Big Bend was the first stop on our road trip in our sprinter van RV and we made no reservations beforehand to camp in the park because they are always booked for months in advance online. The first night we stayed at Rio Grande Village, then we decided to check at the Chisos Basin campground for openings. We ended up staying two nights at the most scenic campground in west Texas! The facilities were nice and clean, and the panoramic views from our campsite were stunning! Close to the Window Trailhead and to Panther Junction. This spot is a must for the complete Big Bend experience!

This campground is not ideal for tent camping as the grounds provide no trees for shade, there are no campfires allowed, designated spots are very close together and everyone can see your business. There are indoor bathrooms and picnic tables. First come first serve.

Nice location and gorgeous beauty. The host are very friendly and helpful when selecting a site. The sites are a bit close, but the views make up for it! Enjoy the moment, and take a lot of pictures. Try to get here before noon to be sure to get a site. It fills up quickly!

Nestled in the Basin and close to many of the trailheads. There is also a store. No showers in the campground as this is a desert, but there is potable water available. Many of the sites have a covered pad which is a nice shelter from the sun. We pitched our tent under it. Paved roads and very nice.

It is fun camping at the Chisos Basin Campground. (CPC) It is close (within walking distance) to some excellent trail heads. Your just a few minutes from the Basin store that has Ice, food, refreshments, etc and also close to the restaurant. (No gas/diesel That's down at Panther Junction) The camping is self check-in: First thing is to stop at the self check-in and get the check-in envelope, drive around the loops and pick the spot that suits you, TURN OFF your engine at the spot, fill out the voucher and place the bottom half at the campsite marker pole. Now put the fee in the envelope and go back to check-in station and drop envelope into drop box. If you drive around after LIKING as spot, it could get selected as you putt around. The CPC is fun as your temporary front yard and back yard is some of the most beautiful scenery in the park. The CPC can also be 10-15 degF cooler in warmer months. The best thing about the CPC is the drive from Panther Junction road up to the campground. It is absolutely beautiful. Near by is Lost Mine Trail, you will drive to it. It is many peoples favorite day hike trail in the park, mine too.
