I can't tell if all of these pictures were taken after the renumbering or not. Anybody care to do some QA?http://www.campsitephotos.com/campground/Chisos-Basin
The map found on recreation.gov is the most recent one.We have not posted a map on our website because the Chisos Basin campground is still being worked on, as far as numbering. There may also be some rerouting of traffic flow, as well as changes in some of the numbers, so our website coordinator is waiting for all this work to be completed before posting a final map.
If we hike down into the basin on a Wednesday of Spring Break 2013. (3/13/13). What are the odds that our 2 man group could find a place to sleep and hike out the next day? I just checked and the lodge and the 25 or so reservable sights are booked.
Richard, Thank you for the information. I am going to guess that there is a good chance that zones near the OML and designated sites in the Chisos may be filled by Saturday, March 9, anyway.I would love to be able to hike from the desert into the mountains, camp at the Basin and dayhike back to the car. However, I am planning three to four back up itineraries for a four-night trip.
