I think all the sites in the Basin campground are walk-up (non reservable) that time of year and that's the campground I'd want to be in in early September so it depends on when you arrive that weekend as far as odds of getting one.  Even better would be up in the Chisos backpacking.

Basin campsites are now reservable through May. Chances are decent at finding a walk-up site if you get there early in the morning. Check in with the campground host as soon as you get there and see what's open or coming open. Or head up into the mountains. :icon_wink:

I've snagged campsites in the Basin during Labor day holiday, however it will fill. If you can arrive in the morning on Thursday before the holiday weekend, you'll probably be OK. Even Friday morning might be OK.  After that....it will be dicey. The campground will be completely empty on Monday afternoon.

Thanks.  Decided not to risk it and made a reservation at BB State Park
