Spent three nights here in site #45. $14/night. We made our reservations www.recreation.gov and were glad as the campground sold out. There are two campground hosts on duty and they're on you pretty quick to make sure you're in the right spot. Not a lot of privacy at the sites, but each has a shelter, grill, picnic table and space... More

We chose to camp at Chisos Basin for the fact that it was in the mountains (cooler), and a smaller campground. Let me first address the only reason this rating is 4 and not a 5. I would give it a 4.5 if I could. Unfortunately, the park website does not advise about privacy of campsites. There are a few... More

This campground is really amazing! It's in the most beautiful spot. The weather in late February was perfect. Warm during the day with a cool breeze in the shade. Cold at night. It's in a basin, so there are 360 mountain views. A trip up to the lodge and window view trail makes for the most stunning sunsets you'll ever... More

Camping up there is unreal. The stars and scenery are unmatched. There is plenty of hiking available around the campground without having to drive to other parts of the park. For me, the Chisos is the coolest part of the park. Next time, I want to camp primitively all around the mountains, but the sites in the campground were great... More

My boyfriend and I just finished a 5 night stay at the Chisos Basin campground at site 54. As other reviewers have mentioned, 39 is the best spot and I agree but 54 was great too. The camp hosts were very friendly and ready to help and answer questions and the trails were really close by. Lack of showers was... More

I always loved the desert, and this phenomenal park offers you everything, but make sure to plan your visit during Fall, or Winter, because at Summer is TOO HOT! And there are a lot of rattlesnakes on every path you walk. The hotel is so peaceful, a perfect place to RELAX, and forget about the city. The last time I... More

My husband and I just spent 4 nights and enjoyed it so much! I would recommend it for some hiking during the day and great nights observing the night sky!! We stayed here in Chisos Basin since its still pretty warm and wanted the cooler nights. Of course, being surrounded by mountains are always a plus! We stayed at campsite... More

We went on a holiday weekend and the place was advertised as FULL as we drove inside the park. Luckily, it was about "check-out" time (12nn) and a lot of camp areas freed up. We set up our tent and then self-paid by the entrance to the campground. You take note of the campsite number, go back to the camp... More

There are a few important things to know about camping in Big Bend during the summer: 1.) Chisos Basin Campground is really the only camp ground worth trying to camp in during the summer months. The Rio Grand Valley and the Cottonwood campground are both every pretty, but it is just too hot to camp there in the summer. The... More

Tent camping here was really good, although was a bit chillier than we would have liked one of the nights (but that comes with the 5500 ft elevation territory). We liked spot #39, though I think there are other good sites as well that may be more private. Easy access to the window trail, and up to the pinnacles, boot... More
