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!

The Big Bend
Tanya was a great host. Camping area was perfect for us. It was clean and had everything we needed (Restroom, shower, picnic table, fire ring, 5 gals of water at campsite and Starlink WiFi!). Will be back!

our family went tent camping over the weekend and had a blast! the hosts were very responsive and accommodating, the bathrooms were so clean, the sites were spread out, and the picnic table/water jug were great touches. we appreciated the proximity to BBNP as well (about 30 min from maverick junction entrance). we loved that this campground was more private and secluded than others in the area. we weren’t able to see any stars this time due to the high cloud cover this weekend, but on a clear night, the stargazing here would be amazing. we’d love to come back in the future!

The Big Bend
Jeep with Overland Trailer Site 8
Site 8 aka The Big Bend was great, easy to pull into with our Jeep and Overland Trailer. Having the picnic tables and 5 gallons of water at our campsite was also convenient and thoughtful. The common area with yard games was fun for our 3 boys in the evening. The ports potties were AMAZING, I’ve never seen a cleaner and better smelling ports potty in my life, even my wife was impressed with the quality of the toilet paper which was another nice amenity. The showers were amazing and the hot water was awesome to have and easy to use. The Starlink on-site was another added benefit. Never used Starlink before and was very impressed, definitely a nice feature to stay in touch with family and friends and plan out the next days Adventures! We missed meeting Tanya, but rolled into camp at 12:30am and we’re gone pretty much all day hiking and exploring and getting back just in time to enjoy the beautiful sunsets and eat some dinner. The Hippie Crippler Ranch was spectacular and with only one family staying at the ranch while we were there it was like our own private oasis! We will definitely be back and look forward to returning to our now favorite place and staying at The Hippie Crippler Ranch!

Absolutely beautiful location with quick drive to Big Bend National Park. Great fun area for outdoor games, exceptional Wi-Fi where cellular service is extremely spotty, and even a shower and drinking water provided! Not to mention, port a potties that seem brand new! Will definitely be back!
