Welcome to our secluded desert mountain escape! With only one campsite, nestled in a quiet valley, you'll be able to unwind and relax. You will be hosted by recognized Super Hosts. There is a wonderful view of mountains and valleys with diverse and ever-changing geography, wildlife such as deer, javelina, fox, birds, and the occasional bear or wild cat. To top it off, the 360 degree view of the unobstructed sky lends itself perfectly to stargazing at night! 

The camp site provides a level camp pad, privy (currently under construction - with portable camp toilet and hooks for solar shower bags), a picnic table, wood/charcoal BBQ grill, non-potable and trash disposal on site. There is also a campfire ring so you can toast marshmallows or just cozy up!

It is a scenic 45 minutes drive to Big Bend National Park - be sure and visit the Dinosaur exhibit, Santa Elena Canyon, the Boquillas Overlook, the Hot Springs, Chisos Basin! Also, the Rio Grande River has water rafting available, so there is definitely something for everyone! 

There are plenty of opportunities to get out and explore - you can hike many trails on our property or within 1 mile of the campsite.  If you have mountain bikes, ATVs/UTVs feel free to bring them and enjoy riding along miles of dirt road starting right from the campsite! We also offer customized local excursions on our 6-seater ATV, which you can reserve and add it on as an extra while making your booking.

We hope you'll enjoy the wonderful the beautiful sunrises, wildlife, and solitude as much as we do!

Loved this campsite! It’s very private (only one site) with a level tent pad and privacy shelter for changing/shower bags and has a camping toilet inside (bring your own loo bags). Very primitive, but you can use the hot showers at the lodge about 4 minutes away. It does get verrry dark on the road so make sure you’re there with daylight to navigate to the site. Mark and Michelle are fantastic communicators with great directions. Easy to get ahold of if need be. The drive to BBNP is about 35-40 minutes but worth it if you plan to explore more than just the park. We loved the experience here and highly recommend.

Fantastic site. Surrounded by
mountains you feel like you’re on your own 20 acre spread. All that we hoped for and more than expected. Doesn’t get any better.

Beautiful area! The hosts were extremely nice and accommodating. My car broke down at big bend and the host were ready to offer help and check my camp while I was getting it fixed. Definitely a great expression of west Texas hospitality. I can’t wait to come back again

Beautiful spot, isolated just enough to enjoy quiet and peace. Mark and Michelle were great hosts and provided an excellent site to ring in the New Year, with adequate supplies. Although when I first drove by the entrance road to the site I was concerned about my car being able to make it, my basic four-door sedan was able to get to the site just fine.

Mark and Michelle are wonderful hosts! Their property is secluded and quiet with amazing views. There is a level tent site, picnic table, fire ring, and enclosed privy (for use with solar shower and disposable waste bags). No shade so bring an awning. Hiked the host’s property and it was beautiful. Was able to shower at the Terlingua Resort Lodge (small fee) and had dinner at Bad Rabbit Cafe. This is a great winter getaway!

Mark & Michelle’s property was perfect for our trip to Big Bend. The site was situated among gorgeous mountains all around. Sunrise and sunset were amazing. They kept the site neat, easily accessible and amenities were exactly as described. Mark also went out of his way to communicate directions so that we would be at the correct spot. We will definitely book again for our next trip to Big Bend.

Great set up. Nice open campsite. We will be back. Loved the feeling of seclusion but still close to the road and civilization.

This place was awesome. It's soooo secluded, we were the only campers. It has beautiful views and close to Big Bend. It's a great place to get away. I can't wait to come back to visit!
