This campground is awesome! The camp spots are huge, well spaced out, and very well maintained. The sunrise view in the morning is insanely gorgeous. The area is extremely dark at night but it makes for great star viewing. I would highly suggest this campground to anyone wanting to camp in the Terlingua area.

Great spot in Terlingua! Beautiful views to wake up to. We stayed here one night before heading into Big Bend, and it’s convenient with a gas station and country store just down the road.

Easy to find, quick trip over to Big Bend for some hiking. Lots of land to explore around the campsite as well.

The campground was great! Peacefu, quiet and even though it seemed pretty full with lots of the spots occupied we had plenty of privacy and felt worlds away

A five-minute drive from Terlingua and in close proximity to Big Bend Ranch State Park, this campsite is in a prime location to access the must-see spots of the Big Bend area. As others have described, the campsites are beautifully maintained and marked. When we arrived at the site, there were already three or four other groups with tents set up. We found a free spot to set up our own tent easily, and had a good amount of space between our campsite and other campsites. There is no bathroom/shower here, but campers do have access to a $5 shower at a local RV park. Be sure to bring your own drinking water, as water is a scarcity in the desert. There are established fire rings at each campsite - bring your own firewood or pay $15 for a delivered bundle. Though we never had the chance to meet Evin, she was easy to contact over phone and quick to answer our questions. This clean, spacious property was perfect for exploring the Big Bend area, and we are looking forward to returning! PS - While you're here, be sure to take a sunset drive down River Road 170 for some of the best views in Texas!

An overall good experience, the view was nice and there was plenty of space! It seemed a bit overpriced considering the area and the fact that there aren't amenities. But we had a great time there!

Had a great two nights here! Beautiful area, marked sites, and an easy drive into town. The first night there were a few others there camping but it still felt private. Will definitely be back!
