Primitive Roadside Campsite— Camp de Leon
NPS Photo/Big Bend National Park
Camp de Leon (CL-1) can accommodate one vehicle, 6 people, no horses.
Camp de Leon (CL-1) is located along the Old Ore Road, 3.6 miles from the main paved road to Rio Grande Village.
Old Ore Road is maintained for high clearance vehicles only. Following rains and heavy use, the road becomes very rutted and requires 4-wheel drive. Always ask a park ranger for current road conditions.
Camp de Leon is wide open and surrounded by lechuguilla and creosote.
Camp de Leon has fantastic panoramic views of the Chisos, Chilicotal, and Sierra San Vicente.
