Great Location, Great Open Space
Great site, off the road but still very private. Close to Teralingua and BBNP. Highly recommended!!!

Tesla Camping at Jackass Flats!
I had a great time staying at this RV/Tent site! I was looking for a place nearby Big Bend National & Big Bend Ranch SP and found this spot on HipCamp which did not disappoint! Communication was great, since I had lots of questions before my trip. Once I got there I was met with friendly greeting with some of the nicest people! The site was pretty spacious too and I was testing out Tesla camping with the necessary NEMA 14-50 outlet. I watched some of most beautiful sunsets & sunrises during my stay there and also my pup made friends with the local horses & donkey's which were pretty social and friendly. Also if you need any supplies the local general store has a great variety of necessities. I would definitely come back and stay here again!

A unique setting with horses, Donkeys and friendly neighbors. The dog loved the freedom and new friends. Bathrooms were less than ideal. If you have your own solution, bring it.

Great little spot. Had a very well stocked general store. Dan who greeted me very welcoming. The only draw back is there is really no shade.

Jackass Flats Primitive Camp
Loved camping at Jackass Flats! Had a question before we drove down and Pam answered and was very nice. The site itself is very cool, there are some donkeys in the arena that you can go up and pet. The Little Burro store was nice, we picked up some cold drinks and got a recommendation for a place to grab lunch down in Study Butte (Chili Pepper Cafe). There is also a cool little art gallery out front near the store. Great spot near Big Bend and Alpine/Marfa!
