Off-the-grid primitive campsite. As seen on Nat Geo, "Badlands Texas," which highlighted my new business, "Tin Valley Retro Rentals." Located near the National & State Park, along with the art and culture scene. You will love Tin Valley because of 90 private acres against the mountains, with the solitude, and the magnitude of stars & milky way directly overhead. Great for couples, solo adventurers, families, and fur babies.

Other things to note
Not to discourage you from booking but please be aware that this campsite is a self check-in site and there are certain guidelines to follow so that I can continue to keep the rates as low as they are. PLEASE clean the campsite before you leave. This means sweeping, throwing away trash, making bed, cleaning out fire pit, stacking outdoor chairs next to fire pit (or they will blow away), picking up any trash that may have blown into bushes nearby, and raking entire site. Close all windows (dirt & rain). Clean off picnic table and make sure no food stains are left on it. Your goal is to leave this campsite cleaner than when you arrived so that it is ready for the next guests to arrive. Please assist in keeping everyone's vacation experience the best it can be. And again, by helping out this will keep the rates down. Thank you so much!
Please leave your campsite as clean or cleaner than when you arrive.
Broom is provided to sweep before leaving, rake is provided to rake area, and trash can is provided to throw away your trash.
Please be thoughtful of the guest arriving after you leave. The way to keep the rental cost down is to help keep the sites clean.
Q: Are pets allowed?
A: They certainly are. Please note: you are responsible for your pet. Any damage to an RV or campsite, from your pet, will result in a $50 cleaning/repair charge. This applies to both material damage that requires repair and special cleaning to remove pet hair, urine, feces, vomit, or odor.
Please NO loud music from any radio source. We love that our guests can experience the silence of the desert during their stay. Now with that being said we love if you are a musician and would like to play/sing. Your music being played would make everyone's stay even more magical.
