Tent camping at its best

Stopped and looked but didn’t camp. If you can snag a spot.. look out, fantastic most scenic camp ever!

Good BLM

Plenty of camping on BLM land. Be advised, signage recommends high clearance vehicles.

Large campsites right near the Utah border

Roads are pretty typical of public lands.. go slow, but we got a space with a private campsite and fire ring with a killer view. And… it’s free so.. doesn’t get much better than that haha.

Must stop kinda place

One of the top 2 prettiest sites I’ve ever camped in hands down. Roads are garbage in some spots, typical, but boy are the views worth it. Plus.. it’s free! Screw that KOA and come here.

Excellent BLM

Little bumpy coming in and went slow on class C with LCI jacks that hang low. The views are magnificent. No camping signs before the camping areas but many camp there anyway as well. Awesome stuff to climb here. ATV here.

Great views avoid mud season

The Mountain View’s can’t be beat. Nice staff and quiet and peaceful. Mud season you will get it all over you and your animals tho. Even at the site. Thick sticky mud so be prepared lol.

Worth a visit but...

I’ll give this place a 5 for scenery and beauty/nature and a 2 for lake access for waterfront sites. From Rosa Loop (the full hookup loop) it’s about 2 miles to the beach each way even though it’s literally the ugh below you. There is a steep Rocky and sticker burr infested slope. Very steep. Be prepared to climb down and up with your kids or animals or drive walk instead. Beach is kinda meh but my dogs enjoyed it. All required baths from the mud afterwards tho lol. Peaceful place. Out of the way from interstates so probably a lesser visited park. Still.. at close to $500 spent (after day fees not included in the online reservation $9/day or pay $80 for annual pass), I’d prefer easier access to the main attraction.. the water. So.. I’d come back. Maybe. But it’s a hard 3 for me.

A must see

Unfortunately contracting/spreading covid is more likely when you camp alone, so that’s off limits for now, but you can day use the park, and mingle with all the other day users.. much safer 😂 Anyway, it’s a gorgeous place with the highest concentration of petrified wood known to man.

Beautiful park, however...

Great scenery here, and luckily New Mexico now allows camping again at its state parks, but… there are about a trillion sandburs on the grass here. We have 4 dogs and have spent an inordinate amount of time saving their paws from the burs. Love the looks, wouldn’t bring pets.

First to Review
Free hookups!

I give this a 4 because it’s free lol. The city was nice enough to provide around 10 or so (we were the only campers for 2 nights) free sites with power (20/30/50) and water. There is also a dump site on property. All free! Duck pond and golf course also. The town is nothing but oil pumpers everywhere and it smells of oil in the air, but if you’ve been driving awhile it’s a welcome stop. And… free! ;)

A fantastic COE find!

In the middle of nowhere but so awesome to stop at on a long trip. Beautiful lake with a beach. Lovely trees everywhere around your sites. Gravel but mostly level.

Holy cow kinda park

One of the prettiest places I’ve ever been. Waterfalls abound, and the blue water Lee Creek is to die for. AT&T non existent.

Decent Park but Lathrop to the south is better

Park on a man made reservoir. Not bad, and better than an rv park, but I likely wouldn’t come again

Another great Texas state park

Gorgeous waterfront sites with excellent fishing. Fun trails! Highly recommended

Only natural lake in Texas!

Beautifully creepy with its Spanish moss covered trees all through the lake. Quiet and great trails for you and the doggies!

Excellent state park

Huge site! Water frontage to die for. Be warned tho.. no At&T. Dead zone, so plan ahead. Other carriers unknown

Nice Park off of I-10

Private stocked lake. Very nice and attentive staff and park is clean and well maintained. Pull through sites close together as typical of rv parks.

Colorado’s first designated state park!

Fantastic park. One of our absolute favorites. Excellent trails and a ridge to climb, as well as stellar views of the Spanish peaks. Excellent scenic drives are not far away.

Excellent and inexpensive

Great COE park. Spacious sites and great lake access. Can't beat the price compared to the State Park that's the next door neighbor to this park.

Great spot close to town

They do stuff for kids fairly often. Clean bath house and nice lounges and pool. Great staff.
