Had the place to myself.
During my stay at Coyote Crossing, I was literally the only camper on the property, which was very nice. I had a wide open space and every site for my choosing. I would imagine during the busy season, you will be surrounded by more campers but the tent sites are spread out far enough that you will have your space. If you're going during the peak hot weather, you should consider bringing some sort of canopy because there is no other shade available and damn it gets hot in your tent.
My only concern was that I when I tried to drive out early in the morning to go to the national park, I got turned around a bit because it was pitch black and I couldn't see if I was driving through a camp site or the intended driveway. A few more solar lights and signs might help direct drivers going to and from the back of the site.
Nice quiet campsite.
Campsite was clean and quite. Great view of the surrounding mountains. Was also nice to have a dumpster in the main lot to dispose of trash so we didn’t have to carry it the rest of our trip. Would stay again.
Our host was great! This campsite is remote but got some service there. It was quite and views amazing! So glad we found this and not a park. Not to far is gas station, food that made it easy if we forgot something. Highly recommend and will be back. This was one of the greatest experiences we had.
We stayed 4 nights in my Rooftop tent and it was fantastic! We came on a jeep run with a big group of people in jeeps and tents who all camped. Plenty of space for everyone to park and be comfortable and far enough from other camp sites on the property to not bother others! The sunrises and sunsets were absolutely breathtaking! Its down the road from gas station, food, and attractions. Big Bend is not too far from the site. It is a dry camping spot so be prepared to bring your own food, water, supplies and gear. A nice outhouse is on site!
