It’s a bit far off the i10, so if it’s dark I recommend going to the rest area or the truck stop a little farther down the interstate. This was a great spot to stop for me as I arrived an hour and a half before sunset — beautiful and a lovely crescent moon rise shortly afterward. A nice break from parking lots if you can make the most of it and arrive before dark. Eat in Fort Stockton if your heading east — or be stocked with your dinner. You won’t find anything on the way after that. 2 bars of Verizon LTE once you reach the picnic area.
