Primitive, but perfect camp site

What an amazing find that Big Bend NP has primitive camping options.

This site is located off the road, with 2 registered camp sites. Pack in/Pack out, but all we really needed.

Incredible sunsets; amazing wildlive viewings.

Perfect. We spent Christmas here.

Awesome, Incredibly beautiful sunset!

Big Bend is absolutely amazing. There are several primitive roadside campsites. Ive spent several weeks exposing these. You could find yourself at one of the many sites without seeing anyone for days. Croton spring is perfect for just that. Its 3 or 4 single car sites but for a larger vehicle maybe 2 sites. You would not be able to find trees for hammocking here. Tents absolutely.

There are no amenities here so carry in carry out. I could imagine after a good rain the road could be difficult with 2 wheel drive. Spend a night or week and may not see another group. Absolutely amazing sunset here and in the rest of big bend,

Cheers!
