Primitive camping and small trailer sites. Plenty of acreage to explore. The Goat Pens of Cigar Springs Ranch are easily accessed and located on South County Road. This central location provides an ideal basecamp close to the Terlingua Ghost Town and both Big Bend State and National Parks. The unique geology and topography of the Goat Pens made this a popular movie set and many westerns were filmed here in the 80's and 90's. Come out and enjoy seclusion, peace and quiet, awesome scenery with sunrises and sunsets to die for. All while still being able to easily take advantage of the area's other attractions.

The Goat Pens includes an outdoor events venue that hosts concerts, stargazing parties, festivals and weddings. The Goat Pens also has the only drive-in movie theater in the Big Bend area. Send a text or check The Goat Pens Facebook page (@goatpens) for information and dates of events.  Hipcampers always receive free admission to events. 

Thanks, Jeff.

Beautiful place! I will definitely be returning. The host stopped by to greet which was nice. While it was peak season, the place did not feel crowded and lots of camping options

Really chill place to camp out. Tons of open space so tent camping felt like cowboy camping. Jeff's a really nice dude and was super accommodating. Could not recommend enough.

There was so much to love about our experience with Jeff and our stay at Goat Pens! The custome service was exceptional, Jeff was extremely attentive, responsive, and helpful. The Goatpens land is absolutely gorgeous and camping there felt like both a thrilling adventure and a really relaxing getaway. Most gorgeous sunsets and views of the stars and the bathrooms and showers are great as well. Highly recommend!

We absolutely loved our time at Jeff’s place! It’s set back off of the main road a fair way so it feels more secluded, but you can still see other campers making you feel not completely alone. The property is beautiful, each drive up campsite has a fire pit included, and there are good toilets and showers too. I’ve already recommended this place to many of my friends, I’m sure we’ll be back soon.
