I would call. Some years ago, we camped there a couple of times. We were run off because we weren't licensed and hunting. I've heard rumor that has changed.
I have been considering driving from SA for an overnight at Black Gap Wildlife area- just staying in my auto, up early to bird - and wondered about how safe it may be for a woman to do that. Anyone been camping there?
No phone(s)! No light(s)! No motor car(s)!Not a single luxury, Like Robinson C-ru-soe, it's primitive as can be.
Access restricted to Maravillas and Horse Canyons, Rio Grande and the headquarters campsite from March 1 to August 31.
Heath Canyon Ranch - Off Texas Hwy. 2627, Heath Canyon Ranch overlooks the Rio Grande and is an important access point for river runners who have floated through Boquillas Canyon, and for those starting out for the mysterious Lower Canyons. We are talking remote. Camping, boat launch, airstrip, cafe. It is at the lower end of TX 2627, 28 miles from the U.S. Hwy. 385 junction. Call before you go if you want to eat. 432 376-2235.
FM 2627 at the Rio Grande: You want wide-open spaces and rugged mountains? You've got them on the drive to the Open Sky Cafe at the Heath Canyon Guest Ranch. Although the accommodations are no-frills, the tiny cafe sits amid pretty plantings and dishes up creditable steaks, fajitas, and fat handmade burgers plus great jalape?o-spiked panfried potatoes. From U.S. 385, go southeast on FM 2627 for about 30 miles, 915-376-2235; no credit cards.

.....Here, on the U.S. side of the river, I found Heath Canyon Guest Ranch with rooms, bunkhouse, TV and tent camping, and a tiny cafe with Mexican food (432-376-2235).
Interesting link here, about people doing a motorcycle trek from Del Rio through Mexico either to La Linda or Presidio. Someone suggested that they call Heath Canyon to check on the water flow in case they wanted to forge the river from La Linda to Texas. :idea: There is a RICHARD moderator over there? Is that the same as our RichardM? - RichardModerator?http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?p=89913
