We booked to stay the night at El Cosmico for New Year's Eve, but we were unable to make it to Marfa that night. Two weeks later, I decided to ask if we could get a credit to come back and stay another time. They quickly and happily credited our stay. What a great place! Looking forward to returning to West Texas soon, so we can enjoy our stay.

Loved the nearby showers, communal kitchen, and complimentary coffee in the morning! If you're looking for primitive camping, this isn't the spot for you. The staff was really kind and the campground wasn't too noisy. Great for kids and weird young adults alike.

Self-camped in our Sprinter van in El Cosmico’s parking lot for New Years 2021. Simple facilities and relaxed atmosphere. Will have to come back during warmer months!

Spent NYE here with some friends and had a great time. They had a live band and bar. Would totally recommend this for someone looking for a chill NYE.

Loved camping at the El Cosmico over New Years. It is first come first serve for van camping, and ended up being perfect. We scored a spot at the very end of the parking area which was quite as well as being close to the bathrooms. The amenities such as a hot shower and coffee every morning was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely be back, and hoping to stay in a trailer next time!

Texas ShowerSunrise did not disappointPrivate and quite spot for van camping
