Description

The Roadrunner Flat Primitive Campground is about as close to sleeping in a cave as you’ll get (minus the cave part). Fifteen sites have a fire ring, picnic table and tent pad, as well as restrooms nearby (yeah, it’s actually very different from staying in a cave…) Use the modern, un-cavelike amenities as you wish when you get back from exploring miles of trail in the park. Just don’t go too far, you might end up in Mexico!

Seminole Canyon is a stunning hidden gem. During the day, take a hike on the beautiful rim trail and enjoy scenic views of the landscape, and at night look at some of the brightest stars you have ever seen, with an unobstructed view of the sky. The park itself does not get much traffic, so you may have the entire campground and most of the park to yourself like our group did. The canyon itself is beautiful, and makes you feel like you are standing at the top of the vast Texas plains. If you take the tour into the canyon, you can see some of the best representations of historic cave paintings. This park is absolutely worth checking out!

Roadrunners. Stars. One other person in the entire park. Pitch your tent here at night, and hike the Rim Trail/Rio Grande Trail early and go peer into Mexico, because once the cloud cover burns off, the sun is relentless. At night javelinas can be heard in the canyon, in which hiking is allowed with a guide only down to the pictograph site. Seminole Canyon was a wonderful discovery, and feels truly remote.
