Hannold Draw (HD-1) can accommodate 3 vehicles, 20 people. Corral can accommodate 8 horses.
 
Directions
Hannold Draw (HD-1) is located 4.8 miles north of Panther Junction on Route 11 (toward Persimmon Gap). A short, 0.25 mile gravel access road leads to the campsite area. The turnoff is not marked; watch your odometer.
 
Road Conditions
The access road is generally well-maintained and accessible to all passenger vehicles. Following rains, the road may become very rutted and high-clearance vehicles may be necessary.
 
Vegetation
There is no shade at this site. Vegetation in the vicinity is sparse, mostly creosote and lechuguilla.
 
Views
There is a good view of the Chisos Mountains to the north and the Sierra del Carmen range is visible to the distant east. The site is in a low draw.
 
Cautions
Javelina frequent this area. Secure all food in your vehicle, including coolers. Pick up all trash. Javelina become aggressive around food.
 
Remarks
Hannold Draw 1 (HD-1) is a sizeable campsite area suitable for several tents or a large RV. A cleared area south of the campsite is a gravel stockpile used by the park’s road crew. The draw just to the east of the site may have flowing water following heavy rain.
