Seminole Canyon State Park: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/state-parks/seminole-canyon

Overview: Wonderful gem of a state park in the Lower Pecos area of Texas.  About 3 hour drive east of Big Bend National Park on Hwy 90.  If you are coming from east Texas to Big Bend stop here!   We loved our weeklong stay here. Seminole Canyon is beautiful and walking the canyon rim trail all the way to the Rio Grande is awesome (6 mile round trip).  The campsites have amazing views and you feel like you are in the middle of nature (because you are!).  The night sky is very clear for stargazing.  Great Texas State Park!  Only downside (or maybe it is an upside) is it is 45-60 minute drive to Del Rio, which is the closest town with grocery stores, gas, restaurants, etc.  So stock up your supplies and head to Seminole Canyon State Park.

Campsites:  Paved, fairly level sites with 30 Amp electric and water.  Back in or pull through sites available.  Beautiful views!  Good amount of space for each campsite.  There is minimal shade cover with only some shrubs and trees at each site.  Shade shelter, picnic table, level tent site, and fire-pit/grill at each site.

Amenities:  Clean bathhouse with hot showers.  Hiking trails with wonderful canyon and Rio Grande views!  Daily guided tour to pre-historic caves with pictographs ($5 per person).  Dump station.  Visitor center.

Pet friendly:  Yes

Internet:  Wi-Fi throughout the park.  Reliable, but somewhat slow.  AT&T  (and T-Mobile as it was using the AT&T network) is the only phone network that has a signal (no Verizon, Sprint).

Price:  $20/night

Rating:  4.5/5
