Probably one of my favorite camp sites in big bend, was right on the river with plenty of wildlife to see. Saw a wild mare and her foal a few times which was pretty cool. The story of Johnson’s ranch is pretty cool too and while driving in you can see foundations of old buildings and a few marked graves here and there.
Big Bend is a really unique place. The scale is amazing. The scenery can be breathtaking. So we had high hopes for our backcountry camping experience. We drove a very long way only to find that our campsite was 30 feet from the other campsite. What on earth is the point of packing people in together? Why not honor people's desire for a bit of privacy and quiet? It was really disappointing, and seemed unnecessary.
Other than that, we enjoyed a herd of wild pigs visit us during the night!
