I'm glad that you had a good inaugural trip into the heart of the park! With that said, I typically DO NOT encourage people to haul RVs or travel trailers into the interior. While we do not prohibit such an action it is imperative that you know what you are getting into if you so choose to do so. The road in is graded but is still quite rough with only a limited few places to turn a large vehicle around. Further, once you do get in there are only a handful of campsites (e.g. Agua Adentro Pens, South Leyva, Papalote Encino) that can even start to accommodate an RV or travel trailer. Further, there are no hookups of any kind anywhere in the park and there is no place to dump your waste until you get well outside the park itself. We have had numerous folks bring RVs out and most have experienced near disasters in the process, leaving sheared fragments of their adventure scattered along the road back to civilization. Like I said, I'm glad it worked out this time, but this trip sounds like an outlier from the pattern based on what I have seen.
Nice report and pics! Having not been to the State Park before it makes me want to check it out. What kind of Big Agnes was that - did the awning hold up well in the wind? Thanks for sharing!
