10 acres of dirt just north of Terlingua, Tx. 20 miles from the entrance of Big Bend National Park. 60 miles south of Alpine, Tx, and 80 miles from Marfa, Tx.

This is the get away from the get away! Literally the middle of the Chihuahuan Desert which covers over 140,000 square miles of Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. The property offers solitude, mountain views, and a sky lit up with countless stars.

We are 100% off the grid. There are NO hookups. We will be developing the property into a "HipCamp" with primative camp sites, teepees, a small earth-bag/adobe cabin and a communal kitchen and bathroom facilities totally run off solar and water catchment. But for now the land is undeveloped and prestine, surrounded by mountains.

3 miles up the asphalt road is Terlingua Ranch Lodge, where there are shower and laundry facilities, wifi, a cafe, dump station, water and a pool ($5 per guest per day payable to the Lodge).

Our property is part of the World Wide Dark Skies program. We ask that you kindly turn off all outside lights in the evening.

The Desert is a rough place. Pets are welcome, however we do ask that you keep them confined or on a leash, we would hate for them to become prey to the native wildlife. Same with children. Children should be watched closely as there are lots of cactus and some snakes and furry spiders.

House Rules

Pack out all trash
Pets on leash and NEVER left alone
Children supervised (there are cactus, snakes, spiders, and other scary wildlife)
Fire in fire ring only, no fire during fire ban days.
No outisde lights on after sundown (use of flashlights and lanterns is fine)
Generators off after 10pm
Be respectiful of the plants, do not drive, park or walk on them.

Access Road Conditions

Once exiting state highway 118, you will travel 13 miles of asphalt paved county maintained road. Then less than 1/2 mile of gravel road. It will be a little a bumpy but it is a maintained roadway. No sharp turns or extreme dips. Any rig should be able to make it without issue, just travel slow and watch for wildlife or misplaced rocks.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Anywhere on the 10 acres is fine. Just don't drive over or park on top of any plants.
