Camping on a huge ranch in west tx
Great place to stay if you're looking for a lively host in the middle of the desert! The closest towns are 30+mins away, but the drive to Carlsbad Caverns was worth it for the scenery and experience.
Great views, great location!
Perfect spot, highly recommend! This place has great views and is VERY conveniently located. There is 24/7 food and fuel basically on the highway and vast peaceful views at the campsite.
Al was super nice and got us settled in easily. You could spend a week hiking this place alone but we had a short stay since we were planning to hike the Guadalupe peak the following day. Notably, this place we conveniently located near the Guadalupe National Park park, with less than 1.5 hours of drive time.
Great place, would stay again!
It was great. Al, the owner of the property is gregarious and kind. The property was clean and conducive to both car and tent camping. It's far enough off of the highway (2 miles) that you forget its there but not far enough that it adds too much time to your trip.
Quick accommodating lesson learned
The stay was short and very quickly put together, Uthman worked with me and made it possible. The park is beautiful, I was there in late July, but it was not HOT. It was also not to cold in the evening being in the Desert. I had a front wheel drive Ford Flex, I would recommend a 4WD to anyone else. I should have been more carful with the directions and should have turned left instead of right. Mobile service is spotty, especially when in between hills, ya gotta hike up to the top to get service, but what a beautiful hike. It was the most expensive Birthday I have ever spent on myself.
If remote dispersed camping is what you are looking for, Apache Park is it! Dark skies and clean desert to marvel at. Big sky sunrises and sunsets. The hosts were prompt and accommodating and made sure we enjoyed our stay. Truly special people.
A beautiful spot in west tx
Apache Park is a lovely and safe place to stay, close off Interstate 10. The host, Uthman, is trustworthy and welcoming. He made a nice campfire for us to enjoy under the stars. It was easy to access with our small SUV pulling a trailer, even getting in after dark. We hope to stop there again on our next cross-country trip.
Great primitive desert camping.
This is a very basic site - just a little flat spot with a great desert view. No amenities, but far enough from the freeway for a quiet night. Exactly what we were seeking. The road in was rough and dusty, but fine for a pickup. Uthman is a friendly, energetic guy who made us feel welcome.
