    Fort Bliss, Texas

    Welcome to Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic Site, a gem nestled near El Paso, TX. This place is a haven for history buffs and nature lovers alike. The park is renowned for its ancient pictographs and petroglyphs, offering a unique glimpse into the past. You’ll find the campsites tucked against the north mountain, providing a stunning backdrop for your stay.

    The campground is small and cozy, with about 20 spots, each equipped with picnic tables and electric hookups. Some sites also have water hookups. The bathrooms are clean, though a bit basic, and there are showers available. One thing to note: there's no sewer hookup, so plan accordingly.

    Visitors rave about the peaceful atmosphere and the helpfulness of the park rangers. There's a mandatory orientation video that everyone must watch, which gives you a good overview of the park's rules and history. This place is also a hotspot for climbing and bouldering, especially in the cooler months. If you're into hiking, you'll love the trails that lead to the kiva cave and other fascinating spots.

    Pets are welcome, but there are some restrictions on where they can roam. Alcohol is allowed, so feel free to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy under the stars. Just remember, no fires are allowed, so pack a camping stove if you plan to cook.

    The park is about a 15-20 minute drive from major stores and restaurants, and it's roughly two hours to Carlsbad or White Sands. Cell service can be spotty in the camp area, but it's generally good throughout the rest of the park. Whether you're here for the history, the climbing, or just to relax, Hueco Tanks offers a memorable experience.
