Camping in the Big Bend is a one of a kind experience and there's something for everyone out here. We're listing just a few of the many camping options in the area. If you're looking for great camping with a little extra comfort, check out the Arroyo campground at Basecamp Terlingua. Located just outside the ghost town on Kempf Road, each campsite has a private fire pit, running water and electricity. The campground features a luxurious bathhouse with 5 private showers (rainfall heads and heated floors), 5 private toilets and a coffee room with (free) unlimited coffee. The bathhouse has WiFi and complimentary toiletries as well. 

Ocotillos Village is another great option for camping near the ghost town. They also offer some super cool stargazer a-frame tents for a little extra comfort.

Naturally, there is great camping inside the National and State parks. Both offer an assortment of sites, some being more remote than others. Check out their websites for more info.
