Trip report: Black Gap Wildlife Management Area. West TX


Been wanting to visit this area and found a perfect weather window. Overnite mid 40’s and daytime in high 60’s. I gathered up both my pup’s and went for it.
It is definitely a long haul to get there. But rewarding imo. Free camping is allowed at the designated campsites on a first come basis but you must have a
Limited Public Use Permit (LPU) that can be purchased at any Academy for $12 before arriving. I would not suggest pulling any travel trailers other than a serious
offroad Overlander type. 4X4 is good to have but not really necessary unless it has rained recently.

From park Head Quarters it is 14 miles of primitive road to the Rio Grande River. Along the river there are multiple campsites (25 qty) that
have a covered 10’ x 20’ cement slab, park style BBQ pit and fire ring/grate. I spent 2 days at my campsite exploring the area and saw no other persons.
Really a good time.
