Welcome to The Oasis Group Campsite, situated in the desert overlooking the incredible Terlingua Creek! This secluded spot is perfect for a larger group getaway right near Big Bend National/State Park. In fact, the entrance is a mere 3 miles from your campsite!

Come pitch your tent or park your camper amid the peaceful desert hillside with views of plateaus that lead to the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park. There is an incredible art rock fire pit on site for you toast marshmallows or cozy up near, and you can enjoy a bite to eat at the picnic tables provided at this group site. The two dedicated picnic tables are placed beneath shade sails. 

The group site can easily accommodate 8-14 campers, with 8 tent sites available. There is a nice and new desert tan flushing Porta Potty on site, dedicated to the group site, as well as showers for our guests to use. They come in handy after a long day hiking!

We hope you'll enjoy the beautiful open sky sunsets, sunrises, and stargazing as much as we do!

We are located just 3 miles from the entrance to Big Bend National Park! There are plenty of opportunities to get out and explore - you can hike, bike, canoe & kayak, off road, swim, go horse back riding, visit hot springs, as well as visit restaurants, galleries, and listen to great music in Terlingua. There is something for everyone to feel free to bring the whole family!

Other Things to Note:

- You can stay connected if you'd like to, as cell reception and wifi are both available on our property. Feel free to unplug during your stay though!

- You may see other campers at our regular (not 'group') campsites, but this group site is definitely more private for you and your friends/family.

- Potable water is provided on site!

Please feel free to reach out with any questions and we look forward to your stay!

El Groupo was a fabulous campsite! We enjoyed the views, and it was so close to the national park! We were sad we couldn’t make a camp fire due to a county-wide burn ban, but hopefully, we’ll be back to visit when it’s safe to make a fire! Our stay was a memorable one—would definitely recommend!

When we eventually found it, set up was good, but we never knew if we were in the right spot. Others likely occupied our spot. Poorly signed, had to ask other folks staying there for instructions. Owner/attendant nowhere to be found. Very expensive for a lack of clear directions. I would like to discuss with the owner. From all interactions with others at camp “owner was great guy”, just never met them, had any clear directions on our location, etc. Had three crying kids and a frustrated wife from our experience.

Jason and Ron were so welcoming! I think this is probably the best camping spot outside of Big Bend. Great sites, sunshades and fire pits at each one. Showers are hot and porta Johns are clean. We had a little issue with the site we booked and they were very professional in how they handled the issue.

Big thumbs up for El Groupo. Great scenery in multiple directions. Gigantic space: Lots of privacy not just from other camping parties but also within the site itself--8 designated tent circles are widely spread. Tent stakes will even penetrate the ground, which is miraculous in Terlingua area. Big stone campfire wall is well-designed. Two picnic tables and permanent shade canopy appreciated. Quick access to Study Butte civilization; short dirt road is well-graded. Plenty of room for cars. Clean/fancy porta potty (foot activated flush!). Didn't try showers but guests had no complaints on that front. Jason (online) and Ron (on site) were super friendly/helpful. Thanks for a great weekend!

My family absolutely loved the El Groupo site because it was private, with plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable, and very close to Big Bend National Park. We loved having the canopy that provided a bit of shade from the sun, the picnic tables, the fire ring, and the flushing toilet/outhouse. We also enjoyed being able to shower and wash dishes at Jason's check in area. Jason and his staff were incredibly friendly and eager to help with whatever we needed. Most of all, the view of the night sky was nothing short of magnificent. Seeing the Milky Way and the stars each night totally blew us away. We even saw a beautiful shooting star the first night. To top it off, the sunrise was stunning as well! I would recommend this site to my friends, and would stay there again.

The sunrise over the mountains at this site is stunning.
