*July-September are rainy months. Let roads dry before driving if it rains. 

Settle in for a magical night in your own rustic ramada with an 8' picnic table, fire pit, and plenty of room to spread out. The nearest site to you is 250 feet away. The Desert Ramada is within easy reach, but feels wonderfully isolated. Enjoy beautiful panoramic views of Nine Points Mesa, Camel Humps, Black Hill, Packsaddle Mountain, and Hen Egg Mountain. The only desert sounds you'll hear are crickets, the soft cooing of quail and other birds, and the distant call of coyotes. Less than 2 miles from HWY 118 with easy access by car, and only 24 minutes from the entrance to Big Bend National Park.

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

The location is great and easy to get to BBNP. The sky is amazing at night, and the wind shows up too lol.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your trip, Raymond! I really wish we could control the weather but I've not figured out how to do it. The polar vortex passed though during you stay caught everyone off guard. Desert regions are often windy but the past week brought in extra wind and very low temperatures.

Loves this little gem in the desert! The host left us detailed directions on how to find this campsite prior to our arrival due to the lack of service in the area. The sites we're beautiful and it was a magical place to watch the sunset!

This place was everything I expected it to be. It was super remote and the 360 views of the mountainous desert were beautiful, especially at sunset. I would definitely recommend this location.

This was our second time staying here and we really enjoyed the property both times. It seems some improvements to lighting and seating were made over the last year which were great. This location is very close to town and big bend but you truly feel like you are alone in the beautiful desert. Will be staying here over and over again, cannot recommend enough !

One of the coolest places I've ever camped. Absolutely amazing views, an incredible sunset and sunrise and beautiful scenery. The lights on the Desert Ramada were a lovely touch. We stayed in Big Bend the next night and enjoyed our experience staying at the Desert Ramada more than staying in the park.
