Pitch your tent along the Las Moras Creek under 150+ year old oak trees - exactly where the famed Black Seminole Indian Scouts lived and rode with the US Cavalry; defending settlers and travelers from Comanche along the Pecos Trail.
Explore Fort Clark - home to every historic buffalo soldier regiment in the US Army, the Black Seminole Indian Scouts; as well as almost every US cavalry regiment. After almost 100 years in service, the army post closed (1852 - 1947) and was eventually rehabilitated into a 2700 acre leisure living community, at the edge of West Texas. Historical markers dot the 21+ miles of hiking/biking trails on the Fort.
The original US Army Guardhouse is now a museum; and along with the largest privately owned historic district west of the Mississippi River, it awaits your exploration. 6 State Parks/National Recreation Areas - all within an hour drive - also await you. Visit the millions of freetail bats at Kickapoo Caverns, the wilds of the Pecos River and Seminole Canyon, tube the Frio River, bass fish at Lake Amistad, explore 21+ miles of hiking trails on the Fort, or just relax by the 3rd largest spring-fed pool in Texas. (68 degrees year round).
NOTE: Over 100 movies/TV shows/music videos have been filmed on the fort and in Kinney County including: The Alamo (John Wayne) , Arrowhead, Two Rode Together, Bandelero, The Good Old Boys and Bad Girls. Campsites are named after movies made here and in Kinney County.
Although located directly next to the RV Park, the campground is separate, with its own bathhouse and has its own vibe of quiet peacefulness. Axis and whitetail deer walk and graze through the campground year round, as well as large turkey flocks. Picnic tables, fire rings and shower rooms are also available.
Campers may fish the Las Moras Creek (catch & release) with no license needed. Tent camping here at Fort Clark is very relaxed with large unstructured campsites and a very peaceful relaxed feel to the entire campground.
