Not knowing there were 2 entrances and being unable to get anyone to answer the phone at the park, we relied on our GPS and actually ended up at the Las Tusas Rec area rather than the main park and campground. This is On the...More

Seven mile road in from I40 is steep & windy for bigger rigs but take your time ... very doable. We did not re-hitch the dinghy coming out however, until we reached the top near I40. The dry loop sites, when open, are more picturesque....More

Met my brother here for my first time. He is spending a week here camping and fishing. I'm not a camping guy, but this is a good place to spend time with friends fishing.

Unfortunately, the campsite was dirty...littered with previous campers' refuse, such as water bottles, soft drink cans, discarded bandages, and more. No ranger on site and the showers have been removed from the facility. We joked that before was arrived, we wondered whether the park was...More
