Leaving the cool dry air of the Chiso Basin area, the 38-mile drive to the Rio Grande Village Campground takes the tent camper through 3,600 feet of elevation loss and expanses of the Chihuahuan Desert that appear endless, with the drive ending with an arrival in a shaded oasis which seems almost tropical. While the campground is on a level area adjacent to the Rio Grande River, the opposite side of the river contains massive limestone rock formations in the area known as Boquillas Canyon.
