Campsite Specifics
Talley 1(TY-1) and Talley 2 (TY-2) can each accommodate 2 vehicles, 8 people, no horses.
Talley Road is located along the River Road, 23.2 miles from the main paved road to Rio Grande Village. The TY-1 site is located at the Talley/River Road junction. TY-2 is located 5.1 miles down the Talley Road.
Road Conditions
River Road is maintained for high clearance vehicles only. After rains, River Road and Talley Road are extremely muddy and may quickly become impassable to all vehicles. 4-wheel drive may be required.
TY-1 and TY-2 have no shade. They are located far from the river with a gravel base.
TY-1 and TY-2 offer beautiful views of the Chisos and Mariscal Mountain.
River Access
The river can accessed at the end of the road. Boats must be carried a short distance down a bank to the river.
Do not cross the river and enter Mexico. Report any contacts with Mexican Nationals to rangers. To minimize the possibility of theft, secure belongings when away from these campsites and while sleeping. Do not leave your property unattended for long periods of time.
The primitive Mariscal Rim Trail begins near the end of the road.
