Big Bend Ranch isn’t the most friendly place for anyone with a trailer, or anyone not in a Jeep Wrangler 4x4, really. The terrain is often brutal and the roads reflect this. So a site like Vista de Bofecillos is a welcome retreat for many since it is one of the only sites accessible to small trailers and tent trailers, especially since this site isn’t on the main northern road where the more crowded and busy trailer-accessible sites lie. Expect just a picnic table, fire ring, and room for about eight people (all the standard at Big Bend Ranch). As the name implies, you’ll get 360 degree vistas with spectacular sunsets over Mexico. Just realize that the price for such unobstructed views is high exposure to sun and wind, so check the forecast.

This is absolutely the best camping area I've ever been to! Gorgeous views. Spacious site. Far away from everything but amenities are close enough. I love this place and can't wait to go back! Best place to stargaze, peaceful and beautiful!
