62 acres of Texas ranch land. Cows wandering around nearby, and a drink tank on the property. Other wildlife includes quail, coyotes, javelinas, mule deer and more! We are setting aside funds for an ecological restoration project, and want the land to be useful in the meantime so we have put it on Hipcamp!

It's a short hike to the stunning views from the top of the hill, and ammonite fossils at the crest of the hill are just sticking right out of the ground! Can you find them?

The land was gorgeous with plenty of places to camp. A word of caution, BE CAREFUL if you are driving a 2wd vehicle. The road out there was rough on my Toyota Camry. If it had rained when I was out there the road would have been way too muddy, and I would have been stuck out there. That being said the rough journey there paid off with a wonderful night under the billions of stars, and the feeling of being totally isolated from the world.

It's remote and super quiet with amazing views. Hard to beat the night skies . There was zero light or noise pollution. Monsoon season made the roads rather challenging but we have a high clearance vehicle and it was worth it.

This is the spot to camp! Pure desert isolation with beautiful scenery and nature. I had a 2wd and was totally fine on the roads. Lots of spots to camp and I hiked up the hill to find even more spots!

Great place to desert camp and cows will be your camping neighbors.

We camped on the hill and couldn’t see a single light for miles and miles. It was a truly magical escape. Highly recommend for those who want to enjoy dark skies and peaceful isolation.

Great place in stay in the middle of the West Texas desert, with only the coyotes to keep you company.
