Latest Check-Ins

Nice parking area for just an overnight stopover. Noise level high due to ruck traffic coming in to park and the train. Bathroom were clean. The visitor’s center lobby is closed temporarily due to COVID. After the border crossing, it worked out good for one night. Cell coverage for AT&T was strong.

An ok place for the night, but, just like any rest stop, extremely loud all throughout the night...

Good place to stay after crossing the border. Water is not available to fill up the RV, only a small "water fill station" to drink there or fill up a small bottle.

Stayed here last night, but loud with the trucks but nice bathrooms and water available. Stayed at night so the info center was manned. Some parking locations are fairly dark. Saw border patrol taking dogs to sniff around the edges

Great place to sleep for the night, nice tables with shade and 24HR bathrooms. A little oasis in the middle of no where before or after border crossing.

Ótimo lugar para parar e dormir depois da fronteira, são 30km. Banheiros limpos, tranquilo, seguro. Dormem vários caminhões aqui a noite. A Internet é meio lenta.


Awesome spot to crash for the night with 24 HR bathrooms. We felt very safe and comfortable. Watch out for biting beetles! Would 100% recommend.

Fantastic free spot to spend the night. 24-hr Washrooms, water and an oasis picnic area. You are wedged between a hi-way and an active train line and truckers also pull in to overnight... but if you pick your spot well and wear plugs it’s great. The info center closes at 5pm. In the morning we received a warm welcome and a lot of great info on Texas from the tourism office staff. This was a great stop after crossing over from Mexico.

Very convenient and nice rest area. Wifi 24/24 at the entrance door. Restroom and water fountain 24/24 too. The little parking on the east side is less noisy (but closer to train track...)

Definitely a safer option than staying in Laredo itself, it wasn't very quiet with trains and trucks going past but it was safe, had clean bathrooms and water, and wifi. :)

Nice to spend the nigth after/before cross the border. A lot of maps and information of Texas State. Really useful.

Nice stop. Little noisy because of the trucks parked for the night
