We are planning a trip from Victoria, TX to Big Bend area beginning May 13. We are planning on taking our motorcycle bunkhouse camper too. We have never been out that way so we are not sure about camping facilities in the park area. What are must see's for us on the bike? Towns/areas to visit?

Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated.

I suggest the McDonald Observatory area, north of Fort Davis. If you haven't already, you might post this question in the General Forums under Motorcycles (subforum of Automobiles). It is HOT down near the Rio Grande. Be sure you have water to drink with you. Have a look at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa. Fort Davis has great food; everywhere I ate was exemplary. Sul Ross U. has the Museum of the Big Bend. When I go to that area, I never want to come back. Just ride!

You can see last year's guide and get a copy of the new one in the area.

Here is a link to my post of last July's Big Bend trip.

Camping facilities in the National Park are from mild to wild, deepending on how rough you want to camp.

Enjoyed reading your posts! By any chance was there still a place near Study Butte/Terlingua, actually a trailer, called The Hungry Javelina? We took a Big Bend trip...wow, it was about 5 or 6 years ago...and every morning my husband a daughter would head over to this place for breakfast. Like I said, it was just a trailer. You ordered your food at a window and then sat outside. I think I recall him saying they'd have a fire going. They loved that morning ritual and I've always wondered if it was still there.

Never mind! Answering my own question. It's now the Kosmic Kowgirl and you have a pic of it in that thread! Can't wait to show my husband, he just loved the whole vibe of that place.
