Update: The national park is closed for camping during this time. We’re looking at alternative but the end of October might be too hot to camp on the desert floor.
We’ll have four nights in Big Bend National Park to explore some of the most scenic country in Texas, heck, the world!
There’s an abundance of natural riches to explore inside the park and activities include hiking, paddling, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, stargazing, and even a day trip to sunny Mexico. Organized activities will get posted to the BCO calendar as we get closer to the trip date and we’ll also have signup sheets available for each day’s activities, the night before.
Big Bend National Park encompasses more than 800,000 acres in southwest Texas. For more than 1,000 miles, the Rio Grande forms the international boundary between Mexico and the United States; Big Bend National Park administers approximately one-quarter of that boundary. Within the 118 twisting miles that also define the park’s southern boundary, the river southeasterly flows changes abruptly to the northeast and forms the “big bend” of the Rio Grande.
We are camping in the group campground in the Chisos Basin. We will have restrooms and sinks in the group camping area. There are pay showers near the hot springs that you can use. It’s a 45 min drive from camp so we plan for a mid-week shower. Bring quarters for the showers!
