It’s all well and good to set up camp at some high, exposed campsite with a view, but then you’re subject to wind and sun. Take the low road, however, and you arrive at the small and secluded Fresno Canyon campsite. We should mention that ‘the low road’ is traversable via horseback or four-wheel-drive only, so don’t bother coming with a horse trailer or Toyota Corolla. More sheltered than most of the other sites around Big Bend Ranch, this campsite also offers hitch rails for equestrians, two picnic tables, and two fire rings. There is also a nearby water source, but check with the park to see if it’s flowing during your visit. Oh, and lest you forget, it’s in a freaking canyon. How many times do you get to say you camped in a canyon?
