“A good option for backcountry RVers.”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2016

Overall Rating

This is one of the few backcountry sites in Big Bend NP that will comfortably accommodate an RV trailer or big rig. There’s a large area here off the dirt road to pull into, turn around, back up, etc. The trade off is that technically it’s two spots in one (GH 2/3). Don’t let this discourage you too much though. Unless it’s high season, the odds of someone else camping with you are low because who wants to reserve a backcountry site right next to another camper? (When you reserve the site, the ranger can tell you if anyone else has currently booked the neighboring spot.) Even if you do end up sharing the site with someone else, it’s not too bad. I’ve parked in much tighter conditions in every single RV park I’ve visited.

This location is pretty well located with easy access to Chisos Basin and Panther Junction. Not to mention you’re most of the way down the dirt road that leads to the Balanced Rock hike.

As far as cellular data, the AT&T 3G is quite good.
