This is the best campground in the park! Beautiful views of the canyons and lots to explore right from your site. It being infamous for rattlesnakes is no joke so watch your step! We also came across lots of other wildlife in these isolated sites.

the Little Red Tent campground at Caprock Canyon State park is a tent only camping area. If you do not mind having to walk a few minutes to the restroom this is a great area. It is beautiful and every time I have stayed here, my group was the only group camping in the entire campground. The entire park is accessible 24 hours a day unlike many of the other parks that lock their gates at 10pm. I often stop here when I am running long trips to Colorado or Utah to sleep for the night, before continuing to Houston the next day.

Beautiful place to wake up and see the sites 1st thing. Each campground has a fire ring, picnic table with wind protector(?). It was a little windy, and it was chilly at night.
