***Self-Guided Trip Planning

Almost all roads and trails are currently open at Big Bend National Park!

Bookstores and visitor centers are expected to remain closed for several weeks, although BBNHA now offers a limited selection of books, guides, and souvenirs for sale at peak hours on the Panther Junction patio.

If you intend to visit Big Bend during the phased reopening, planning ahead is crucial to a safe trip. In addition to one or more of the following guidebooks, we highly recommend consulting the park's main website frequently for important safety updates.

Campgrounds, most primitive roadside sites, and most designated mountain hike-in sites remain available by advance reservation through www.recreation.gov. Permits for desert wilderness backpacking, overnight river trips, and some limited-access drive-in sites can be made in person during business hours on the Panther Junction patio. Please note that you MUST have a permit or reservation in advance to be able to stay overnight inside the park. There is NO first-come, first-served camping. If you don't have a reservation and you arrive outside of business hours, you must find a spot outside the park. See the main Big Bend National Park website, www.nps.gov/bibe , for full information on what's open and how to reserve a campsite.
