Description

Just north of the South Prong River, you’ll want to watch how far you stray from these campgrounds because you might stumble onto private property and get chased down by a group of vicious, rabid dogs! Or maybe just get a ticket. One of the two. These sites (36 - 55) have picnic tables, nearby water AND outhouses, so you won’t even have to bring your own toilet paper! Unless Continue reading...

The South Prong campground is a developed area for tent camping with bathrooms but no showers. This is a good starting point for the Upper Canyon Trail. This underrated state park is remote enough that it doesn't get that crowded. There's little to no shade, and like the rest of Texas, it gets hots. Plan accordingly and take plenty of water. The vibrant colors and lack of crowds here make it well worth the visit.

Pretty average campground, but has no water and no tent pads. Very primitive but very secluded from the other campsites.
