My friend and and I had a great time at Robert’s site. Beautiful views, especially for sunrise/sunset— the pictures given don’t do it justice. Robert was quick to respond with any questions and concerns we had. Additionally, there’s a cabinet at the site with extra camping essentials in case we forgot anything!!
Wonderful site with exhilarating views. Private and very close to nature with spectacular sunrises/sunsets along with the stars deep in the night till early morning. Terrain is rugged and raw but with a covered shelter in place it provides enough respite from the hot sun. Great location and very close to the Big Bend National and State Parks. Must have a high clearance vehicle to enter the site. The road is not paved and has some bumps along the way but it is worth the travel if you are seeking a site that offers all of the natural beauty of the area.
Fantastic remote campsite
This site was fantastic. We love to camp in more remote areas and this certainly meets that requirement. Took a great exploratory hike following the trail down into the canyon. Really couldn't have been more happy with this site. Will certainly try to book it again if I can get back to the Big Bend Area. Will be VERY disappointed if it is not available!
Location: prime site in close proximity to Terlingua, Lajitas, and BBRSP, minutes from the Barton Warnock center and trailhead for mountain biking. BBNP is a farther drive but still within easy driving range.
Site: easily located at the CASI entrance and only a mile or so off of highway 170. Entrance road was very accessible in truck. Very private and secluded.
Host: outstanding communication and responded quickly to questions. Site is as described.
Excellent place to stay. I booked the site on a quick stop from Midland Tx. I realized I wasnt going make it in time for permits at the state park. My knowledge was pretty limited and I missed out a lot of what there was to offer. What I did experience was great.
Awesome, well taken care of trails close the the campsite. Out house was probably the best I've ever used, strange describing that in such a way. Stay and you will see why. A number of great tent sites on the property spread apart nicely. The clamps for lanterns on the sunscreen was very much appreciated. It well thought out for a minimal campsite.
The drive up from the highway was a little rough. I was in an F150 with a locking rear differential and made it just fine, but felt like i was going to break traction on 2 pretty steep portions of the road. Wouldnt recommended a vehicle standard car or suv. I'm sure its possible but it could get bad if your not careful. I hate to deter anyone because it is an awsome place to camp but plan for a rough road.
We had an amazing time here at this remote site. It was the night of the total lunar eclipse and what a place to see it! One note about access: our two wheel drive low clearance rental car barely made it (we had to get out and scout a lot to make sure we'd clear).
What a cool place! The views and short trail were awesome and I’m glad we took the time to explore the site a bit. I have a toyota corolla and it handled the road totally okay. Definitely want to come back!
