Camel Hump campsite is conveniently located 2.5 miles down the Terlingua Ranch Road off rt. 118 behind Camel Hump Mountain. This is a “primitive” site with no septic facilities or water: pack it in, pack it out; please do not litter or bury any sort of waste. The campsite has a parking area on the left and a fire pit and tent spots on your right and is approximately 50 to 75 feed off Ruby Road and approx. 2.5 miles off rt. 118.The entrance to the site is on the narrow side so anything larger than a car or van won’t fit.DIRECTIONS: proceed South from Alpine on 118 approx. 60 miles (16 miles North of the gas station in Study Butte and approx. 5 miles South of the Little Burro convenience store, which is a good place to stock up), take a LEFT onto Terlingua Ranch Road: There is a bank of mailboxes there, a large sign that says Terlingua ranch lodge, a building, and a cell repeater tower that has two red lights on it if you are coming in at night (at this point you will see camel hump mountain on your right in the foreground, the campsite is behind the mountain).Drive 2.5 miles down Terlingua Ranch Rd. and take a RIGHT on 2.5 mile Road (dirt), it is clearly marked. In 0.7 miles take a RIGHT on Ruby Road (dirt). In a couple hundred feet when you see an airstream trailer and a few other trailers and cars on your left, the campsite is the next driveway on your LEFT (marked by two white solar lights if you are coming in at night). All roads are passable in any weather.If you continue 13.5 miles down Terlingua Ranch Road you will run into “the lodge” which has full shower, bathing, clothes washing and Internet facilities as well as the Bad Rabbit Cafe which opens at 7 daily, and a nice pool open in the summer.The Internet does not work at the campsite however your cell phone might: mine does (Verizon), but my friend’s however does not. Our land is partially covered with a lichen type of plant which I have only seen in high alpine conditions and wish to preserve: you are welcome to walk around the land but please no motorized vehicles outside of the campsite so area so as not to disturb this ground cover, thank you!TO THE GHOST TOWN: If you drive 2.5 miles back out to Route 118 and take a LEFT, it is 16 miles to Study Butte, if you take a RIGHT on route 67 there and go 5 miles you will arrive at the Terlingua ghost town.TO THE PARK: Continue straight on 118 (3) miles past Study Butte gas station and you will be at the entrance to Big Bend national Park.
