Spring Break is the busiest time of the year; I'd get there early (and have a back up plan). The park also has drive in back country sites that you can use as a base, but none in the mountains. The mountain trails will also be busy, maybe consider some desert hiking.
Hey there.. This is the same person with a real username. Appreciate all of the advice. I called Big Bend this morning to make reservations - and lo and behold - they're booked solid. Now from what I've read the back-country sites are all able to be reserved 24 hours in advance, in person? This is going to be a spring break trip. If I drive from Dallas to Big Bend over night and arrive around 7am on Friday, what would you say the likely hood of getting a backcountry permit would be? Sorry for the lack of detail before. Leeeet me know. :-)David
