Rate is full rate for dry camping. Senior Pass is $7 per night. Excellent tent campground. Fair campground for small pop-ups, travel trailers and motorhomes. Pull-through sites are really just parking along wide spot in road. Road side slides may not work. Small rigs only. Though some up to 30' will fit a few spots - they won't be level. No real level RV parking anywhere in campground. There are no showers available at any NPS campground in Big Bend NP. Only pay showers at Rio Grande Village. The scenery, and cooler weather in summer, makes Chisos Basin worth a visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Extraordinary views surrounding campsite. Well worth the winding road into campground. Suggest you arrive in daylight because the campground is laid out curiously. Many spots are tight to get into and not very level. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

This campground has generator use areas, but if you're trying to get in there with anything over 30' forget it. The road is fine, but the sites are small and even 30' would be pushing it. On the plus side, it is up in the basin and close to hiking. They have wi-fi up in the lodge, and restaurant and bar service are available up there. Paved roads and gravel sites. Make reservations to insure you get a site that's big enough for your rig, and you can run a generator if you need it. Also remember that it's 10-15 degrees cooler up there than the Rio Grand campground. Note the price was with the 50% senior discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.

As with many National Park campgrounds, really great scenery but no hookups or showers. Does have flush toilets, dump station, water points, and a pay phone (you are way out of cell phone range). Most sites have a covered picnic table, grill, and large steel food safe. There is a 24 foot maximum limit on length for good reason. The only access road has several hairpin cutbacks and the campsites are quite small and close together. Near ranger station, ampitheater with frequent ranger programs, lodge, well-stocked store, restaurant, and several trailheads with many hikes for all abilities. In the mountains, so somewhat cooler than down at the river campgrounds. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

This is a beautiful location with awesome views. The sites are close together, but the place is fairly quiet anyway. You would not be able to get into this park with a big rig. We have a small Class B and that was easy to drive in and out, but I would not drive in anything larger than 30 ft or so. They have flush toilets, but no showers and no hook ups. There is a dump station and fresh water is available. There had been a mountain lion spotted in the park just before we arrived and there are javalinas running around, so be sure to keep your dogs inside and keep a close watch on small children. We camped here in a Motorhome.
