  • This place seems to be a campsite gas and have a store and laundry. The village itself is a campsite. There is a nature trail at campsite 18. Besides that there isn't much to do.  more »

  • Very clean! Bathrooms were spic and span. There are some nice campsites that are private and clean. No fires allowed so bring charcoal or your campsite stove. It kept it clean but made for some very cold nights while we were there. The only place in the park with showers besides the cabins. $2 for 5 minutes so bring your quarters. The hot water started right away so at least you didn't have to wait for that. The camp store here is stocked with plenty of goods. Even chicken breast and some frozen veggies if you wanted to keep it healthy! Make your reservations 2 months in advance as it fills up quickly.
  • Beautiful campsites. We used the no hook-up sites, seemed much nicer. Facilities we're adequate. Small store nearby for groceries and such with decent WiFi. No cell reception. Great trails nearby as well.
  • They have showers and a washing machine at this camp ground. It is more family friendly. It stays about 15 degrees warmer than Chisos Basin Camp ground.
  • Very strict on the bear boxes. Had a cooler out for an hour and got a warning. We had a nice big site that could have used some maintenance. Very busy camp ground.
  • Clean camp grounds. Lots of room between sites. Bathroom clean. Utility area to wash dishes. Each spot comes with a table and food storage.
