so be prepared for heat. All the staff was friendly and helpful and there were lots of Border Patrol officers around. This park is on the Mexican border at the west end of Lake Amistad. We would stay here again.
We came here for the rock climbing for our grandsons to enjoy. Bring your own gear and be prepared to sign a waiver. Climbing area is closed during wet weather. Live Oak campground has 50 amp hookups and lots of privacy provided by the heavy brush and trees around the campsites. Plateau campground has 30 amp hookups and less brush so the campsites are more open. If you have children you might prefer this area since you can see them if they wander off. Both areas had all campsites paved and level and some sites were waterfront. The bathrooms were OK. Not really clean, but not dirty either, just OK. Had to drive up to the office to get Wi-Fi. Office staff was friendly and helpful, but one employee in the field was unpleasant and kept telling kids to get off the rocks. Go figure. Would have rated this park a 10 if not for this guy and the so so restrooms.
