Where to stay in Big Bend National Park

To spend the night in Big Bend National Park, pitch your tent in one of three developed campgrounds or bunk down in one of the rooms or cottages at the Chisos Mountains Lodge. Of the three campgrounds, Chisos Basin, known for colorful mountain sunsets, is easiest to reach. Rio Grande Village and Cottonwood, however, provide scenic settings of their own along the Rio Grande River. A few motels lie just outside the park, but options are limited. If you need a broader range of choices, consider staying in Marfa, a two-hour drive north of the heart of the park.
