Rio Bravo Ranch

8 sites · RVs, Tents1000 acres · Presidio, TX
Rio Bravo Ranch is a family owned ranch that borders the Rio Grande and Casa Piedra Road.  We have cultured a love for camping and the outdoors on this ranch as children and young adults.  One day we were sitting on "the backside," enjoying the amazing vistas, solitude and a campfire when the idea came to us that we should share this amazing place with others seeking this type of experience.  We tried to think about what makes camping enjoyable to us - no immediately adjacent campers, a nice fire ring/shade structure, a nice, large tent site and vistas with unobstructed views.  We have incorporated this into our campground design which, when completely finished, will encompass several hundred acres of Chihuahuan desert vistas.  We are also fortunate enough to have a large riparian area on the property.  It is in this area, amongst the 40ft tall cottonwood and willows, we often find Gambel's Quail, Scaled Quail, Javelina and numerous bird species including the occasional turkey.  We would love nothing more than to share this wonderful place, where we grew up, with souls seeking solitude, adventure and inspiration.  Our eastern entrance is just a few miles outside the Big Bend Ranch State Park boundary, conveniently located on Casa Piedra road about 1.6 miles north of FM 170.

Cieloscuro

6 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents40 acres · Terlingua, TX
IF YOU WILL BE STAYING 3 NIGHTS OR LONGER, ASK ME FOR A DISCOUNT CODE!! We offer a uniquely secluded setting with stunning views of the Chisos Mountains. Located just 7 miles from the entrance to Big Bend National Park, and 10 miles from the visitors' center at Big Bend Ranch State Park, it is a perfect base from which to explore all the hiking, boating, and scenic beauty that West Texas is known for. The arts, history, and entertainment of Terlingua Ghost Town are less than 2 miles away. Like most ruins in the Ghost Town, my stone house was built in the early 1900s to house a miner’s family from the nearby Rainbow Mine. I bought the property in 1986 and began restoring and rebuilding. In 2019 I retired here from NYC and began exploring possibilities for sustainable tourism. West Texas is one of the best places in the United States to view the Milky Way (both Big Bend parks are certified as International Dark Sky parks). We use shielded LED lighting around buildings and pathways to cut down on light pollution and optimize stargazing opportunities for our astrotourists. And we are applying for dark sky certification from the Texan By Nature program. Bear in mind that this is the desert, in all its rugged glory. There are critters, rocks, plants with thorns, slippery slopes, sink holes, rusted artifacts and broken glass from decades long past. Bring sturdy shoes and a flashlight, and stay on the paths! We may eventually add a few more sites and expand our amenities, but our intention is always to provide remote, low-density accommodation for folks who are respectful of the land.

Laughing Coyote Canyons

1 site · RV, Tent10 acres · Study Butte, TX
Introducing a unique opportunity for remote Overlanding and camping enthusiasts seeking an unparalleled connection with nature, while maintaining convenient access to the vibrant town of Terlingua. Nestled between the sprawling state and national parks, this exceptional 10-acre desert property offers a secluded haven surrounded by picturesque mountains, captivating canyons, and an abundance of diverse plant and wildlife. For those with a passion for exploration, the property's close proximity to the east side of Solatario caldera "mountain range" presents an enticing invitation to discover and immerse oneself in the natural wonders of the region. Accessible via a roughly 1+ hour scenic 4x4 drive, the journey to Terlingua Ghost Town or the eastern route to 118 unfolds a breathtaking tapestry of awe-inspiring vistas and cliffs, enriching the travel experience with unforgettable moments at every turn. Whether you seek tranquil seclusion or thrilling adventure, this remote desert property perfectly balances the allure of off-the-grid camping with the convenience of being within reach of Terlingua's fascinating energy. Embrace the freedom to create your own overlanding escapades, bask in the beauty of the untamed wilderness, and savor the serenity of an exclusive desert retreat, all while maintaining a direct link to the captivating attractions of Terlingua and both Big Bend Parks. As a reminder, this is a remote site that is over an hour to the nearest town or highway via 4x4 high clearance roads. It is another hour to the nearest hospital or veterinary clinic. There is no cell service on the property. There is spotty cell service on near-by roads so dont rely on calling for help in an emergency. Back up communication or cell boosting is recommended. It is common to not see anyone out here for days. To promote a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, please come prepared and abide by the following rules and precautions: 1) Bring enough water - you will get dehydrated easily in the desert. 1 gallon per person/day is a good general rule for drinking, preparing food, etc. 2) Bring a secondary full can of gas (2.5 gallons or more) and have a full-size spare tire. 3) Bring a first aid kit that includes trauma bandages and tourniquet. 4) Follow a Leave No Trace principle. Please leave the campsite and surrounding area the same or even better than you found it. 5) Store food after preparation in animal proof container or vehicle. Do not keep in tent. Among other animals that are attracted to food, there is a population of black bears in the nearby Solitario. 6) Please remove all trash and waste upon departure. 7) Dogs are allowed on site (we love ours!) However, please be mindful of cleaning up after them. Be very cautious of the desert environment and wildlife. Besides the abundant thorns and stickers that pose harm, animals such as the Javelina consider a dog the same as a Coyote (enemy), and have been known to attack in packs when encountered. This could injure you and your dog. 8) Fires are welcome in the fire-ring but please bring your own firewood, keep the fire contained, and refrain from making fires in high wind conditions. We also require everyone to bring an extra gallon of water to completely douse fire and coals before leaving camp. Follow Brewster County fire bans during periods of high wind and fire concerns. 9) The property and immediate area has a rocky and uneven terrain that includes very large ravines and canyons, some with 50 foot sheer drops. The rocks and dirt around these areas can be very loose and unstable. Hiking around the property is at your own risk. Take precaution to avoid injury. 10) Remember that the surrounding areas are all private property so keep to the roads once outside of Laughing Coyote Canyon site. 11) Enjoy your time here. Being in a remote landscape promotes being one with nature. It can be humbling and exilirating at the same time. A grounding experience akin to how our ancestors felt with a need for self-reliance.
