Red Feather is nearly 8 acres of undisturbed land located deep in the Davis Mountains in far west Texas. Situated in southwestern Jeff Davis County and 5 miles from the highway on primitive roads, it is accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicles. We have a nice view of the McDonald Observatory (only 7.5 miles as the crow flies) and we are 35 minutes from Alpine and Marfa. 

*Please know this is a primitive campsite, there are no restrooms or trash receptacles.  You must be prepared to take out what you bring in.  Unfortunately, past guests have left it unkempt which makes us have to vet out who we will host.  Red Feather is not a spot for everyone, only experienced campers who have a true appreciation and respect for nature.  And if you do find the area untidy, please let us know.  Lastly, this is not a place for large group gatherings or a place to party.

Although we went a little out of our way, the ratings were so good, we hoped it would be worth it. This was such a cool place and a special find. We love the adventure of dispersed camping, so the need for a 4x4 vehicle was an adventure. The whole area was beautiful and the drive up was really fun. Once we arrived, it was as good as we hoped. The views and location are amazing. It’s so worth it.

Beautiful campsite! The views are gorgeous! Loved having the deck too! The horseshoes and dump truck were an added bonus and were loved by my boys!

Maybe our new favorite camp spot in Texas. Beautiful views of the Davis Mountains in every direction—and having the wood deck to enjoy is a huge bonus. Although the site sits in a small enclave of spread out vacation homes (I think) you’re very secluded and the only thing you’ll hear are the local donkey whom are honestly pretty hilarious to listen to. America is a terrific host and was quick to answer all of my questions about the site—including making Red Feather available to book late the night before after our attempts to find a good camp site had fallen thru further south in Terlingua. Man am I glad those plans did fall thru so that we could find this incredible site.

Was a great stay a very Spartan style sight as i like and expected. Well maintained host did a great job with the set up and little extras that were left to help enjoy the stay. My girl and i had a great time and loved getting away and disconnecting from everything. Nice and secluded nestled in the mountains. The stars were amazing and the altitude helped with the temp. The trail as was said was definitely a challenge to get up but fun and the jeep took it like a champ. All in all great stay and would do it again!! From an avid nature and adventure lover, and Veteran i thank yall and say well done. Hopefully we did good in clean up for yall tried to make it like we were never there as requested.

America was very informative and helpful prior to and after our trip. I was glad we had 4 wheel to access the site which was a fun drive up. The views are amazing, and there is plenty of space & privacy with a wooden deck large enough for a family to stay out of the mud when it rains. The sunset despite some clouds was still magical at the top of the hill. There is a small silo type structure for bathrooms & showers (bring your own bags and water) that was a pleasant surprise. I can’t wait to come back and sleep under the stars on a not so cloudy night.
