Oasis in the Desert
February 27, 2015
This park is a quiet oasis in the West Texas desert. It is easy to get in, out, and around in the park with its wide paved roads and no trees to dodge. However the lack of trees means there is no shade from the sweltering sun in the summer, other than the shade shelters over the tables. Be sure to bring sufficient food, fuel, and firewood, as none is available near the park.
In the cooler seasons, it is a great place to camp, hike, bike, and study nature. Fate Bell Shelter, in the canyon, contains some of North America's oldest Native American pictographs and is one of the oldest cave dwellings in North America. Be sure to call or check the website for dates and times of guided hikes. There is also a nice visitor’s center with nice displays, as well as an area where you can get your first view of the canyon. The Canyon Rim Trail is also a great way to see several miles of the canyon up close.
The campsites are spacious and fairly level, and range anywhere from dry camping to water and electric hookups. All have covered picnic tables and fire rings with grills. The power did go out for a couple of hours one day during our stay. There is no cell phone service, at least from Verizon, and only one over the air TV station which is in Spanish, but there is wifi in the campground, although it tends to be a slow connection. Pets are welcome anywhere in the park outside of buildings and as long as they are kept on a leash.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
