The have 44 sites available on line available for next Monday for a [email protected] $ 14 per night.....


It could very well be my unfamiliarity with the workings of the new recreation.gov website but I couldn't find any single site available for all days between 2/04 and 2/11 at the NPS RGV campground. I couldn't even find any sites available for two or more nights in a row for the entire month. March and most of April seem to be almost as bad. Same pattern goes for The Basin.

If I'm missing something, please straighten me out. We're planning to visit in May and this may be indicative of higher use than I've seen in the past. We're hoping to get one of the boondocking sites but even those might be taken with this degree of usage. I've seen the Park full between Christmas and New Years and in mid-March for Spring Break but nothing like this.

Be aware of some area closures at Big Bend for the next several months

Link wouldn't work for me but the only closure I'm aware of is for some sections of the trails leading up to the South Rim due to the falcons nesting. Its a fairly hard core hike up to that area so I don't think this would impact the average visitor too badly.

Try this

Big Bend Closures

The areas closed to public entry from February 1 through May 31 are:

The Southeast Rim Trail and a portion of the Northeast Rim Trail from the Boot Canyon/Southeast Rim junction to a point just north of Campsite NE-4.
All Southeast Rim campsites as well as Northeast (NE) campsites 4 and 5 are closed during this period.
Technical rock climbing on rock faces within ΒΌ mile of known peregrine eyries, as posted, will not be allowed between February 1 and July 15.
The National Park Service does not plan to close any other areas, but restrictions may be modified if Peregrine behavior or nesting sites do not follow traditional trends.

Thanks for much great advice. We've decided to go with Stillwell because we have pets and may need to run our air conditioners if the days get too hot.

You'll enjoy Stillwell. Be sure and drive to the end of the road... I think if you look up "middle of nowhere" there will be a picture of Stillwell.

We plan on going back some day.
