Quiet and peaceful. Far away from road and instructions to arrive were easy to follow, even at night.

This was such a beautiful area! We had a really comfortable and peaceful night! The directions were really good, and it was easy to get to. Jake sent some extra information and was really responsive. We’ll definitely stay there again.

Staying here was really awesome and exactly where I thought it was. However, I did think that the shelters were farther spread apart. That wasn't an issue nor would that detour Chris and me from staying there again! We loved it!

The sunrise view is incredible. Its about 20 mins from the Ghosttown and I love the shelter aspect.

My only suggestions would be to bring some more batteries for the lanterns as ours were out. and also trim the sheet metal down along the outskirts. That stuff was super sharp and I almost cut my arms resting on the ledge at one point...just a thought.

Will definitely stay here again. The shelter was great! :) Thank you for the awesome directions and great hospitality. West Texas is the best.

Once again, these are just suggestions

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for letting me know about the batteries. I'll have a friend take some more out there ASAP. I'll also take a look at the sheet metal. Great suggestions! We really hope you'll come back again for more of those West Texas sunrises!

I spent one night at the south shelter and had a wonderful time. Directions were easy to follow. Jake was very helpful. It was a very windy spring night, so having the structure was very nice. Its very spacious. The view is also very nice.
