  • The Cosmic Campsite includes two chairs, a little table and your own little firepit.
  • Feel free to wander and explore the rest of the Big Bend Glamping property during your stay.
  • The Cosmic Campsite has a great view of the Corazones Peaks Mountain Range pictured here.
  • This is the view of 9 Point Mesa directly out of the Cosmic Campsite tent. Can't beat waking up to that view.
  • The tent can sleep two comfortably and includes a rainfly to keep you dry during the rare desert shower. You're welcome to bring your own tent too if you'd prefer that.
  • View of 9 Point Mesa from the Cosmic Campsite
  • Not many better spots to camp out than this
  • Your own secluded area to hang out and relax
  • This guy or gal lived a full life at our family’s ranch in Waller, TX before moving out west. Any cow skulls or skins that you see died of natural causes after living a relaxed life grazing on an open 300 acre pasture.
  • Sunrise over the ridge to the east. This is the community fire pit front and center of the property. You’re welcome to hang out here and make a fire if there is no burn ban during your visit.
  • The Heavenly Hammock is perfect for a siesta after a morning hike. It is located down the Terlingua Trail.
  • Rock tower circle surrounded by mosaic tiles
  • Desert sculpture
  • Sunset over Terlingua Ranch Road
  • There are horseshoes and washer boards set up for your enjoyment in the front portion of the property.  You’re welcome to strike up a game.
  • This is the Corazones Peak mountain range that sits just south of “Big Bend Glamping”
  • 9 Point Mesa getting ready for a desert storm
  • The Lajitas Library trailer is a community area with WiFi, power outlets for charging phones and a full library of books that you’re free to borrow during your trip.
  • We’ve got a pretty extensive selection of books for you to borrow during your stay. They are all located in the Lajitas Library trailer at the front left of the property which is an open community area.
  • A sea of tall grass makes up much of the middle portion of the property. I’ve cut paths through much of it that eventually makes its way out on the back side of the property. You can enter the Terlingua Trail and wander around in the maze.
  • We've got a community fire pit front and center on the property that you're welcome to use if there is not a burn ban in place at the time of your visit. You can see 9 Point Mesa in the background, which is a beautiful peak  north of the property.
  • Not a lot of neighbors around here. You take what you can get!
  • Jackrabbits are all over the place around here! Many of them like to find a nice shady spot to hang out on the property during the heat of the day. I can almost guarantee you'll see at least one during your stay.
  • Not a Ford ad, this is just a regular afternoon at “Big Bend Glamping.” the double rainbows here are situated between East and West Corazon Peak on each side, which I can promise you are much larger and more striking in person.
  • Shaded seating area in a cleared section of the Terlingua Trail beneath two mesquite trees
  • Can't find a better backdrop for a swim. This pool is located at the Terlingua Ranch Lodge 10 miles from the property. Guests of "Big Bend Glamping" can access the pool by paying a $5 fee at the front desk of the Lodge. Bathrooms, showers, washer/dryer and a great restaurant are also available here.
  • Getting some work done with my business partner at the Black Rabbit Cafe, which is only 10 miles from the property. The cafe is part of the Terlingua Ranch Lodge which also includes full bathrooms, showers and pool access ($5 at front desk) for all “Big Bend Glamping” guests. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 AM - 7 PM during the week and until 9 PM on weekends. I highly recommend visiting the Terlingua Ranch Lodge during your stay if you’re in need of some upgraded amenities.
  • New Years Day hike to the top of Emory Peak this year. Emory is the highest peak in Big Bend National Park and the second highest in Texas. It's a really fun and challenging hike out of the Chisos Basin Visitors Center with a nice little rock scramble at the end. The entrance to Big Bend NP is 25 miles from the property. It’s a beautiful, relaxing drive to get to the park.
  • The view from the top of Lost Mine Trail. This is one of the highest peaks in Big Bend NP, but is a much quicker and easier hike than Emory Peak. Another good one to check out. The entrance to Big Bend NP is 25 miles from the property. It’s a beautiful, relaxing drive to get to the park.
  • Santa Elena Canyon is one of the most strikingly beautiful places in the country, with 1,500 foot sheer walls going straight up from the Rio Grande. You can drive right up to the mouth of the canyon and take a short walk inside. The entrance to Big Bend National Park is a gorgeous 25 Mile drive from the property.
  • This is my sister and I at one of the incredible Rio Grande overlooks in Big Bend Ranch State Park. There is a beautiful highway drive that meanders through the mountains from Lajitas to Presidio following the Rio Grande. The entrance to the state park is 38 miles from the “Big Bend Glamping” property.
  • Sunset beers on the porch at the Starlight Theater in the heart of the Terlingua Ghost Town. Terlingua is a beautiful 25 mile drive from the property.
  • This shed is down the Terlingua Trail into the high grass in the middle portion of the property. It holds much of the tools, equipment, extra blankets and bedding, etc. There are a number of large plastic crates that have tape with contents inside. If you need something during your stay and Im not around, feel free to rummage around in the shed and see if you can find what you need.
  • We do have solar power and satellite internet set up in the Lajitas Library trailer in the front left of the property. This is a community area that all guests are welcome to and includes WiFi, power outlets and an extensive library.
  • Power outlets and iPhone charging cords are located on the countertop inside the Lajitas Library trailer in the front left of the property. This is a community area that all guests are welcomed to utilize.
  • Seating area within WiFi range just outside the Lajitas Library trailer front left of the property.
  • This large sign is the landmark to keep an eye out for at your turn off of Highway 118 from Alpine onto Terlingua Ranch Road. There are also a bunch of mailboxes right there and some storage units just past the sign to help keep an eye out for.
  • This is the last stretch of road you will drive on for just over a mile to arrive at the “Big Bend Glamping” property. It is the only stretch of road that is unpaved, but as you can see it is a flat, well-maintained road that is accessible by any vehicle.
  • Porta potty is at front left corner of the property. There are large jugs filled with water on the shelf next to the Porta potty for washing up, brushing teeth, etc. Full service showers can be taken 10 miles away at the Terlingua Ranch Lodge
