Backcountry Management Plan

Big Bend National Park » Backcountry Management Plan » Document List

Big Bend National Park is revising the existing (1995) Backcountry Management Plan. This document directs park management on wilderness and backcountry use topics, including backpacking, primitive car camping, backcountry use limits, and other considerations.

This plan requires periodic updating to make sure it fits the current needs of the park, which has seen rapidly increasing visitor use and changing use patterns in recent years. Please note that front country spaces, such as developed campgrounds, visitor centers, and paved roads are not included in Backcountry Management
