Boquillas Border Crossing is Now Open!
Chisos Mountains Lodge welcomes you to Big Bend
Stay in the only lodge inside beautiful Big Bend National Park and enjoy incredible sweeping views, comfortable accommodations and convenient, friendly services. At Chisos Mountains Lodge, you're steps away from nearby hiking trails and access to the park's wonders.
The Boquillas Border Crossing has been re-opened after being closed for over ten years. This "pedestrian only" crossing between the United States and Mexico adds a new layer of fun and adventure to a Big Bend National Park visit. The crossing offers a unique opportunity to ride across the river in a row boat, or, if the water is low enough, wade across the Rio Grande (Check with officials for river conditions)! Current posted hours to re-enter the US are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
Camping & RV sites are also available in the park with 194 well-defined campsites, many with water and full-hookups for RVs.
Get the most out of your visit to Big Bend with an overland or national park guided tour. Experienced tour guides show you many of the hidden gems and historic wonders in the park. Tours are available in half and full-day adventures. Reservations are recommended.
Round out your visit with gift shopping and dining at the Lodge. The restaurant and patio offers tasty fare from early morning to evening. Enjoy wonderful views from the restaurant and al fresco dining on the patio (in season).
We look forward to seeing you at Chisos Mountains Lodge on your visit to Big Bend National Park.
