A very different kind of park! We are from out of state, have a park pass and tried to reserve a site. All places filled. We had no cell service to call and no signs telling us campground was full until we were 4 miles in towards the park! We rolled in after hours in the office 8:30-4:30. P.M.
There is a steep down hill left turn coming into the campground. There was one trailer in the campground. All sites were tent sites and were marked Reserved. We went to overflow parking and spent the night. Paid $15.00 and left the next morning. Reservation system is not clear! Composting toilets were okay. Beautiful river and canyon.

Great park love the trails. All the camp sites are next to the river. But there's thick brush between you and the river. You can't see it from your campsite. Only thing I don't like is that all the camp sites are lined up in two rows next to each other. There is some distance between sites but feels like it's a parking lot.

Primitive And Fine
Colorado Bend is a park that has improved over the last few years.
Camping is tent or RV but there are no hook ups.
Water is from a central area so take containers.
No electricity meanx no AC, in Texas is can be problematic.
Extensive cavd system to explore and a great trail system.
