Our campsite is located on the hill behind Terlingua Ghost Town, 1/2 mile from Restaurants, Coffee Shop and the world famous front porch. We have a composting toilet on the campground and an outdoor shower available. The view from your campsite is an unparalleled 360 degree panoramic view of the Big Bend region complete with a sunrise over the Chisos and a sunset in the Chihuahan desert of Mexico. The road to the campsite is unpaved and has some rough patches. Just take it slow.

The vibe at Living Rock Campsite #2
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We stayed at Living Rock Campsite for two nights while visiting Terlingua / Big Bend for the Thanksgiving holiday. The location is great - just up the road from the coffee shop in the center of the Ghost Town - which makes it very easy to get supplies and to reach the Terlingua entrance to the park itself. Despite being so close to the town, the campsite is very quiet with an amazing view of the surrounding area.
Unfortunately, our host had some technological problems and ended up double-booking campsites during our stay. When we arrived and couldn't find a vacant site, it was difficult to get in touch with him to figure out what was going on. We eventually worked it out and really enjoyed the spot we ended up with, but I would suggest that future campers get in touch with Marc well ahead of arrival to nail down the details. I will say that he was really apologetic and it seems like he's taking steps to fix the problem, so it might not be an issue going forward.
Overall, I think this campsite has a lot of potential and I would definitely recommend checking it out if all of the spots in the park are full.
