Staying at Chisos mountains or Terlingua?
« on: February 28, 2019, 09:21:11 AM »
Hi, me and my family are going to make reservations soon, maybe this week, to go to big bend this may, on the new moon to see the milky way. This would be our first time there. So my question is, which is a better place to stay? The chisos mountain Lodge, or in terlingua? We may have another family come with us, but they are not sure yet

I'd be highly surprised if you could get reservations at the lodge, but check. Plenty of cool places to stay in Terlingua.

Based on my experience I'd say it depends on what part of May. Chances go up if it's late May and you only want a few days.  As Talusman suggests, give it a try.  If you want to hike in the Chisos then I'd stay at the Lodge if possible. Park speed limits are 45 MPH and it's a long way from Terlingua to the Basin.
