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!
DO NOT USE GOOGLE MAP!!!
DO NOT USE ADDRESS!!! IF YOU DO YOU WILL END UP LOST IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, 40 miles away!!! BY THE TIME YOU ARE THERE YOU WILL HAVE NO CELL SERVICE OR WAY OF CONTACTING ME TO HELP YOU!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE COPY AND FOLLOW THE WRITTEN DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU HEAD THIS WAY!!!
USE LONGITUDE/LATITUDE COORDINATES ONLY and/or maps directions that have been provided.
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.)
10pm-8am. Enjoy the natural peacefulness of the area. Please no loud radios or loud generators.
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.
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.
No permanent living available.
There are 100’s of miles of off-roads to explore so feel free to bring your Jeep/ATV/Dirt Bike.
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.
First night deposit is required at time of reservation. Cancelation refunds up to 72 hours prior to reservation.
