Beautiful and amazing place you can't believe you have all these different environments in one same place. Beautiful in the border with Mexico. Big park so one weekend camping will not be enough to discover it all. Amazing to come back over and over again.

If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Almost 300,000 acres, many of the campsites are serviced by "unimproved" dirt roads. The first time I went the campsite was a full 1.5 hours in 4-lo off the main (gravel) road. Our group of 3 didn't not see another human being for 4 days, except when going up to the Ranger Station/Park Hdqts. And this was over spring break week!
If you like the Chihuahuan Desert for its emptiness, ruggedness, and beautiful light, this is your place.
I'm going back!

This Big Bend Ranch State Park is huge! It runs along the Rio Grande from Presidio to Lajitas; it was a private ranch in years past. There are miles and miles of 4X4 trails, and just about that many for hiking. A very rocky area; one should not go out alone, and make sure you have water, and minimum 6 - 8 ply tires! It is referred to as "The other side of nowhere!"
