    Welcome to Seminole Canyon State Park Campground, nestled near Comstock, Texas. This spot is a gem for those who appreciate the rugged beauty of the high desert. The campground offers stunning views, with Mexico to the right and the U.S. to the left, making it a unique place to set up camp.

    The campground is open year-round and caters to both tent and RV campers. You'll find essential amenities like drinking water, electric hookups, showers, and toilets. Pets are welcome, and there are picnic tables at each site. The restrooms are kept impeccably clean, which is always a plus.

    Visitors rave about the quiet, secluded sites and the breathtaking views. The hiking trails are a highlight, offering vistas over the Rio Grande River and the chance to explore ancient pictographs on guided tours. The dark skies here are perfect for stargazing, making it a haven for astronomy buffs.

    The park's visitor center features a well-done museum, and the rangers offer informative tours of the petroglyphs, some of the oldest in North America. If you're into mountain biking, the trails here won't disappoint.

    While the sites are spacious, they can be a bit exposed, so be prepared for the desert environment. There's no cell service, but you might catch some spotty Wi-Fi near the restrooms. For those looking for a bit more adventure, a short drive west will take you to the Pecos High Bridge, offering more spectacular views.

    In short, Seminole Canyon State Park Campground is a fantastic spot for those looking to immerse themselves in the beauty and history of the Texas desert. Whether you're here for the hiking, the history, or just the peace and quiet, you're in for a treat.
