Offered near the campground.
Drop some Chisos Basin Campground knowledge on us.
Plenty of space and beautiful views from most spots. Camp hosts are always a pleasure and the Window Trailhead starts at the edge of the camp. Secluded and quiet. The drive-in an out is spectacular. It's almost impossible to have a bad time.
Incredible views of the Milky Way and the vastness of space. Stunning mountain views and close access to some of my favorite trails. Three landscapes exist at BBNP: river, mountain, desert; and they all magically intertwine. Chisos campground is very popular but spacious. Not crowded like Rio Grande Village with back-to/back sites. Chisos is a very natural campground setting. Nice and quiet. Reservable sites are cool, but so are the non-reservable ones. I ended up giving up my reserved site to a couple for a non-reserved site because it was more secluded and gave me better views. The sign read the campground was FULL but it WASN’T!!! So be sure to check in case they get too buysy and forget to change the sign! My favorite of the 3 in BBNP!
Big Bend is a special place for those of us in TX who mostly host 'hill country.' The drive down from Alpine is one of progressive excitement as the limestone canyons come into view and the vastness of the desert begins to make its impression. The park itself presents a beginner-friendly infrastructure with all the conveniences you need if you're not at the backcountry/primitive level quite yet (although those options, too, are available and highly recommended). My one comment would be to reconsider taking any pet(s) with you as both the park regulations and natural climate make it extremely difficult for you to enjoy these particular outdoors with your companion. A friend of mine brought his German Shepherd, and on quite an easy hike (Hot Springs Trail), ended up having him rescued due to overheating - kudos to Ranger Juan. Other than that, the park is beautiful, and the Window/Emory Peak trails are both gorgeous at sunrise. Enjoy!
