Fodor's Expert Review Chisos Mountains Lodge
Big Bend National Park, Texas, 79834, USA
With ranger talks just next door at the visitor center, miles of hiking trails to suit all levels of fitness, and plenty of wildlife nearby, these comfortable rooms—some of which have been nicely remodeled—are a great place for families with kids. The lodge is also central to most activities within park boundaries. The majority of rooms are motel-style (some with balconies), but for a romantic getaway, reserve a stone cottage built by the Civilian Conservation Corps 70 years ago. Make advance reservations during the October-to-May busy season—up to a year's lead time is not out of the question for spring break and holidays.
