In the heart of Big Bend National Park, you'll find the uniquely located Chisos Mountains Lodge nestled in the basin of the majestic Chisos Mountains. As the only lodging in the park, our accommodations provide modern comforts with our famous Texas hospitality. Our guests are treated to stunning scenery and serenity, as well as a vast undisturbed wilderness, all within a quick walking distance to our services and easy access to many of the park's world famous hiking trails.
Once you visit the Chisos Mountains Lodge, you will also experience Civilian Conservation Corps history. In the early 1930's, crews built the 7 mile stretch that is now known as the Basin road using only picks, shovels, rakes, and a dump truck that they loaded by hand. By 1941, a second camp built the Lost Mine Trail and the 6 Roosevelt Stone Cottages that are still in use today.
Round out your visit with gift shopping and dining at the Lodge. Our gift shop curio features merchandise created by local and Mexican artisans as well as a selection of Big Bend gifts, apparel, housewares, toys, and games. The restaurant offers tasty fare from early morning to evening and to-go breakfast and lunches for hikers. Enjoy wonderful views from the restaurant or outside on our patio, and be sure to stop by our lounge for a drink. The Basin Camp Store offers groceries, camping necessities, and snacks. Free limited WiFi is available in our gift shop and on the patio.
