Paying for campsite
« on: November 05, 2018, 08:08:29 AM »
Good morning all,
  At the self pay stations for Chisos Basin,  is it best to pay with a check? I imagine putting cash in envelopes would not be a good idea and credit cards would not be an option? Just getting my ducks in a row :)

Thanks so much

I always pay with cash. Once you stuff your envelope you drop it in a locked box, so there’s no risk of theft.

Cash works fine. Just drop the envelope into the slot in the vault and you are good to go.

Checks are fine.

Once upon a time you could fill out credit card info. That changed a few years ago. I usually stock up on singles and tens and pay one night at a time. That's because my fellow campers often lose their enthusiasm for sleeping on the ground midway through a trip.  :icon_rolleyes:
