There is no T Mobile service down in the park, but a couple of bars up at the sign. You can also watch the sunset up there..which is what we are doing right now. It is super windy here today. I am adding photos of the current campsite pay information since there wasn't any already. The visitor center had a blue algea warning, so be aware and do not get in (or let your pets get in) the water if you see it.

Beautiful campground. Good nights rest. Had ATT coverage. Showers.

As described.

I’m visiting all the most recommended dinosaur track sites so headed here. I was wondering if some services aren’t available during the off season…the shower was still open with warm water (up next to the ranger station). I spoke to someone with an RV who said electrical boxes were locked up, but I didn’t look around if that was for all spots. It’s a pretty big campground

Beautiful views of the lake. Sites are pretty spread out so lots of privacy. Each with its own fire pit and sheltered bench and table. Lots of bugs still even though the lows are in the 30’s. I think they’re just gnats and not mosquitoes but I used my window mesh screens

Once you dip down towards the ranger station you will lose T-Mobile

This campground is a little slice of heaven in the middle of almost nowhere. We arrived late at night and pulled over at the first sight we saw. $10 for an established campground (picnic table, no hookups). At the top, we got full signal with all the cell carriers. in the morning, we moved close to the water to fish and lost reception with everything except At&t. The showers were clean and warm. Not many people staying when we arrived (week day, off season). Great place to rest your head or spend a few days relaxing. The dinosaur tracks trail was interesting!

As described, very nice campground. Only the pit toilets were open this time of year but they were clean and had TP. A little out of the way but worth it for the peace. We were the only ones here last night.

Clean campsites. spaced apart. when we were there it was not too busy. nice showers and pit toilets.

a man-made lake with bass fishing. Trolling speed only for boats. Limited number of sites with electric and water but no waste dump. Plenty of pit toilets. plenty of interesting camping spots scattered around the lake. no verizon cell reception except for a glimmer at the dinosaur tracks interpretive shelter.

Hidden gem along the route from Denver to Austin. Cheap, spread out, not too far off the route...better than "picnic areas" the rest of this route is known for.

Very nice hidden gem in NE New Mexico. Highly recommend. Peaceful! Good ATT signal here, reservations online easy and affordable.

Was closed to all out of state people and was only a day use area. I’m sure it’s covid related. Looked beautiful from atop by the entrance. Could hear geese in the lake and saw deer, cows and horses all around on the drive up. Would definitely come back when things are back to normal.

Beautiful park, lots of campsites spread out around the lake. Plenty of wildlife to see. I'm the only one here today, so it is very peaceful.

A jewel with nice camping, from remote tent to RV hookups. I found a tent site overlooking the lake but away from the crowds. Looking forward to staying there again this June.
