Colton was an absolutely amazing host. Extremely accommodating and helpful, quick to respond to my texts, came out to help us find the campsite, offered us a wagon to take our things to our campsite, showed us where the bathroom and shower were, and gave us the wifi password.
The site was easy to get to, close to all the nearby hotspots (Big Bend, Starlight theatre, Cottonwood general store, Alon gas station, Big Bend River Tours, etc.), and it was well maintained. Clean, well-stocked bathrooms, and clean shower.
I will definitely stay here again. We even made a friend with a neighborhood pup that roamed around looking for handouts!
We felt safe and never worried about leaving our belongings behind while we hiked in Big Bend. Loved it!!

Terlingua sunrise from the campsite. Incredible. Nice fire going in the fire pit!

The camp was centrally located. The camp sites were clean and level. The bathrooms and shower were clean and well maintained. It looked like they were making improvements to the property, so I look forward to coming back to see what they have done. Colton was super friendly when I arrived and sent me directions to the camp before my trip. Zero complaints and would absolutely camp there again.

Had no idea what to expect and Boathouse was perfect! Great location for our adventures. Felt safe, had bathroom and shower close and made some great memories.
Thank you. We will be back:)

It was generally alright. The GPS coordinates were very far off from the correct location so you'd be better off putting Terlingua Ghost Town in the navigation app and find it near Espresso u Poco mas (which I highly recommend) Also the bathrooms have no lights but other than those qualms it was a nice well kept location. Remember to ask for the bathroom and wifi codes before you don't have a signal

Colton was helpful, quick to respond, and text right away when asked a question. The bathrooms and shower were clean and very well maintained. I would definitely come back to stay here. The sites aren’t private but people were respectful and it was a great use of space and layout.

The site is in a fabulous location—you can’t find a better tent site in Terlingua than this! Terlingua is great and this site made it easy to explore the town. The bathrooms and shared community space are great amenities, but sites are close to the road and not terribly private.

My site was occupied when I arrived, but the hosts helped me via text find a different one. Neighbors in the site were friendly.
