The Deets

  • GPS: 31.888486 , -100.52456
  • Easy to locate: Yes. The area is easy to locate and when you get to the self pay kiosk we went to the right to the picnic primitive camp areas. There are additional primitive areas to the left and continue past the RV campground.
  • Public Land: Yes; this is a managed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife and does cost $5 / vehicle for the picnic area where we stayed overnight.
  • Amenities: There are vault toilets near the group site and each picnic area has a sheltered table and a grill. The picnic areas were well spaced so, even if they filled up during the day, it would be decent camping overnight. The sites are not level as they get closer to the water. There are a few up higher that seem more level for trailers, etc.
  • Cell: Verizon – 2 bars LTE, T-Mobile – 2 bars, Google fi – 2 bars
  • Crowded: not at all. This time of year it was completely empty in the picnic areas. The RV campground had some long term users hanging out.
  • Clean: some debris = many bud light cans along the roads
  • Would we stay here again: Yes

Although we had great sunshine for the full day we were there, the water was chilly and wind kicked up quite a bit in the afternoon and evening. It would be interesting to re-visit this during a warmer season and get the kayak out on the water.
