Backcountry camping in Big Bend National Park is the ultimate way to experience the magic that is Big Bend.
Recently, we scouted all of the Primitive Roadside Campsites on the “improved” dirt roads. There are many more place to camp on “primitive” dirt roads, but according to the National Park, the primitive roads “may be rocky with areas of soft sand that are unsafe for sedans or RVs.”
There are 3 campgrounds and 1 RV park in Big Bend, the rest of the markers on the map below represent backcountry camping.
Primitive camping at Big Bend isn’t first come first serve in the traditional sense. Upon arrival, you’ll want to go straight to Panther Junction (the main visitor center). There is a lot of competition for these campsites, so it’s a good idea to get your spot squared away first thing.
