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.

La Sierrita @ Rio Bravo Ranch
We had an amazing overnight stay on Laura’s land! Wide open spaces, spectacular views… private and peaceful. We were also grateful for Lauren’s directions and communication with us since it’s well off the beaten path!

Star Party @ Rio Bravo Ranch 4x4req
Camping under the stars
To see the stars in such a marvelous way was really wonderful and it’s so close to Big Bend STATE park which is also a hidden gem!
Just remember you need a high clearance vehicle and it’s near the State park not national park!

West Texas Trip Spring 2023
Rio Bravo Ranch simply put was "outstanding" for us. We loved the solutade of the Ranch and being under the night sky. For us is does not get much better than that anywhere. We love West Texas and Rio Bravo was just what we wanted!!
The host Lauren was so very nice and accommodating. She responded to every request we had and was a pleaser to speak to.
Again simply put, we would love to come back if Lauren will accept our request!!
Awesome, thanks Lauren.

La Sierrita @ Rio Bravo Ranch
La Sierrita es muy bonita
I camped here on a crazy windy night and was the most annoying guest with all of my questions, and Lauren was the most gracious and wonderful host! She was so helpful and responsive and offered me other sites that were available when the wind picked up so much. I opted to stay where I was at La Sierrita, because it was so incredibly beautiful - unbeatable views with no man-made structures in site - and I opted to just sleep in my hammock! This is a gorgeous property with everything you need and I will definitely be back. A truly special place.

Rio Bravo 2
The Rio Bravo 2 camp site was exactly as described. My wife and I enjoyed the views, the remoteness, and the distance to amenities such as Big Bend Ranch State Park and Presidio, TX. Responses to messaging were prompt enough to assist with any questions. Wonderful experience if you are trying to have more seclusion than the state park camping nearby provides.
