Pretty basic

Primitive camping.. no trees or bushes for shade. No water pumps or anything. The cell coverage is ridiculous for overnight sites.. you have to camp in the back of the campground with no coverage.

Nice military park, okay location

Nice park with about 130 pull thru spots. It is very crowded however and with a location near a highway it is nothing to write home about. Small park, 3 fenced in dog areas, and a laundry facility. There is a "family community room", but that and the shower/bath house have been closed due to covid.

Army range camping

My son and I tent camped on the Ft. Bliss range’s south training zones circa 2014 at a place called Kerby Tank (see google maps) on the east edge of the range. It was a great adventure. Very empty and quiet with a great view of distant, northeast El Paso and the Franklin Mountains at sunset. It was…

Nice campsites with a great view

Got a campsite right next to the sunset trail. Was great to hike a 100 yards up a hill to a gorgeous sunset view. Campsites themselves are suuuuuper cushy. Each have a pavilion, two firepits, and a well raked tent area with room for 3 tents. Definitely would like to go back and better explore the…

Beautiful view!

Beautiful view, very quiet. Stayed at one of the drive-in sites (#44.) No cell service since the sites are tucked back in the mountains, but this added to the peace and serenity. Each site has a covered picnic table. Definitely great for a one night stay! I would love to check out their hiking…

Nice place but small spots

Stayed here one night the park is very nice. Has lots of hiking trails and scenery. The rv parking is small only has 5 sites and no amenities. Be cautious if you have a big rig the spots are not very long and are pull in pull out. We stayed in spot 5 with our 36" and it worked for the one night but…

Chihuahan desert mountains and trails

My son and I camped in the Tom Mays Unit of the Franklin Mountains State Park over Labor Day weekend 2013. We hiked up to Aztec Cave and then scrambled above it for a beautiful view of west El Paso and beyond. Lots of other trails. There were plenty of sites and I wondered why there weren’t more…

Other than the view...

Dont have high expections for this place. It was tough to camp in a tent. Staff underestimated the walk-in, which was hard - mostly because of uphill, but also because of unstable and uneven rocks. No showers, of course, because you are in desert’s territory. This place isn’t good for tent camping…

Beautiful Campground

Visited this park in both November & February multiple times. It’s a great place for primitive camping though official tent sites are available. No showers that I am aware of but vaulted toilets are located near tent pads. There are many trails to explore which extend all the way into New…

Locked in with no water.

I arrived at Franklin Mountain SP about 4:30. I was told the park was about to close. I asked if camping was available and was told, " yes but I'll be leaving soon". No mention of locking the gate or no water.

I went in and found an almost empty CG. I think there was only one tent located a…

Beautiful views and convenient to Hueco Tanks and El Paso

We stayed in a yurt. It was really cool. It was in the 40s outside and was warm inside.

You have a beautiful view of Hueco Tanks, which you could almost walk to, as well as the Franklin Mountains.

The owners of the property are very nice and accommodating. Would stay again!

We reserved our stay…

Mountain Beauty

Franklin Mountain state park is a beautiful painted scene in El Paso Tx. some of the camp sites are drive in, but most are hike in (they aren’t very far either .2-.5 mi). The summers are extremely hot. during monsoon season the trails can be sketchy with all the water running down. The spring has…

awesome

this campground was abandoned due to the fact that the road leading up to is was destroyed by the sand mining in the area. The only way to get to it now is to hike over the mountain. The views and the solitidue are worth it.

Ft. Bliss RV Park

Pretty good RV Park. All sites are paved and level. Most are pull thru as well. No internet or cable at the sites. Close to downtown El Paso.
