“Big Bend Glamping” is a unique, off-grid desert experience situated in a mountain valley just outside of Terlingua and Big Bend National Park. During your stay here, you will see more stars than you’ve ever seen in your life, live life amidst Mother Nature, slow down and appreciate beauty, and wash away the stresses of your everyday life. The Creosote Castle gives you shelter from the desert elements & great views of 9 Point Mesa out the front door.
