Once a sea, this now desert campground offers views of the mountains into Mexico and the surrounding Terlingua, Texas area. Use your imagination and have fun at our tropical themed campground. There are plenty of cool rocks and an arroyo to explore on this 42 acres. Fossil And shell hunt, hike, bike, enjoy fabulous sunsets and the best stargazing possible. Keep a look out for awesome desert plants and wildlife. Feel free to bring a painted rock with your name, date, and where you are from to leave at your campsite. This campground is private and remote but conveniently located within 10 minutes of a store that is well stocked with Wi-Fi, ice, beer, propane and other necessities. This is an off grid campground. If you are looking to unplug, this place is for you. Please remember to bring whatever you need for a complete Boondocking experience, such as water, fuel, shade etc.

Please stay on discernible roads, to help preserve this property and pack out ALL trash, toilet paper, wet wipes, human waste, and pet waste.

Please do not leave toilet paper or wet wipes in the desert as they do not decay. 

Please do not remove anything including rocks, shells, fossils, etc. from the property so that others can enjoy them.

Sites 1 & 2 are suitable for tent camping and very small trailers such as pop ups. Sites 3 - 7 are suitable for tent camping and travel trailers up to 26'. Sites 1 & 2 have fire rings with cooking grates on them. Sites 3 - 7 have a central fire pit that does not have a cooking grate on it and is a community resource.

Please do be prepared for some leveling if you are utilizing a trailer.

Generators may be used but please be conscious and respectful of your neighbors that want to enjoy the peace and solitude of this vast open desert space. Limit generator use as much as possible. Solar charging works really well during the daytime to top off battery voltage. Please keep campground lighting to a minimum so that others may enjoy the dark sky for star gazing.

Dusty Paddle was amazing!! Allan communicated well and gave detailed directions to the site. Site includes fire ring with very nice moveable grill. Beautiful desert site with mountains in the background. Lovely washout area near the site with large rock overhang and lots of beautiful cactus. 3 cars drove by the entire time we were there (4 nights), very remote. Site #1 was very close to our site, but it was unoccupied when we were there. It took 10 minutes on dirt roads to get to highway and 30 minutes total to get to Study Butte entrance of BBNP.

Awesome night skies with no light pollution near byIt's the desert - bring water! Beautiful sunsets!
