Welcome to The Hippie Crippler Ranch! We offer off-grid hot showers, porta-potties, WiFi, games, and more! These amenities are offered to you for your convenience but don’t forget the simple pleasures of sitting outdoors and listening to Mother Nature around you. We want you to connect with nature! A simpler lifestyle that cuts out the everyday comforts of city life for a more primitive experience. We are only a 30-minute drive to the west entrance of Big Bend National Park. Our campground is 5.5 acres and is located in the North Corazones area of Terlingua Ranch! Our property is loaded with native desert flora, including creosote, a few scattered mesquite trees, and a lone ocotillo. We are nestled in an area with picture-perfect views of Nine Point Mesa, Jack Eden Mesa, the Corazones, and Turtle Mountain, and have one of the best spots for stargazing at night. We’re just 20 minutes from Terlingua Ranch Lodge and Pool and Bad Rabbit Cafe. Enjoy the picturesque Big Bend of Texas at The Hippie Crippler Ranch by pitching your tent or parking your recreational vehicle. With a gated entrance, our campground is completely fenced. Each site comes with a picnic table, trash bin, fire ring, and a 5-gallon potable water dispenser. Living in the desert has brought a lot of peace into our lives. Upon arriving we weren’t sure what to think other than it was absolutely beautiful. As time went by, we found a strong connection to the land, the quietness, and the sound of nature all around. We are overcome with tranquility and a repeated sigh of relief every time we take a drive in any direction. It didn’t take long for us to want to share these experiences with whomever we could connect with. We may be half an hour away from the local towns and parks, but you get to camp in pure nature. No loud cars zooming by, and The Ranch is not an overpopulated campground. Imagine hiking all day, especially if you’re visiting during a busy season, and all you want to do is get back to the peace and quiet of your camp. Well, we provide just that! Whether this is your first, second, or third visit to the Big Bend area we hope you consider staying at The Hippie Crippler Ranch. The basic creature comforts we provide coupled with the tranquility of a primitive lifestyle lead to a perfect getaway for any outdoor enthusiast or lover of nature. We know that the Big Bend area brings in thousands of people seeking adventure and exploration. Our passion is to explore every inch and corner of this world and connect with others, both alike and completely opposite of us. We welcome everyone to our campground and hope that you can take something back with you after your stay with us. Collecting memories not things is something we live by. If this is your first visit to Big Bend, then we want to say thank you for choosing us for your accommodations. If this isn’t your first rodeo, we would also like to express our gratitude to you for giving us the opportunity to host you on your return. We hope that you have the best time camping, hiking and just enjoying the great outdoors. The desert is a beautiful part of the world and should be explored!

Starry sky + desert beauty
Very considerate host. The camp was unique and made for a grand desert + safe environment. She provides firewood and it burns great.

Amazing Trip
We had a amazing time! The site was so secluded and peaceful. It was primitive but still had a few amenities. Views were awesome. Tanya our host was amazing and even gave us some help on finding ATV place to ride. WE WILL DEFENITLY BE BACK! Only thing to be prepared for is no cell or wifi. There is wifi at showers but would recommend adding a extender. We are not those tied to our phones but we also have children and family who couldn't get a hold of us.

Mesquite Grove
This place was very peaceful and serene. From the moment I pulled in and began to set up the tent, I knew it was going to be a special experience. I was blessed with an amazing sunset the first night. I stayed at the Mesquite Grove campsite for 2 nights while exploring Big Bend. It was a nice basecamp with good access to both the west and north entrances to the national park. The Hippie Crippler is about as remote as you can get while still offering basic amenities of drinking water, a nice bathroom, trash can, and a very unique and well-kept outdoor shower. I’ll definitely stay here again if I’m ever in the area looking for a campsite!

Peaceful place to rest your head
We loved staying at this campsite. First night we had the place basically to ourselves but it still felt safe and protected. Showers were hot and clean and so were the toilets. No smells at all! Tanya was also super helpful and quick to respond. Will definitely be staying again!
