Serenity in the desert
Awesome spot. We had sites 1 & 2 for two families and it was perfect. bumpy road going in but manageable. Love what Allan has done with the property from the nice fire rings and small trail spiraling through across the property.

Desert Campsite 30 min from BBNP
Dusty Paddle was amazing!! Allan communicated well and gave detailed directions to the site. Site includes fire ring with very nice moveable grill. Beautiful desert site with mountains in the background. Lovely washout area near the site with large rock overhang and lots of beautiful cactus. 3 cars drove by the entire time we were there (4 nights), very remote. Site #1 was very close to our site, but it was unoccupied when we were there. It took 10 minutes on dirt roads to get to highway and 30 minutes total to get to Study Butte entrance of BBNP.

This is an remote campsite. Just what I was searching for in Terlingua. The road to get there was bumpy but made it just fine with my 15 ft camper trailer and Tacoma. Beautiful sunsets and night sky. I was the only person at the camp so I was alone for at least a mile in every direction. Wonderful stay. I highly recommend it.
