Red Feather is nearly 8 acres of undisturbed land located deep in the Davis Mountains in far west Texas. Situated in southwestern Jeff Davis County and 5 miles from the highway on primitive roads, it is accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicles. We have a nice view of the McDonald Observatory (only 7.5 miles as the crow flies) and we are 35 minutes from Alpine and Marfa. 

*Please know this is a primitive campsite, there are no restrooms or trash receptacles.  You must be prepared to take out what you bring in.  Unfortunately, past guests have left it unkempt which makes us have to vet out who we will host.  Red Feather is not a spot for everyone, only experienced campers who have a true appreciation and respect for nature.  And if you do find the area untidy, please let us know.

Beautiful campsite! The views are gorgeous! Loved having the deck too! The horseshoes and dump truck were an added bonus and were loved by my boys!

Maybe our new favorite camp spot in Texas. Beautiful views of the Davis Mountains in every direction—and having the wood deck to enjoy is a huge bonus. Although the site sits in a small enclave of spread out vacation homes (I think) you’re very secluded and the only thing you’ll hear are the local donkey whom are honestly pretty hilarious to listen to. America is a terrific host and was quick to answer all of my questions about the site—including making Red Feather available to book late the night before after our attempts to find a good camp site had fallen thru further south in Terlingua. Man am I glad those plans did fall thru so that we could find this incredible site.

Was a great stay a very Spartan style sight as i like and expected. Well maintained host did a great job with the set up and little extras that were left to help enjoy the stay. My girl and i had a great time and loved getting away and disconnecting from everything. Nice and secluded nestled in the mountains. The stars were amazing and the altitude helped with the temp. The trail as was said was definitely a challenge to get up but fun and the jeep took it like a champ. All in all great stay and would do it again!! From an avid nature and adventure lover, and Veteran i thank yall and say well done. Hopefully we did good in clean up for yall tried to make it like we were never there as requested.

A great place for privacy & sunsets

America was very informative and helpful prior to and after our trip. I was glad we had 4 wheel to access the site which was a fun drive up. The views are amazing, and there is plenty of space & privacy with a wooden deck large enough for a family to stay out of the mud when it rains. The sunset despite some clouds was still magical at the top of the hill. There is a small silo type structure for bathrooms & showers (bring your own bags and water) that was a pleasant surprise. I can’t wait to come back and sleep under the stars on a not so cloudy night.

The view the view the view. The stars the stars the stars. So many it made us dizzy. If you want something truly off grid and private that exemplifies all of the grandeur of West Texas, this is it. The kids loved it too.

Took my 10 year old kiddo and my 10 year old nephew, and they were not allowed tablets or any tech. I thought I might have a hard time keeping them occupied, but they occupied themselves and had a blast. I think they just enjoyed being away, and this place feels “away.” We only heard a couple of airplanes overhead during our three days, but otherwise, just nature’s sounds. Very peaceful. At night, the donkeys sound off every now and then, and the boys thought that was hilarious.

We loved the daily afternoon thunderstorms. The valley below really comes to life after a rain here. I had planned to take daily excursions to the McDonald Observatory and Balmorhea, but both were closed. The boys are all in for a return trip to Red Feather to visit both.

Having a coffee at sunrise in the seating area above the campsite is a must. Magical.

We are huge fans of West Texas and love Big Bend and all of the surrounding towns.

When we heard about Hipcamp, we were crossing our fingers that we could find a private campsite off the beaten path. And let me tell you, Red Feather exceeded all of our expectations.

The adventure started when we got to use our all-wheel drive to climb the mountain to get to the site. Our first impression when we got out of the car was WOW! We were up at the top of the mountain with so many spectacular views.

There is a large deck where you can set up your chairs and hang out under the shady tree to take in the landscape. The owners leave a hammock that you can open up and use to relax and read a book. There is a picnic table with a nearby fire pit- so we were all set for meals.

There were several great spots to set up our tent which is perfect in case you have a group of people with multiple tents or if you want to try a new spot on your next trip out there.

As we began to explore, we realized there was a path we could walk up and at the end of the path was the most amazing overlook with incredible views of the mountains. The owners set up a cute vintage coffee table with chairs which we used every morning to have our coffee and every evening to watch the sunset. We spend hours sitting here enjoying the views and listening and watching all of the unique West Texas wildlife.

By far the most incredible part of the stay was when we ventured back up to that spot at night to see the stars. I have NEVER seen such an incredible starry night! You could see the Milky Way so clearly and there were shooting stars all night! It was an absolute dream and a must for any avid star gazer! 💫

We loved our visit so much and can’t wait to go back for another unforgettable experience!
