Sky Ranch is the result of a love for the desert and for 1980s post-apocalyptic movies. A place to step out of our busy lives and be still, gain a new perspective, and imagine a different way to live. Once the floor of a large inland sea, Sky Ranch Terlingua is covered with fossilized mollusk shells. After the water receded, the area was visited by various animal and human migrations. Today, Sky Ranch is a refuge for two native Texans with deep roots that predate Texas itself.  "Be friendly, but firm. But most of all, be yourselves."  - Lester, Cherry 2000

Sky Ranch North Shelter
A great escape
What a great escape. We especially liked the cement brick fireplace and clear, starry skies. The wooden shelter, raised well off ground level, was sturdy and well-constructed. The host was friendly, helpful, and responsive. As warned, none of us had cell service at camp. Not at all the host’s fault, but if I were to return, it’d be in late fall or winter (peak Big Bend season). We went in early May and it was a bit too hot, reaching 105 during our Saturday hike at Santa Elena Canyon and around 100 at camp.

Sky Ranch North Shelter
This place was awesome! Private, secuded and everything I was looking for! The shelter is a great addition too! Definitely helped my tent from blowing all around with the high wind that happens in the desert. Would definitely stay again!

Magical Desert Ramada
This was my first full on desert camping and it was amazing. The most stars I have ever seen in my life. Very close to BBNP. Also close to DB Rustic Ranch BBQ. Quiet and amazing. Go camp there

Sky Ranch North Shelter
It was perfect! Quiet, remote, and beautiful. It was a good location for day trips into the park and Terlingua.

Sky Ranch South Shelter
Magical stay!
My dog Kai and I had the most magical stay in this little shelter. Not too far from both Big Bend National Park and state park. I would absolutely stay here again.
