Large private area...you can see other sites but we barely heard anything because they were so far away. No shade, so be prepared, but that was expected for the desert. It is 1-1.5 hours to all of the main spots in BBNP; half hour is just to the entrance and the park is large.
We didn't use the fire ring (burn ban), grill, or non-potable water, but they were nice to have. Very nice camp toilet shelter that is brand new!
Loved the private remoteness of this site!
Just as described
Exactly as described... a good little private piece of ground all to yourself. We could see some signs of other people way, far in the distance. The night was beautiful, cold and silent. There's a good little potty/shower area and a BBQ pit and picnic table. We camped in our car and had a good stay.
We camped here in our 27ft Airstream for a week and we hated to leave. You have the entire area all to yourself so it is quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed incredible sunsets and great star gazing. Mark and Michelle were very responsive to any questions we had about the area. Can't wait to go back!
Amazing spot 30 mins from big bend
REALLY cool spot, great communication from hosts, 30 mins from BB entrance, and awesome night sky with very few signs of civilization around. If you can camp without hookups, we recommend it!
• Very remote with 360 degree views of mesas etc around you. We had a full moon on the nights we were there so I can't fully attest to night sky but even with a bright moon we were still seeing a good amount of stars. And the sunsets were awesome!
• Great communication from hosts. We didn't get to meet them but anything we asked was answered pretty quickly.
• 30 min drive to Big Bend with one gas station on the way. I didn't go inside, but it did look like it might have a few basic groceries, although I would not rely on it.
• The 55 gallon water drum was great and gave us way more than enough water to supplement our motorhome full of water.
• A private bathroom? Nice! It is a camping style no-water, no-flush toilet but if we didn't have our motorhome we would have been very pleased to have that!
• Picnic table, grill, and trash barrel too!
• Being remote is a huge bonus but also comes with its own struggles of course...most of my cons are more related to that and the general area than anything.
• Very far from a real grocery store, with Alpine being the best nearby town for real groceries, gas, water fill, etc. But fortunately that is probably on your way out to the site so stop there first!
• Dust and very low humidity. There's a lot of dust and dirt, but that is just the area in general. Be ready!
• There are a lot of cactus around, both big and tiny. And that's very cool to see! We just spent a few minutes each day kicking away any little cactus that had blown into our main sitting area just to make sure the kids or dog didn't step into anything.
