The Tierra del Sol Basecamp is an open desert camping area located within Terlingua Ranch, 3 miles off of Hwy 118, 19 miles north of Study Butte and 22 miles to the entrance to Big Bend National Park. This region of far west Texas is well known for its remote ruggedness and beauty rapidly becoming the go-to place for those wanting to get away from it all, without having to spend a fortune to do it. It’s one of the last frontiers of North America and One of the only two National Parks in Texas. The Basecamp will reside on the 40 acre property. In the center is an area of approximately 6 acres flat, with rising limestone ridge lines to the east and west, open skyline to south with a view of Bofecillos Mountains, an area characterized by volcanic deposits of lava and ash-flow tuff and sedimentary deposits of conglomerates and sandstones. The four mountain tops; Packsaddle, Hen Egg, Panther and Agua Fria Mountains provide an amazing view during the day and at night, breathtaking night time views of the Milky Way and the multitudes of stars to gaze upon unlike any other place in North America. The morning sunrise over the eastern mesa brings its own spectacular views. Surrounding the 40 acres are many things of archaeological wonder. A Rock Hounds dream of minerals, stones and fossilized prehistoric microorganisms, as well as, the potential of finding the fossils of large prehistoric aquatic mammals. Yes, you are free to take a small sample of the thousands of quartz and calcite stones found in huge abundance. As you come to then end of Mailbox Rd., you'll see a residence to your left. This is "The Field Lab", owned by the well know sustainable engineer John Wells. If you'd like to pay him a visit, please contact him in advance.

Kyle’s land is absolutely gorgeous. We definitely appreciated the signs to get to the site. Highly recommend to save the directions as cell service coming up to the road was very spotty. Our camp site was gorgeous. We stayed in site 3. I think ideally I don’t like to see other sites or the landowners living area when I camp. When you drive up you can see Kyles living space but once at site 3 all you see is the land and mountains all around. after speaking to Kyle he said the best site for wind and tent camping was site 6 so we’d probably do the site if we came back as it was very winding during our trip. The toilet accommodations were adequate and we had a blast looking at all the crystals and stones literally everywhere at site 3. I would definitely return!

We loved tent camping here. It was our second time and plan on coming back. Beautiful views and we stayed at site 6. Very secluded and beautiful sunsets and sunrise

Desert camping
Stayed while visiting big bend Park. Actually spent more time walking around Kyle's land than I did at the park. Way less people lol. And really liked the desert camping. Did need a pick-nick table for my preference, but still was exactly what I was looking for.

West Texas camping!
Me and my son camped at site #1 for two night while we visited Big Ben. The site was really nice with a beautiful view of the mountains to the east. We also had a view of the sunsets in the evening. Kyle (the owner) dropped by to welcome us and tell us about the land and to answer any questions we had. He is very friendly and keeps his ranch and sites in great shape. Thank you, Kyle!
