This is truly an off-the-grid experience. Located in the Terlingua desert, 5 miles off the highway, this property has no electricity, no water, no wifi, no cell service, and no light pollution. It's a wide open desert landscape with mountain views on the horizon. If getting away from it all is your goal, you found the right place.

This place was beautiful and awesomely remote. There was so much attention to detail in and around the site with the decorations. There were a couple pieces of firewood stocked on the site for cooking which was an awesome surprise. I would camp here again in a heartbeat.
