Nice state park with small sand dunes to walk or slide down (they rent discs for $6). About 4 sites that can take bigger rigs. Electric and water at site (we used 50 amp). Some sites with picnic tables. All sites mostly level. Did not used park facilities. Our cost for two people one night was $23. Stayed here in a 39' 5th wheel. Would stay here again if we needed to dump and fill. Couple of TV stations and Verizon only 1 bar 4G. Thank heavens we have central vac at front door of coach to help keep sand at bay.

On our way home and needed a place to stop for the night. You can come in late if there is room. However you need to check the billboard posted at the pay station, we simply took the envelope at the self pay station. We did not read the billboard in detail because we passed the board to first see if there were open spots. We are used to “plates” at the site stating open/reserved. Since we did not see a reserved sign at the site we thought it was open. The pay station is far for the campsites and since we did not want to unhitch so we filled out our envelope and placed the money in it.
As we left we turned in the money. That when we found out we actually took someone’s spot. We felt bad. The nice lady at the front did tell us the plate signs at each camp site were ordered they just need to be installed.
Also, the billboard didn’t explain the cost well so I’m putting it here.
$15 for the site plus you pay $4 for each person. We paid $31.
We would stay here again but would respect older campsites that have postings on billboards. Sorry.
We did not use the facilities since we had our own RV. Dump station is accessible for big rigs.

Stayed there on our way to Arkansas. Ranger station was under repair, bathrooms were not clean at all and we had to use two sites for our Class A. Sand dunes are very picturesque especially in the evening light. Stayed only for one night since it was very hot.

Monahans Sandhills State Park was a park that we frequently visited as a child. The day use areas are exactly as I remember them. From the looks of the RV camp sites not much has changed since the 1970’s. I suspect that the West Texas oil boom is contributing to much of the decline. Each RV site shares a double sized ramada with their neighbor. Site 21 which we were in is backwards. Your front door and awning are opposite the ramada. The bathhouses are in shambles. The handicap stalls are permanently closed. In the men’s room, only one of the urinal’s is functional. The showers are athlete style in that they are wide open. The women’s sinks never had any soap. It is sad to see such a park in decline. However, we stayed 3 night as we were visiting my parents. Most of the visitor’s just stay the night as they pass through of what has become the Permian Basin industrial wasteland. I can only recommend a single night stay.

Water and electric next to the sand dunes - sites are on the small size but a great place for kids - cost us $23 a day to stay

Most sites are for smaller rigs though there are sites for larger rigs as well. Beautiful place to stay. Weather was up and down because it’s February/March but mostly nice. Rangers are terrific and helpful, if you need them. Bathrooms are nice. While there’s nowhere inside the shower to hang items, except over the wall, there is a bench and hooks directly outside the showers for that purpose. I enjoyed my stay immensely.

This campground is very tight. If you are looking for privacy, try to avoid campground 16-17 as the lot is tightly shared. This isn’t the parks fault but when we stayed here on December 30th we were placed to share our spot with a group of 8+ who were very un experienced campers who did not respect our rightful space. Which led us to not use it and remain in the van as we were uncomfortable being so close to a party group. When we told the park ranger in the morning, he was very understanding and reassured us that he would talk to them about their behavior. This park is beautiful and can not be compared to other sand dunes like below in the comments because like all places it is unique and has its own quirks. Bathrooms had no toilet paper and the showers do not have shelves so bring a friend to support you from the side or be prepared for your belongings to be on a sandy wet floor, however they have nice hot water.
