Camping Under The Stars!
Good campground layout, but you’re also sharing with RVs. Campground was clean and free of rocks which was great! There weren’t any while we were there so it wasn’t a big deal. I’d recommend using Apple Maps to get there because Google took us to the other side of the road.

Camping in-town
A simple campsite, just what we needed in terms of a place to set up our tent somewhere in walking distance of Terlingua ghost town attractions.

Camping Under The Stars!
This cozy camping area is located inside Jommama's RV park, just minutes away from Terlingua. Sites are well-maintained and situated in the middle of the park. There are two group areas to use, and a bathroom on site. Elena was a super friendly host and made sure we had everything we need to have a comfortable stay. Dark sky area so star gazing was just incredible!

Not for tents
This location doesn't work for tent camping. There are no locations to get water, no usable bathrooms, ground is too rocky to use regular tent stakes. Also, look out for the abundant dog poop!

This is a great home base for exploring Terlingua. We had a nice spot, walking distance to the Starlight.
