There are five designated campgrounds within the park: Governors Landing, Rough Canyon, San Pedro, Spur 406, and 277 North. Sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There are no reservations. Campgrounds are generally open year-round and rarely fill up, except on holiday weekends.
Campground fees range from $4 to $8 per site (50% discount with Interagency Senior Pass or Access Pass) and payable within 30 minutes of occupying a campsite. There is a self-pay fee station centrally located at each designated campground. Each site has a covered picnic table and fire grill. All campgrounds have vault toilets. Quiet hours are from 10 pm to 6 am. Check-out time is 11 am.
Though most sites will accommodate RVs, there are no hookups. An RV dump station with potable water is located along the road to the Diablo East boat ramp. Numerous RV parks in the Del Rio area offer full services. For more information, visit the Del Rio Chamber of Commerce at 1915 Veterans Blvd, call them at 830-775-3551, or visit the Chamber of Commerce website.
Site capacity is not to exceed eight persons and one recreational vehicle camping unit (three vehicles total). Vehicles must be parked in designated parking areas only and may not be driven off-road. Visitors can stay in a campground up to 14 consecutive nights, with a limit of 60 nights in the park in a calendar year.
Backcountry camping is permitted on the lake waters and shoreline, but not within a ¼ mile of a developed area. A developed area, for the purpose of backcountry camping, is defined as a designated campground, dispersed camping area, day-use picnic area, launch ramp, or public road. In addition, the entire south shoreline from Amistad Dam eastward to the US 277 bridge, with the exception of Hunt Area 5 during non-hunting season, is considered a developed area.
Park visitors are required to carry out all solid human waste and toilet paper from backcountry areas of the park with a commercially produced spill-proof and trash container safe waste bag system, or with a dump-station compatible waste system. Doing so will maintain visitor health and safety, preserve the water quality, and reduce other environmental impacts. Please help us protect your park!
