I am planning a 3-4 day trip to Big Bend NP over Thanksgiving. Don't have campsite reservations. Current plan is to arrive at the Park early in the morning (8AM?) the Friday (11/17) before Thanksgiving Week. What are my odds of getting a campsite at (1) Chisos Basin Campground, (2) a primitive roadside campsite in Pine Canyon, K-Bar or the like, or (3) Zone Camping (in Subaru Outback) somewhere near Chisos Mountains? Any and all recommendations/advice will be greatly appreciated!
Do you think we'll be ok rolling in late morning on a tuesday (nov. 21st) the week of thanksgiving? Checked for reservations at Chisos and RGV and they're both booked. We're hoping to snag a site at chisos but will settle for RGV if needed.
Thanks! I guess we'll try to arrive early as possible in the AM to better our odds. Is there a back up site just in case we're unable to get any sites at Chisos or RGV?
