Star Party is a high clearance, 4X4-only accessible site, capable of accommodating larger groups.  The road to the campsite is everchanging with rains and can go from fine to technical in the matter of a 2-hour period if the rain falls in just the right spot.  

The first half of the road to the site is composed of large loose rocks, 6"-12" in size that can easily puncture a low lying oil pain.  The last half is along a drainage and is occasionally washed out with big rains.  There is an 80-yard run of sand where 4X4 is all but mandatory.  

THIS CAMPSITE IS LOCATED ON A MILDLY IMPROVED RANCH ROAD AND THERE ARE BUSHES/CATCLAW/ALLTHORN/MESQUITE THAT CAN GROW INTO THE ROAD AND SCRATCH YOUR VEHICLE.  WE TRY TO KEEP THEM CUT BACK REASONABLY, BUT SCRATCHES ARE POSSIBLE ON THE ROUTE TO THIS SITE.  IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT VEHICLE SCRATCHES, DO NOT BOOK THIS SITE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER TRAILER THAN AN OVERLAND STYLE TRAILER, DO NOT BOOK THIS SITE, RATHER LOOK AT RB1 WHICH CAN ACCOMMODATE A TRAVEL TRAILER.

There is no cell service at this site proper, but you can usually get cell service if you climb to the top of the adjacent 30-ft high hill.  We get AT&T service there anyway.

The shade structure here is larger than those at RB1 and RB2; it is 16 feet wide X 12 feet deep.  The portapotty, shower, wood and water are all a 10 minute drive from this site, so plan accordingly. There are multiple sandy spots to secure your multiple tents.

If you are looking for the most isolated campsite currently available at Rio Bravo Ranch, this is it.  It will be you, the howl of the coyotes and the stars. We hope you'll book Star Party today!
