Best day to enter for campsite availabitiy weekend of 4/7?
« on: March 04, 2018, 04:18:04 PM »
Hey everyone!  I am trying to zero in on a date to visit Big Bend and do some hiking and camping in the mountains.   I am looking at the first week or two of April, but have a bit of flexibility.  My question is, if I end up starting my hike on a Saturday morning (April 7) would getting a permit for a campsite in the mountains be difficult?  I would plan to come in Friday afternoon and get the permit and then either stay in a lodge or camp at the basin.  Would it be better to start out on Sunday morning instead--assuming many people hike out on Sunday?  Thanks in advance for your advice.
