If you want to leave telephones, tv and the Internet behind and enjoy open skies, hiking trails, nature and history, this is the place. We camped here for two nights and left the new Millenium behind. Nice sites, great views, bird life and hieroglyphs. A...More

Tent camping really requires that you open up the tent to take advantage of the stiff breeze. There are a lot of hiking trails and the ranger tour of the pictographs is a must. Biking on the trails can be difficult. There is loose gravel...More

The only way to see the pictographs is with a Texas State Park guide and it was totally worth the price of the tour to be able to walk down into the canyon. The scenery is just gorgeous and it's very quiet and peaceful. There...More

We were there on a Monday so we didn't get to see the pictographs (no tour offered). They did have a nice little museum and overlook at the visitor center. The campground is nice and quiet and a good stopover.

Classic Texas scenery. If you are wanting to see a bit of "movie style" Texas scenery, go here. You can see most everything in a day. Beautiful canyons, and walks to suit your ability and stamina. Plenty of places to stop for a picnic with...More
