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鈥檚 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.

Karen's place is beautiful!! We stayed at site 5 which has incredible sunrise and sunset views and is very easy to access. She was so friendly and accommodating! The outhouse, outdoor shower, and wifi were definitely icing on the cake. Mojo the dog is super sweet and we enjoyed his company. Loved being able to have a fire and sit outside to stargaze. Plenty of privacy from other campers unlike camping in the national park. Close proximity to town and to the park also.

Great Spot near Big Bend
Karen was a great host! She (and her dog Mojo) were super welcoming. Karen was really friendly and made sure that we were as comfortable as possible. She鈥檚 got anything you may have forgotten and provided us with ice packs, kindling to get our fires going, and had firewood to purchase in case we ran out (10 dollars is standard there). She provided us with a wagon to get our stuff from the car to the campsite. If you are looking for recommendations Karen has them all. We came to explore Big Bend National Park for the weekend and it was a perfect spot- just 15 minutes from the Maverick Junction entrance. Would definitely come back!
