Al and Cindy K,
We made it to Chisos Basin on this trip, just a few weeks ago. When we were setting up our Scamp
19 at site #9, someone in an RV with TX plates in the site next to us asked me if I come to visit every year! I said that was our first time there, but I also said that thought I knew who that regular visitor might be. The site #47 was taken, but we came without a reservation anyway and site 9 was really nice.
When we entered the park, late afternoon, there were no sites at Chisos, so we started at the Rio Grande Village and the following early morning we drove up to Chisos and grabbed a site and did some hiking. Then we went back to do laundry, pick up the trailer and set up at the Basin. We spent four days there. It is a wonderful place, so different from any other National Park! Thanks for the tips and recommendations.
