We are cruising through the gulf coast of Tx. and started off in Big Bend Nat Park. What a neat place. The Rio Grande, Chisos mountains and of course, the desert. Lots to see and do especially if you have a toad capable of enduring some pretty rough back country roads. A duel sport motorcycle would also be a good choice. A decent park at the Rio Grande RV Park. Full hookups with 50 amp for $27/night. There is also a "dry" campground next door but not really suitable for larger rigs. If you are ever nearby, give it a try. It is isolated and not easy to get to but well worth the drive, especially since fuel is cheaper in Texas!

Craig & Sharon: Hi. Yup, we agree!! We hung out over in Study Butte/Terlingua during our visit to Big Bend, and, as you said, it was a GREAT place to visit. We will surely return! Steve & Lynette

How can you say that the dry campground next door is unsuitable for big rigs. We were there in January with our 41 footer - plus three feet of bikes on the back - and had no problem.

Rather stay there in the trees at half the price ($7 with Golden Age Pass) than on a parking lot. Just my humble opinion.

Additional advice - Backpack in the Chisos and paddle the Rio Grande from Rio Grande Village to La Linda. Great canyon hikes on the Mexican side of the river down the Boguillas Canyon.
