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.

Loved the remoteness of the site. We were able to see millions of stars each night which was really important to me. The shelter was build very solid and really helped to break the wind from deatroying our tent. I wished there would have been a marker on the main road with reflectors just because it was very difficuot to see the mailboxes driving to the site at night. As a woman camper ots inportant for me to feel safe camping. There was a truck that would drive by late at night and early in the morning and I didnt know if it was some neighbor or the host checking on us, but wish I would have known either way so I wasnt a little on edge, but it was overall a great experience so close to Big Bend.

We're so glad you loved the location! We're working with the county on a better street sign for the turnoff, so that should be resolved soon. And yeah, the remoteness makes it easy to forget there are other vacation rentals and even some locals who live down those dirt roads. Thanks for the feedback!

We were so surprised when we first arrived at the North Shelter on Sky Ranch. It is incredibly built and absolutely perfect at providing a safe cute shelter in the desert. It fit our tent perfectly and we added some solar lights to make it cozy and homey. The fire pit provided was perfect for cooking dinner and was very well constructed. Overall this was the perfect place to stay while in the Terlingua desert.
