All the roads in are paved, as are all the site. Each site is electric and water hook up with a covered picnic table. Sites are very well spaced. Restrooms were very clean. We had plenty of ATT service. Staff was very helpful. I was unable to make a same day reservation and I called the staff and they did it for me over the phone. There was some road noise from Hwy 90. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campgrounds are a mix of dry camping and W&E sites. Views are excellent on many sites, and private at others amid desert scrub, including many cacti and thorny acacias. W&E hookups worked fine. Sites varied from level to somewhat sloped. Picnic tables were covered with a metal roof design (no trees). Dump station has cleanup hose separate from dump area, odd design. WiFi was only at the museum/entrance station and bathhouse, some network news sites blocked by the state. Shame on Texas. Guided tour to see the pictograph and rock overhangs in the canyon worth the $8. Trails to the canyons and to the Rio Grande/Amistad reservoir worth the time. Was completely quiet and free of humming and internal combustion noise near the Rio Grande. Birdlife was solid for winter. Pyrrholuxias, Cactus Wren, Phainopeplas common. Roadrunners not so common. Star gazing outrageously good. Windy. Nearest supplies are in Del Rio, come prepared. No Verizon service until Del Rio. We would camp here again in a heartbeat.

First thing to know is, approaching from the north, the park is very poorly signed. The entrance is a couple of miles past the Pecos river bridge, but the sign is not the usual large state park format, and by the time you see it, at 60+ MPH in a big rig, you are not going to make the entrance. We waited for the unhelpful park employee to eventually shuffle out of her office hideaway to check us in. Later, visiting the excellent museum/interpretive center, we noted other visitors having the same experience. One was peering around the counter, asking if anyone was there. The park itself is lovely, though a bit buggy. Showers were modern, but cobwebs looked like they had been there forever. We would probably not stay here again. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Date of stay: Nov. 11-17, 2018 We stayed in the Desert Vista CG, and we were fortunate that no one was placed in the site in front of us because we had a lovely view out the windshield. The CG road and sites were tight, but they had good space in between them with nice vegetation all around. This pretty park is on the smaller side as Texas State Parks go, but it has a bit of everything to keep you occupied. There is a nice nature trail with a bird blind, although we didn't spot any birds this trip. The VC looks small when you first step in, but actually has a large, winding exhibit space that is very nicely done. The staff and camp hosts were all helpful and friendly. There are several trails of varying length within the park, all easily accessed from the campgrounds or VC. While phone signal from your campsite will probably not happen for you, out on the trails, you will get good signal from Mexico (be sure your plan includes international roaming or keep your phones turned off!) There are ramadas, benches, and trash cans every mile along the trails. The pictograph boat tour was not available while we were there due to low water levels in the river. We signed up for and thoroughly enjoyed the pictograph cave tour, which is the only way visitors are able to access the canyon floor. The ranger who led the tour was very knowledgeable and interesting. Even if tours aren't normally your thing, we strongly recommend this one. The closest town Comstock is about a 10-15 minute drive away, and has only limited services. There is a P.O., small gas station and convenience store, and a diner or two. The night skies are amazing here. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park with a bit of hiking and biking available. It is far from any resources; so make sure you have everything before you get here. Each morning we saw a few deer while walking. Everything was great about the campground except the fact that they don't have Verizon service and the available WiFi was extremely poor for our use.

Not the most level of sites, but clean. Staff here was wonderful and very accommodating to our arriving early. Great hiking opportunities around. Showers looked like a cross between a prison shower and a high school shower, but literally had the best water pressure and temp control I have seen in a while. Park is literally 40+ miles to the nearest grocery store/gas station, so be prepared. But be awed by the sunsets, sunrises and outdoor experience. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

No grocery stores or gas within 30 miles. Go walk the Canyon Rim trail. It is rated "Challenging", but that is just because of the length and loose rocks. Little elevation gain here.

Starkly beautiful state park on the edge of nowhere. We used this as an overnight stop on our way into West Texas toward the Davis Mountains, but would have liked to have stayed longer.

Sites were graveled, level, and a combination off pull-up or back-in sites. All sites were well spaced and had a picnic table under a small shelter. There is no shade at all, and you are situated on the crest of a small hill, so there was a constant warm breeze and unobstructed views. Utilities worked well and shower house was modern and clean.

I had reserved the site online, but there was no information when we arrived as to which site we were to be in. The campground was nearly empty so we took the one that suited us the best and checked in at the park office in the morning. Note that the camping fee does not include the additional $3.00 per adult daily park admission, and that is not collected until you arrive at the park. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is in a stunning setting, with spacious sites. We camped in a pull through E19, with 30-amp and water, no sewer, but there is a dump station. E 20 was originally assigned, but it was difficult to back in with a 40-footer, so the neighbor in a Class B changed with us for his pull through. The host was fine with that: no hassles. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First time experience in a state park, and it was great! Spaces far apart with some plant/tree separation. Picnic tables are covered. Fire pits provided. Bathrooms and showers (2) were very clean. There are hiking and biking trailers. Guided tour of pictographs was very good. Visitor Center's small interpretive center was great! Staff even let us move our travel trailer close to Visitor Center due to attending another guided program that ended after checkout time. Area patrolled often by State park official and even state park police. Site was a little tight for our travel trailer but due to space between sites it was not a problem. Will definitely return if in the area! We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed one night in site #E16 (back-in, with electric and water), which was disappointing because it was so cramped. The site was barely long enough for the trailer; I had to park the truck right beside the trailer which cramped us even more. Since we were only staying one night, it wasn't worth the hassle to move. Next time, I'd ask to stay in the upper end of Desert Vista Loop in #18-31. Be careful, some of the turns into the camping loop are tight. The guided tour to see the pictographs is worth it. The park had decent wi-fi which worked even at our campsite. We had full LTE cell service (AT&T) and the satellite worked fine too. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park all the way on the Texas/Mexico Border. Our site had good satellite service and good AT&T cell service. Great hiking trails that you can also navigate with bikes. Also recommend taking the guided tour down the the Petroglyphs. It was a $5 per person fee, but very informative. You cannot visit the site without being on the tour. They are also in process of building a bird blind. Most of the shade trees are pretty short - I would think it would be pretty toasty in the summer - but great in the Late Fall/Winter/Early Spring.

Rate reflects $20 first night, $10 second night with TX SP annual pass. There's a $3 per person charge for park entry unless you have the pass, in addition to the campsite fee. Sites aren't assigned in advance at TX state parks, so when we arrived we were assigned a back-in. We drove around the loop to check it out first, and on our second trip around our neighbor jumped up on the truck and asked if we wanted to trade. He had a pull-through but the tent pad was too small for them. Win-win, we really lucked out. There's a dry-camping loop with sites that have plenty of room, but it was hot and we wanted the AC without bothering everyone else with the generator. Lots of trails for such a small park, and if you can take the ranger walk into the canyon you should do it. The displays in the office/museum building are really neat, and the video was excellent. We rode our bikes down a rocky road/path (not for motorized vehicles) and were able to see the drawings in Panther Cave across the water by walking out as far as we could safely. Really neat place, quiet at night, gorgeous sunsets. Picnic shelter with table on concrete, fire ring nearby. While the pull-through would have been long enough for our truck and trailer, the level part and the hookups required us to pull forward pretty far and unhook and park the truck behind. Our front door faced the road side instead of the picnic side, but that was ok. We sat outside both nights and watched the sunset. Site #29 was at the top of a hill, so the views were great. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed in a water/electric site in the upper area near the restrooms. There are no trees anywhere, but lots of cactus and scrub brush between campsites. Each campsite has a covered patio with a picnic table and fire ring. Wi-fi was barely adequate to take care of e-mail and do a little web browsing. There was no Verizon cell service. The closest city is Del Rio, 40 miles away, so be sure you're well stocked when you get there. Nights are very dark, with some of the best stars I've seen in a long time. Don't miss the rock art tours! We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is lots of fantastic hiking, and the trailhead is right at the campground. The loop trail to the Rio Grande river along the canyon rim is very scenic, if a little long (7 miles). Other, shorter, hikes are very nice as well. Don't miss the ranger-led Fate Belle rock art tour, every day at 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Also, the Witte Museum runs a tour to the White Shaman rock art site every Saturday at 12:30 PM. This site isn't in the park, but it's only a mile down the road and very worthwhile.

Ranger assigned the electric/water site the first night, it was okay but no view. Moved for the 2nd night to the primitive area, much nicer. Many of the sites with power were small, I did see a few 40'ers pull in so there are some big enough. Roads are okay for all size. Plenty of space between sites. Very quiet and dark area.
