High Chisos availability
« on: September 21, 2012, 06:26:16 PM »
I am planning a trip that has  two nights camping in the high chisos primitive campsites and then two nights in the basin motel.

It would be great to do the campsites first (am itching to do it) but I am worried there will be no sites.   (I have a motel reservation for 4 days and will cancel 2 of them)

Any ideas on if I should be concerned for available late October campsites.  Will be arriving around 11am from San Antonio.

Looking to have 1st night in Laguna and 2nd on SE rim.

Thanks!

You shouldn't have any problems getting a site.  You might not get your first choice, but you will be able to get a site at that time of year.

I agree.  If Laguna happens to be full (which I doubt, especially if you factor in the 3 Laguna West sites), then surely one on the Pinnacles trail will be available.  The rim itself could possibly be a problem, especially if you have your heart set on one particular site, but as long as you are flexible, I'll doubt you'll have a problem.
Wake me when it's time to go.
