Open range is a thing of the past, yet the ranches here intertwine, and the view goes on forever. Undulating hills of desert shrubs, cactus and rock – like an ocean with its waves. 

Just over 30 miles from Alpine and within an hour from the Big Bend National Park entrance.   At a higher elevation than Terlingua, temps are at least 10 degrees cooler here.  Easy access to Alpine, Marathon, Marfa, Fort Davis and Terlingua. Great location for Viva Big Bend or touring the area.

We have two campsites available. Site 1 with shaded stalls and water for horses (also available for tent camping) and Site 2 with primative tent camping (or car camping).  Campsites are far enough apart to allow privacy.  

High desert camping, dark skies, views of Calamity Creek, Elephant Mountain, Santiago Mountains, Santiago Peak, Kokernot Mesa. 160 acres. No wifi currently or amenities other than pure peace, quiet and beautiful sunsets.

Immerse yourself in the beauty and peacefulness of our high desert.  360 views!

Campfire ability dependent on weather/wind.  High clearance not always needed but recommended.

Improvements ongoing.    Pack it in, pack it out.  Please dispose of all human waste.  Leave no trace!

Gates and sites are difficult to find after dark - notify host if arriving after sunset.  Specific/detailed directions will be sent upon booking.  

Owner lives nearby, out of sight.  Yes - you may hear a donkey!
