Nice spot for the night one other person on a Tuesday night. I had good cell service with Verizon and a cell booster.

Report Check-In

Nice secluded area but almost no Verizon reception so we had to move on.

Area as described by others. Gov site says it's a picnic area. Posted as 14 day stay on on site info board. Good for overnight. Clean. Quiet. Our only issue were the flies. They were bad. Don't know if it's a seasonal thing?

Report Check-In

Clean, quiet and safe. We spent one night, only one other car. Pit toilets, pit grills, picnic tables. Only sounds were cattle and birds. It was fairly windy. Great sunrise. Sign says you can stay up to 14 days. Free.

Very clean, calm, and safe looking place. Restrooms were super close by, beautiful sky and very peaceful.

Pit toilets with toilet paper, picnic benches, fire pits, very quiet. I pulled in at night and it was easy to find and only one other van here. Another car pulled in the middle of the night and everyone left early.

Great for stargazing at night but daytime there’s a lot of flies that’ll bite. Nice peaceful location overall!

One tiny bar of service for T-Mobile.

Very clean picnic area. A little out of the way but easy to get to. The road coming in is super narrow but paved so be careful and watch your mirrors when meeting someone.

Great place. Quiet. Convenient on the way across. Saw many birds including an owl.

Decent little place— clean bathrooms & tables. Perfect for a stopover. Pretty quiet except for some teenager with too much testosterone who came at around 11 to terrorize everyone parked there.

Report Check-In

Nice enough, nothing fancy, but it was well kept. We shared the place with somebody who spent 95% of the time we were there in his car. It was nice and quiet, though. Virtually no vehicle traffic all night and morning. Good for a simple stopover.

Report Check-In

Great spot to overnight. Bathrooms are currently closed.

Report Check-In

When we arrived there were already 3 other vehicles there. We had to listen to the guy from Oregon with the silver Ford Escape talk on his cell phone for 3 hours. It's not a very big area. We already had our rooftop tent deployed or we would have gone to a nearby field instead.

Dirt lot with pit toilets, plenty of space. Picnic tables and fire pits with grill grates. Could hear cows throughout the night.

Report Check-In

Great little over night spot just across the TX border. At first we were a little skeptical since you have to drive 15 mins down farm roads but we felt very safe. There ended up being an alternate route so we didn’t have to drive back down the dirt roads to get out. Has about 6 little campsites or so with grills and tables. Pit toilets and trash bins. There were a few people camping and a few in vans, very quite all night.

Report Check-In

Clean pit toilets and not many people, even on a Saturday night. Pretty remote, but a nice stop over.

Great place!! Clean and as everyone has said quiet.

Nice place as described above. Stayed for a night last April, too.

Cute level gravel lot, super quiet, no lights. A few trees and a bunch of picnic tables.

Report Check-In

Very, very quiet spot for the night. It's really out in the middle of nowhere. There is one house nearby but that's it! The park is lovely and very well maintened. A lovely break from the parking lots we usually stop at for the night.

Très calme ! Quelques arbres pour avoir de l'ombre, des tables de pique-nique, des barbecues et du bois mort disponible sur place !!!
