I could not agree with you more Susan. I'm glad I was able to share my little piece of paradise with you. Come back any time.

Easy to get to. Dirt road, totally fine for a Prius. Definitely no service - I could get texts out with a booster but nothing else.

Quiet, beautiful dark sky. Thanks Chris!

Camping on Chris’s land was absolutely perfect. It is primitive so obviously don’t expect any hookups, water, or cell service (which was a major plus for us) We have a 23ft class c and was towing a small truck and made it to the site just fine. It is a bumpy road though. The container on site worked out great for shade and the already made fire ring was a plus! The best part was the night sky!!!!! Absolutely perfect for stargazing!!!!! 🌌 There are two different entrances that we noticed. We preferred the second one as it was a little less hard on the ride. 10/10 recommend!!

Our set up on Chris’ land. We had enough room to pull in and then around. We faced the sunset and it was incredible!

Camping here was great! It was away from everything with plenty of land to explore. The stars were super clear and the sunsets were amazing.
My husband liked "off-roading" down the bumpy dirt road to get there. It was pretty equidistant from Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park and felt like a nice get-away from the city and all the lights.

This was our campsite from up the hill a bit.There are some really cool fossils and rocks up the hill if you go exploring!The stars were amazing!Big Bend Camp Terlingua

It was a clean quiet place far enough away to feel alone. Flat location which goes forgotten sometimes. Would have returned for another night but it wasn't available. Great option when visiting Big Bend.
