Getting Here and Getting Around:

We are located on Highway 170 where the road bends to meet the Rio Grande which is 17 miles southwest of the junction of Highways 118/170 at Terlingua, Texas. The resort is tucked between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park.

To put it in perspective, we are approx. 200 miles to the closest Walmart in Fort Stockton, and 95 miles to the closest McDonalds or stoplight in Alpine! We are here because we love remoteness. No traffic, no big-city lights, creates an environment of peace and unsurpassed stargazing!

While a vehicle is not required at the resort with housing close to the facilities, a vehicle is useful for major shopping or outing trips to Presidio, located 55 miles southwest of the resort, or Alpine, located 95 miles north of the resort.

For Fun

The Big Bend region is full of adventure and places to explore! Whether you want to hike the national and state park or hike right out your front door on the resort’s 27,000 acres! We also have river access so you can kayak, paddleboard, or just go swimming whenever you like! Like mountain biking? We have hundreds of miles of trails to explore. Like to play music? The eclectic town down the road of “Terlingua” has some restaurants and bars that feature open mic nights for local musicians!

There are more restaurants and shopping opportunities as close as 12 miles away. A full-day trip could take in the Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, Fort Davis, and its historical park and town; the McDonald Observatory; art, shopping, and the Sul Ross State University in Alpine; the Marfa Lights and the town of Marfa; and much more!
