“Amazing boondocking experience in Big Bend”

Overall Rating

We got to spend two nights at this site. One night in CS1 and another in CS2. CS1 is the more level site by far. I had to use an extreme angle to get level on CS2. It's one big open space and we were fortunate enough to have no one else camping next to us!
Every site in big bend is nice, but if you can get a site to yourself, it's so much better!
The hiking path behind it is not that great, but it made for a good walk in the mornings.
It's also very close to the main road, but over a hill so it's private and you can't hear the cars on the main road at all. We walked out in the middle of the night and watched the stars without anyone else around and loved it!
