1.5 miles of dirt road.

My property is down 1.5 miles of maintained dirt road. It is narrow so 2 rv’s cannot pass one another. There is a small dry creek crossing that when it rains will hold some water; however the bottom is creek rock so you should have no problem.

Water Station & Dump Station

At this time I do not have running water or septic at the campsites. I do; however, have an area to fill water on property, and a dump station available for your use.

Maximum Length of Stay

No permanent living available.

Off-road Jeeps/ATV’s/Dirt Bikes

There are 100’s of miles of off-roads to explore so feel free to bring your Jeep/ATV/Dirt Bike.

Pet Friendly

We love fur babies! Just make sure your pup is not constant barker (echos thru the valley disturbing the peacefulness of silence) and your pup must definitely be friendly. I don’t mind pups off their leash but please keep in mind I also have quite a few cats on the property. The reason: to keep snakes away by eliminating their food source: rats/mice. And they are doing a great job!!! So just make sure your pup will not chase or harm the cats. I have 3 pups, 9 kitties, and a miniature burro on site.


Check-in is at 2pm. Check-out is at 11am.

Tin Valley is located near Big Bend National Park and sits on 90 private acres against the West Texas Mountains. Watch the sun set over Corazon Peak and await a spectacular view of the Milky Way overhead. All of our campsites have a character of their own! Each site has its own wonderful view of the mountains and are secluded in their own way to offer a bit of solitude. 

Tin Valley is great getaway for couples, solo adventurers and families alike! 

Did we mention that we are also pet friendly? Bring the fur babies along for the adventure! Although pets are not allowed in the National Park, we have multiple mountains on site with amazing views, allowing your trusty companions to hit the trails with you! 


Here are a few recommendations during your stay: If you want a good “country” breakfast head to the Terlingua Ranch Lodge, just 4 miles down the road...or for outdoor coffee shop w/ wifi cafe check out “LaPosada Milagros” in the Ghost Town. (Ask for Mimi. She is the owner and a wonderful woman!).

If you want some of the best BBQ around I suggest stopping by Rustic Iron BBQ, http://www.rusticironbbq.com/ for ribs, brisket, & smoked chicken. He is open 11am-5pm, Wednesday-Saturday. His food truck is on the left side of the road heading towards the Ghost Town. Don, the owner and cook, is a dear friend of mine. Tell him Tin Valley sent you...he will love it!

I always suggest heading into the Ghost Town. Be sure to stop at “La Kiva Bar & Grill” on your way. It is a very unique place that you don’t want to miss...then stop at the old cemetery...and then on to the “Porch” for an outdoor beverage. (Connected to the Starlight Theater). There is a good chance there will be both local musicians and visitors, hanging out and playing music. Great vibe for sure and an amazing view of the Chisos Mountains.
Both LaKiva and Starlight Theater open at 5pm. Live music each evening.

If you are interested in Horse Back / Trail Riding call “Big Bend Stables” for reservations. You can find all their info on Google. Please let them know I recommended you. The whole crew of employees are great friends of mine and the business has been here for years.

If you are interested in a rafting trip contact “Big Bend River Tours.” Most come to the Big Bend to visit the National Park, but I have to say the State Park is actually my favorite, and if you do a rafting trip you will raft right thru it. “Closed Canyon” is also one of my favorite hikes in the State Park. As a reminder the National Park does NOT allow pups on the trails; however, the State Park does.

Last but not least you definitely have to go soak in the Hot Springs! Take some cash with you because along the trail you will see items/art (made by families in Boquillas) with a tip jar. Put some money in the jar and take an item. This not only helps support the family’s across the river but you will have a unique remembrance of Big Bend. And if you have your passports then head on over to Boquillas, a very small (AND SAFE!!!) village in Mexico. (Check with visitors center to find out when open/closed.). You will cross the Rio Grande on a flat bottom boat. Have $10 to ride the burros up to the village. Stop at Falcon’s (on the left) to have taco’s and tequilla. Ask for Lydia, the owner. Another beautiful friend of mine!
Enjoy your stay!





USE LONGITUDE/LATITUDE COORDINATES ONLY and/or maps directions that have been provided.    29°29'33.9"N 103°20'27.5"W.  

Please take a screen-shot the directions provided below or print a copy before you arrive.  You will have no cell phone service/wifi about 5 miles out of Alpine.  (88 miles of no service.)   If you arrive at night there are no street lights in the desert so VERY important to follow these exact instructions.  The road will seem never ending but I promise you will reach your destination if you follow the directions and watch your odometer.  

Approx. 60 miles South of Alpine (20 miles north of Terlingua) on Hwy 118.  When you see a large billboard to the east advertising "Terlingua Ranch Lodge" (its white, yellow and black and has a crazy looking rabbit on it) and metal storage units, this is where you turn.  Another point of reference is a cell tower on to the East.  The road name is Terlingua Ranch Road.  Take Terlingua Ranch Road East for 12 miles.  At 12 miles the paved road ends and dirt road begins. Turn Left right there!  Point of reference:  You will see a green dumpster and signs that have "Marathon" written on them to your left.  You will also see an old vintage arrow sign with Tin Valley on it.  What makes this confusing is there is not a street sign showing Sombrero Peak Road.  

Tin Valley is 1.5 miles down a maintained dirt road.  Any vehicle can make it down this road.!  At .5 miles you will come to a Y in the road...STAY TO THE RIGHT!!!  Point of reference:  Look for the smaller Tin Valley sign with the arrow pointing right.  Continue another 1.0 miles to the entrance of Tin Valley.

PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE OVER 20 MPH DOWN THIS ROAD.  CHILDREN AND ANIMALS!  (Plus it also ruins the road if you drive faster.)

Overall Rating: 4.9

Chris and Ronda were great hosts and had a lot of information for the local area. The farm was fun also.

We got the exact experience we expected. We were out among the mountains it was quiet and peaceful. Sites are set-up so you really do not feel like you have neighbors. All RV sites face the mountains and the sunset. The sunset each night was amazing. It was the best place to see the stars at night so dark, it was amazing. They only have power at the site for now but they do bring water around by truck and have a dump station you can use on your way out. They are a little far from Big Bend, but it is totally worth it for the experience we had. Make sure you visit the Ghost Town in Terlingua. Would totally recommend it to other RVer's. If you go do not forget to paint a rock and leave it for others to enjoy, we did!!

Janice Owen

Absolutely love this campground! Wonderful owners and staff. Electric only, but they will deliver water and dump tanks. The spaces are huge with picnic table, fire pit with chairs, and a bbq grill. Property is very unique and peaceful. Best star gazing ever! We stayed in a motor home. The entrance was down a dirt road, but we made it without any problems. There is a back way into BBNP. We had our jeep, but it’s easily passable in a 2WD. Worth the extra travel time! We will definitely be back!! Highly recommend!

Jeffrey Percak

We loved Tin Valley! Stunning, clean, quiet place with big dark sky, kind and friendly people, lots of space between campsites. Wish we had been able to stay longer. Looking forward to making a return visit and spending more time some day.

Amber Dennison

Beautiful views! Off the beaten path and so worth it

Eugene Derengovsky

Nice place far from any noise and hassle. Well maintained campsites, has everything you need. A bit far from park entry, but not too far. Good people working there, thanks Rhonda, Mike and Chris!

Sarah Mantooth

This park was very isolated and very quiet. It was so nice not to be packed in so close. There was power at the site and they had a water truck that could deliver right to your rig. The dump site was also close by and easily accessible. Our 31 ft Class A with a tow car was able to manage the dirt road with no issues. The owner, Rhonda, gave a lot of information on the surrounding area which was nice. We would definitely recommend a visit to Tin Valley.

Nicholas Gamiz

This was our first experience with an RV and it couldn't have been any better! Like other reviews mention, it is about 40 min from Terlingua proper, so there will be an added drive into and out of the Natl and State parks. However, compared to the sites closer in, it is way more serene. We barely noticed or heard other rv'ers or campers, the sites are huge, and you can have a fire! They even have wood for sale. Ronda and Chris did a great job making us feel at home and attended to every need. Will fill water even while you are away for the day. Terlingua ranch (10 min drive) is great as well! There is a swimming pool for the kids, proper showers, and a great restaurant. Bill at the front desk was supremely helpful and even Drew us a map of all the highlights around the area. We used only his map all week and it was spot on! Don't be too thrown off by the distance away from the parks. Yes, it is a little drive after your long days, but once you get "home" it makes it all worth it! We are already looking forward to the next trip!

We had a wonderful time at Tin Valley Rv Park! The surroundings are just beautiful and peaceful, our campsite was large and we loved the big fire pit!

Seth List

Tin Valley is WAYYYYY out there but well worth the drive. My wife and I visit Big Bend at least a few times a year but we were wary of trying to get down into Chisos with our Airstream. Instead, we took the trailer out to Tin Valley and stayed in the Airstream while our friends camped in a tent at site #6. The views were epic, the layout was perfect for our group, and we appreciated a) being able to build a fire and b) having a fire ring at the site. We spent our days in BBNP - only ~45 min drive - and our evenings at Tin Valley sipping adult beverages and talking by the fire. It was heaven!

Kat Gose

What a treat! Loved site #6 in our RV. Very relaxing and beautiful place to stay. One of a kind place, so cool! Day tripped to Big Bend and enjoyed Terlingua.

Johnny Stenerson

Great time had by all.

Troy Duncan

Liked the resort. Liked the owner, she was very nice and wanted to make sure was had everything we needed.The only negative would be it’s a long way off the highway,12 miles.
