62 acres of Texas ranch land. Cows wandering around nearby, and a drink tank on the property. Other wildlife includes quail, coyotes, javelinas, mule deer and more! We are setting aside funds for an ecological restoration project, and want the land to be useful in the meantime so we have put it on Hipcamp!

It's a short hike to the stunning views from the top of the hill, and ammonite fossils at the crest of the hill are just sticking right out of the ground! Can you find them?

David’s land is peaceful and quiet, an oasis off the freeway. We easily found it given his instructions and the views were lovely. Road was not bad for my vehicle, used 4x4 on the dirt as it was patchy in some places. Would recommend having some ground clearance if you are going to stay here. Lovely and would absolutely recommend and stay again!

What a journey! We absolutely loved the long road in so the anticipation could build. We arrived at night and there were a few rough patches in the road as we got closer. Luckily the land was mostly dry so we made it through but it could get questionable after a rain for lower clearance vehicles.

We couldn't exactly tell the boundaries of the land and how far in we were (didn't want to trespass!) so we ended up stopping just before the first gate and camping there. It was fantastic! And so was the sunrise the next morning! It was incredible to watch the desert come to life as the sun rose, especially after driving in during the dark.

Took the pups on a morning walk and explored all the things - all the native grasses and Zinnia Grandiflora, Desert Christmas Cactus, Cane Cholla, Crown of Thorns, Yucca, Windmill Grass, Creosote Bush, Prickly Pear, Dwarf Desert Peony and too many more to name! I highly recommend hiking around and bending over to see all the tiny things growing on the desert floor. It's fascinating.

We'll come back here next time we're passing through - for sure!

We found delicious food at Sarita's in town - enchiladas montadas. Highly recommended as well.

If it has rained, this site is not accessible with a low clearance 2WD vehicle. Be cautious of previous rainfall and weather in the area. If it has been dry for a while, it would likely be ok. We encountered some deep mud at the entrance of the property that we could not pass. We were in a 4WD high clearance vehicle, and the mud was too thick and deep for us. We ended up camping somewhere else. It is beautiful out there, but roads can be sketchy.

Peaceful & private remote camping! Land is about 30 mins off I-10, down a dirt road for a bit and then you arrive at David's large plot of land. There are numerous spots to camp so just take your pic! Not many amenities so come prepared for wilderness camping at it's finest!

We just needed a place for the night but wish we could’ve stayed a little longer! Beautiful views, sunset, and stars! Also got to visit with some cows ❤️

Overall it was a very good experience. The skies were as dark as advertised, and it was fairly easy to find a random piece of desert to park in. The tank itself is surrounded by the traces of cows, so did not make for a great spot. However Sunset was beautiful, sunrise even more so. As solitude was my goal, I'd say I got what I came for.

We pulled our NuCamp [email protected] 400 Boondock to David’s property. Use gps to get to Sierra Blanca, and then follow David’s directions. He has a beautiful property—we felt like we were the last people on earth!

Very isolated and quiet! Which is exactly what we wanted. Its a bit of a drive down dirt roads from sierra blanca but worth it if its seclusion and peace that youre after. It too us approximately 2 hours to drive to Guadalupe mountai s national park. The roads are well marked and easy to find. They are a little rough and look like they would be problamatic to drive in wet weather so make sure you have 4 wheel drive if its supposed to rain. There is absolutely no other human presence around for miles. When the sun goes down it is beyond dark, absolutely no light pollution and the stars are amazing!

The land was gorgeous with plenty of places to camp. A word of caution, BE CAREFUL if you are driving a 2wd vehicle. The road out there was rough on my Toyota Camry. If it had rained when I was out there the road would have been way too muddy, and I would have been stuck out there. That being said the rough journey there paid off with a wonderful night under the billions of stars, and the feeling of being totally isolated from the world.
