Camp sites at Chisos
« on: October 07, 2019, 02:02:27 PM »
I have a reservation for camp site 53 in Chisos Campground. The web site says it accommodates a trailer up to 20' which is what I have. But when I looked at the site via Google Earth, it doesn't look like there is room for a trailer and vehicle-(f-150 crew cab.) Does anyone know if we would fit or if we should select another site. Thanks

Site #53 is kind of small, more for tents than a camper. The parking there is just along the road as are a lot of them on loop#3.
I would try to maybe get #47 (which is one of my favorites). A number of the sites on the 1st loop - which aren't reservable-  might be better for a trailer as a few of them are pull throughs. #17 and #18 I believe, are long enough to back into.
- The 20' deal is just a general guide for max length on the twisty Basin road.
