About La Monilla Campsite

Description

This is a no frills campsite, even by Big Bend Ranch standards. A campfire ring and picnic table is all you’re getting, apart from some remnants of a bygone era—ruined pens and watering sources from when the area was used for ranching. Flatter than a pop artist pre-autotune, you can see for miles around and get a pretty nice view of Solitario. It’s a good spot for two types of Read more...
This is a no frills campsite, even by Big Bend Ranch standards. A campfire ring and picnic table is all you’re getting, apart from some remnants of a bygone era—ruined pens and watering sources from when the area was used for ranching. Flatter than a pop artist pre-autotune, you can see for miles around and get a pretty nice view of Solitario. It’s a good spot for two types of people: those who want complete calm and seclusion (it only fits 8 people, and will rarely come close to that) and those who want complete insanity—this site is located just off of one of the park’s most difficult but exciting mountain biking courses.

Contrary to the main description here, this site is not flat w/long views. It's actually nestled between the foothills of the Bofecillos, which provides shelter from the winds that can be an issue at more exposed sites (good for cold weather camping). There are no vistas here, however, so it's a trade-off, but it's not a far drive/hike/bike ride to get to some sweeping views. This is very close to several trailheads making it a great home base for several nights. There is no shade structure here as at other sites in this park, & the desert sun can be brutal. You need 4WD high clearance vehicle to get to this site. One hill on the road in has a few hairy spots to navigate & the road to the actual site is overgrown w/vegetation.
