This is not a typical RV park or RV site.  This is not a typical camping site.  This is a 1/2 acre lott located on the edge of a small town.  A primitive site.  Please read the full description and look at the pictures to get a good idea of what this site is.  This camping site is more for folks traveling I-10 that need a cheap place to camp for the night because it sits on a long stretch of interstate without any options for camping.  There is one house to the West, one house to the East and the other houses on the block are all vacant.  There is no RV pad or tent pad to setup on, you just park and setup on the grass.  It borders two large ranches on the South and East and has an amazing view of the mountains.  There is a small grove of tress for shade and water on the property.    There is a public county restroom located by the county swimming pool.  Contact me for directions to these locations or for anything else needed.  

There are no stores or gas stations in this town.  

Check in and Check out times are flexible.  If you are interested in any local attractions contact me.  There is an art studio a mile away.  There is a historic fort a few miles away.  A shooting range about a mile away.  And there are a few GeoCache in the area.

Feel free to park your vehicle or camper anywhere on the grass around the Sheffield Camping sign and trees.  If heavy rains are expected you may want to contact me to avoid parking in a low/flood area.

A no nonsense, quiet residential lot in sleepy Sheffield, TX just off I-10. Just right for a boondock or self contained overnighter. We were in a 4runner with an RTT passing through to Big Bend. BYO restroom accommodations.

It was perfect for what we needed: a place to crash and break up a long drive. We arrived late in the night (no check-in was convenient). The sky was spectacular, we even saw some shooting stars. Left early the next morning, and that was that!

We did not stay due to the condition of the neighborhood. The lot was as described. The pictures did not show the condition of the neighboring properties.
Also due to the heat we felt it best to find a camping spot with electric so we could have air conditioning.

Just described, a great and cheap option for a night's rest on a long stretch of I-10. Despite the remote location, felt completely safe and got a nice rest.

Very quiet and peaceful spot to sleep over during a long road trip. Exactly what we were looking for: somewhere safe and quite and not right on the interstate.

Sheffield Primitive Camping was the most perfect spot for traveling back home from the Big Bend parks. It was quiet, safe and has water! Located on the edge of a sleepy town with a great view of plateaus. Would stay here again.
