Big Bend National Park, TX - Dec 21st to Dec 24

The geographically diverse Big Bend National Park in southwest Texas has a combination of improved and back-country roads from the forested Chisos Mountains basin to the Chihuahuan high desert plains at nearly 8,000 ft.

Although camping is permitted in the back-country, reservations are not available and the sites are not large enough for group camping. We have reserved 2 group camping sites that can accommodate a maximum of 4 vehicles each. There is a minimum requirement of 9 people at each camp site so RSVP early so that we can get a headcount well in advance.

We are traveling from Jacksonville, FL to Big Bend with overnight stops in Pensacola/Gulf Shores and San Antonio. Let us know if you want to meet up along the way!
