RVers, this one’s for you. Madera Canyon is the only campground other than Grassy Banks offering “trailer camping” within Big Bend Ranch. “Trailer camping” is a bit of a generous term here, though-- there are no hookups for water or electricity. In fact, the only amenities that this campground offers are a self-composting toilet and picnic table (this is actually more than most other spots in the park). The ‘primitive’ campground is one of the few spots in the park that won’t destroy the axles or undercarriage of your camper, though. And with canyon vistas and direct access to the Rio Grande, it’s a stunning spot to spend the night if you can do without luxuries.
