*July-September are rainy months. Let roads dry before driving if it rains. 

Hang your lantern as you set up camp on the expansive desert floor with a fire pit and plenty of room to spread out. The Desert Expanse basic campsite is within easy reach, but feels wonderfully isolated. Enjoy beautiful panoramic views of Nine Points Mesa, Camel Humps, Black Hill, Packsaddle Mountain, and Hen Egg Mountain. The only desert sounds you'll hear are crickets, the soft cooing of quail and other birds, and the distant call of coyotes. Less than 2 miles from HWY 118 with easy access by car, and only 24 minutes from the entrance to Big Bend National Park.

Went camping here with my girlfriend and two of our friends. We had a great time! It is a great option to stay out outside of the National Park. STARS WERE AMAZING.

It is a piece of land to park on. So if you are self contained and like the quiet and isolation this place is for you. The owner is very helpful, because hipcamp would send me things that confused me. Just listen to the owner.

The hosts were wonderful! The site was clean. And so open! I’ve never seen such bright stars! The hosts were polite and helpful when I had questions! I would definitely like to go back when I’m better prepared for that heat!

This was a beautiful campsite off the beaten-track, so close to Big Bend, and I can't say enough about it! What a great feeling it was to be so remote, in the middle of nowhere, not a soul in sight, on this clean campsite. The fire pit was great, the sunset was perfect, and the STARS!! They were the most we have ever seen in our lives. We even got to see two coyotes chasing their morning meal and a large jack rabbit during our stay! We felt very safe and it was so refreshing to stay here.
