El Cosmico takes its inspiration from a long American history of hippies, nomads, bohemians and those living a life of self-determination. We believe in tuning in, dropping out and being here now.  Vehicles are not allowed onto the grounds, so if you are staying in your car or RV you will post up in our large parking lot with easy access to the grounds. Tent camping is dispersed, so you pick your space within the designated camping areas that are indicated on the property map provided at the front desk.  Front desk hours are from 7:30am-11:00pm daily. If you are arriving after 11pm please call ahead for late check-in instructions.  Mask are encouraged at this time. Please respect your fellow campers and staff members.

Lovely camping in the cold weather
We camped in our tent for two nights at El Cósmico. It was very cold weather (for Texas) BUT we were so happy to enjoy the heated reception building while they were open, as well as indoor showers. The showers and bathrooms near the camping spots outside were also nice, a luxury to have. For some meals, we made use of the hot plate and outdoor kitchen area. We really enjoyed El Cósmico and its comforts, in addition to the perfect location for exploring Marfa!

A glamping campervan experience
Campervan parking at El Cosmico was so lovely. Favorite parts: outdoor showers, access to the Front desk/fireside lounge area until 11 pm, the many areas to enjoy drinks in the evening or coffee in the morning, the free coffee in the morning, being walking distance to all the shops + restaurants, and the awesome gift shop. The parking area isn't anything exciting per say, but no complaints given all the amenities we had access to.

Nice folks but for the price I would expect a host onsite to deal with noisy campers who kept us up until midnight. We were in town for a bike race and this really sucked for us.

Give Patience a raise!
Patience is incredibly kind and...patient. I came in in a terrible mood after getting soggy pizza from para llevar (use that information as you wish), and she was so nice and lifted my mood. I had so much work to do and it was nice to sit inside on my computer and drink endless coconut water and beer from their selection. Camping was really pretty but warning there are lots of cars on the road. LOVED the open shower and proximity to Marfa Burrito. Ramona is so nice and the burrito was very good.

El Cosmico is very cool - what a beautiful place. The food truck on site made the best breakfast taco I have ever tasted, hands down.

Tent camping with some style.
I wished we stayed longer but we found a sweet spot to set-up camp and the out door kitchen was just what we needed to cook dinner(plus our stuff we had). The best part was the Dutch hot tubs, the weather was just right and the sky was clear. Plus they had it ready for us and with our name on it.

A perfect camping experience!
There is nowhere better to camp - hands down perfection. Hospitality, design, thoughtful touches throughout. Don’t doubt it for a second - just go & discover magic at every turn. I don’t want to leave!

Lots of noise from cars going by
Amazing little glamping resort! I love how clean and spacious the space is and all the details of all their amenities and bathrooms. They have hot running water for their outdoor showers! And there was so much room to pitch a tent anywhere on the grass. The only thing I didn't like is that they are so close to the main road you can hear all the traffic going by. I wish they would plant a wall of bushes along the property to help muffle all the noise from the cars passing by. Otherwise, such a great little place to stay a night or two.

Funky and Hip-- we loved it!
El Cosmico was so funky and beautiful. The grounds are well-kept, the showers warm and welcoming, and the water thankfully delicious and drinkable. I love that it's dog friendly-- my little pup loved it here, too! She made a lot of new friends.

Easy and cool
Angie and Patience were great. The place is great. Can see y’all couples and groups of friends having a nice time decking out in one of the RV’s they got on the land. Marfa is a trip. The coffee in the morning was accepted and right on. Not a glorious tent camping area, but it’s a quick setup from the parking lot and a good place to lay your head. Will be back.

Everything you need outside :)
This glamping site is amazing. Outdoor showers and bathrooms are my favorite. Shaded hammocks are key for siesta hour. Your dog can roam with you as long as their well behaved and stay with you which has been a huge plus for me. The green grass and water sprinklers are great to keep cool as well. Super friendly staff!!

Its absolutely fantastic! You can tell the grounds crew take an enormous amount of pride in the work they do to keep the place looking lush for all overnighters! The best part a mid-week band cooling the place off with funky beats! El Cosmico will forever be my go-to spot in Marfa!

Camping at El Cosmico was easy and the setup on the campgrounds was perfect. Easy access to bathrooms, sink, and shower. Several locations close to picnic tables but we chose a spot that was very shaded and had the closest access to the bathrooms and showers. I really liked all of their hammock groves as well. Paths were well light as were the restrooms in case you needed to use in the middle of the night. Overall, I highly recommend this campsite!

Black Stargazing Couple
El Cosmico was absolutely awesome. We arrived a day early for our camping site and the host graciously found us a Safari Tent for the evening. The grounds were clean, outdoor showers amazing and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Cloudy's food truck was very tasty. We will be returning to the wonderful relaxing town of Marfa to enjoy more stargazing and peacefulness. Thank you El Cosmico!

Great camping spot!
We had a rooftop tent and everything was honestly fine, had plenty of bathroom space/ access to facilities. I just wish there was more of a separation between the parking lot and the main road because it felt like we just pulled off the road where everyone is going 70 mph. Again staff was so nice and welcoming and helpful, would definitely stay here again I just feel like a lot of people have camper vans/ rooftop tents and it would be nice to feel more included in the space. But again, it was great and comfortable! Maybe just for future reference either a removal of the fence around the dispersed camping or an extension of the dispersed camping would be even better!

A Cosmico is the best… Great location, lovely facilities, really enjoyed the outdoor shower, and the kitchen — while having limited supplies has some basics you might need like hot plates plus a fridge and sink. It was quiet and safe and I was a happy camper 😃
