Welcome to our secluded desert mountain escape! With only one campsite, nestled in a quiet valley, you'll be able to unwind and relax. You will be hosted by recognized Super Hosts. There is a wonderful view of mountains and valleys with diverse and ever-changing geography, wildlife such as deer, javelina, fox, birds, and the occasional bear or wild cat. To top it off, the 360 degree view of the unobstructed sky lends itself perfectly to stargazing at night! 

The camp site provides a level camp pad, privy (currently under construction - with portable camp toilet and hooks for solar shower bags), a picnic table, wood/charcoal BBQ grill, non-potable and trash disposal on site. There is also a campfire ring so you can toast marshmallows or just cozy up!

It is a scenic 45 minutes drive to Big Bend National Park - be sure and visit the Dinosaur exhibit, Santa Elena Canyon, the Boquillas Overlook, the Hot Springs, Chisos Basin! Also, the Rio Grande River has water rafting available, so there is definitely something for everyone! 

There are plenty of opportunities to get out and explore - you can hike many trails on our property or within 1 mile of the campsite.  If you have mountain bikes, ATVs/UTVs feel free to bring them and enjoy riding along miles of dirt road starting right from the campsite!

We hope you'll enjoy the wonderful the beautiful sunrises, wildlife, and solitude as much as we do!

My stay was great! Beautiful desert scenery. The nearby hills were accessible for easy-to-moderate hiking. I made good use of the shade of the "outhouse" during the hot part of the day and well as enjoyed the sunrises, sunsets and the view of the stars at night. I made an easy and enjoyable day trip to Study Butte, Terlingua and Lajitas.

Some local traffic on the nearby dirt road and some party and vehicle (motorcycle) noise from the nearby Terlingua Ranch lodge, but it wasn't an obnoxious amount.

I appreciated the availability of the non-potable water barrel and the flat tent pad. Firepit was well constructed and situated to block the wind.

I plan to come back. Thanks!

Awesome spot for a little secluded getaway. Just to witness the night sky without any light pollution was well worth the trip. Stars are amazing out there. Mark & Michelle were great host and quick to respond to all my question. Seriously, if you’re looking for a little secluded camping gateway from all hustle and bustle of life! Look no further.

Had a great stay, place is as described and has tremendous views. If you’re looking for some solitude in the big bend area that’s close enough to the lodge for a shower - this is the place.
