One of my favorite TX state parks! We camped down by the river, and the sites are roomy. There is a picnic table by each site so you don’t have to carry your camping tables down to the walk-in sites. You park up top by the toilets and walk down to the river sites. There are other walk-in sites that require more of a trek as well as regular campsites. Always full when we visit regardless the season. Fun drive into the park, too! If you have to arrive after 10pm, just call and get the gate code.
Love, love, love this area any season! The campground had been closed due to bad weather but was briefly reopened for us brave few still seeking refuge amidst the beauty of a a National Forest. I come here a lot, and each time I find something new to inspire me. Usually just stay in the free areas, but this once stayed in the campground which would have been lovely had it been more in-season.
This place was full the first few times I tried to visit. Popular place and for a good reason. Follow your bear safety protocol folks! We saw lots of bears in the area. Love the drive to the campground. Be sure to spend some time in Ouray while you’re here!
