No need to infringe on the Constitutional rights of law abiding citizens visiting the park.

Cheers,

The Pine Springs tent camping area is small and can typically fill by Thursday evening for popular weekends. The good news is that the NPS folks are pretty cool and will let "tenters" sleep in their cars or pickups in the RV area if spaces are available and the tent area is full. This was the case for my group. Still nice picnic tables available around the RV space. You just cannot pitch a tent there. The park enforces quiet time after 8 PM so you don't have to worry about generators going all night long. The flexibility to stay in the RV lot is good because other drive-up camping options are a LONG drive away.

Midland-Odessa Airport (Texas)is about 200 miles away, but may be a better bet if you're also heading to Big Bend on the same trip, as it is 90 miles closer to BB than El Paso is. You have to compare the airfares and cost of car rental at each place.
