Compliments of someone else who managed to snag a copy:
Quote
site designation ET-1 ET-2
Capacity:   
vehicles 2 1
persons 10 6
horses no no

How to Get There:
Via the Old Ore Road, south end. ET-2 is located 3.6 miles from the main paved road. The access road to ET-1 is 4.5 miles from the main paved road (approximately 21.5 miles from the Dagger Flat Auto Trail). ET-1 access road is 0.2 miles long and terminates at the trailhead to the tinajas.

Usual Road Conditions:
High clearance is highly recommended.  Ask a Park Ranger for the latest road conditions.

Ground Cover/Shade:
ET-1 is surrounded by gravel hills with creosote bush. No real shade is available, but it is slightly protected from wind by the low hills.

ET-2 is wide open and surrounded by lechuguilla and creosote bush. There is no shade.

Views:
From ET-1, good view of the Chisos Mountains between the low gravel hills.

From ET-2, fantastic panoramic views of the Chisos Mountains, Chilicotal Mountain, and San Vicente Mountain.

River Access:
None

Cautionary Notes:
High clearance vehicles are highly recommended.

Remarks:
The tinajas are in the wash near ET-1. The first tinaja (Ernst) can be reached by a 10-minute hike up the sandy wash. Do not swim or bathe in the tinajas. Water is not potable.

A backcountry use permit is required (free of charge and available at visitor centers).

Looks like ET-2 is no longer open.
