Camping at Seminole Canyon State Park

Camping at Seminole Canyon State Park is a great way to spend a week or a weekend! We have been enjoying the park for about 8 years and each time we come we do more and see more wonderful things. The Rock Art of the Lower Pecos is always a draw, and there is also boating, visiting close by Langtry (where Judge Roy Bean was “the law west of the Pecos” for many years in the late 1800’s). There are many animals to see, bird watching during some of the seasons, walking around some pretty spectacular canyons or just relaxing!

The scenery as you drive toward the park.

The Pecos River

The scenery is magical! Especially before a rain storm.

Find your perfect camping spot. They are all good, with views that are perfect too.

Take the Park sponsored Fate Bell and Fate Bell Annex tour. The Park sponsors tours of Presa Canyon , the Upper Canyon, and soon the Panther Canyon tour. Tickets available online or at the park office .

There are miles of trails that one can enjoy on ones own. One of my favorites is the Rim trail, but the Rio Grande trail is a favorite too. And, the Windmill Tour is also a favorite. I guess I like them all.

And….the views!

Take a canoe/kayak ride on the Pecos River, or Lake Amistad.

Visit neighboring Rock Art sites sponsored by the Witte Museum

We’ve seen skunks, deer, grey fox, javelina, raccoons, bob cats, hawks, canyon wrens, buzzards, ravens, indigo snakes, rattle snakes and coachwhip snakes, jack rabbits, lizards including the Texas horn toad lizard and porcupines roam the park. There has been a Mexican Black Bear siting in a nearby canyon. Here is a picture of a porcupine that visited us one morning.

And, at the end of the day enjoy your camp site at Seminole Canyon State Park
