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.

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.

Maximum Length of Stay

No permanent living available.

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.

Longitude/Latitude Coordinates: 29°29'33.9"N 103°20'27.5"W.


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" 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 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. 

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!

Overall Rating: 4.9

One of my favorite campsites I’ve stayed at so far! Stunning location, very friendly staff, amazing number of animals to hang out with. Woke up one morning and drank coffee with the pigs that had “escaped” from their pen. They may wander a bit, but they know where their home is. Samson the Donkey was another wonderful pal for the stay. We were able to head down the road to take showers for $2 and grab a quick bite at the lodge cafe. Both very helpful for our week long stay in our RV. Definitely recommend this place!

What a great find. Lay back and just clean as anyone could want. Our site fit or 43ft fifth wheel and had a fence so our dog could stay outside. We will be going back every spring with all the friends that are ready for different way to relax. HAVING no internet or cell T-Mobil was a plus. Very relaxing. Made us play cards and talk. Who would of thought. Mario and Alaine April 2021

Mark Schaefer

Great Hosts and a lot of things to discover.

drew kuenneke

The only thing wrong is the road for the last mile to get there. This is far above the run of the mill park. Tranquility plus. People were very accommodating and provided extras and entertainment.

Denise Robertson

This place is so perfect that we extended our stay to 2 weeks after just the first night. Friendly, affordable, beautiful, quiet and peaceful.

Janice Owen

Love camping here. Very peaceful and the most amazing night skies!

Christopher Bateman

If you want a quiet remote location than this is it! The stargazing was absolutely amazing. This is an eclectic spot with vintage trailers for rent throughout the property. The campsites are spread out there is fresh water and a dump station. The hosts are extremely welcoming and helpful. The only downside is it is a haul to big bend, but the drive is extremely scenic, if you start your day early, you can be back to enjoy the solitude of your campsite. Thanks Rhonda and the entire Tin Valley team for making our stay so comfortable. Special shout out to Mike, Meg and Sampson!

Sarah Nichols

My family loved this place! Not too close to town. Perfect for what we needed.

Vergne Smith

Very nice and remote campground. Well kept and comfortable.

Troy Lawson

We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights. Great location with a wonderful host. We were treated to a St Patty Day celebration 1 evening complete with local musicians, burgers and beer!

Tin Valley Retro Rentals RV park is a really nice RV park. The spots are spaced apart really well, not lined up almost on top of each other like most RV parks. They were very helpful showing us around when we first got there. We had lots of fun exploring their 90+ acres and climbing one of the two mountains on the property that had amazing views at the top. We will definitely stay there again.

nancy McCormick

We Love Tin Valley, Rhonda does a great job, been coming back for three years now.

chris combs

Great place! All the sites spaced out so plenty of privacy so not one RV after another. worth the extra drive to Big Bend. kids loved the animals: donkey, cats, pigs, chickens. staff are the nicest people. just a great place

Bruce Watkins

This is a great place to park the camper while exploring BBnp. We followed the written directions and made it without getting lost. Todd set us up at a site with a beautiful view of the valley, Our site included a fence which was prefect for our dog to roam without being tied up. The sites are well maintained, and spaced far enough apart to have privacy. We loved our stay at Tin Valley and look forward to going back someday.

Care Gerland

This place is great! Very off the beaten path and has beautiful views. Rhonda is super nice and the property is so interesting and funky. We brought our own trailer and the hookups worked great. RV and camping sites are nicely spread out so you’re not on top of someone else. The retro rentals are fun and quirky. Great place to just walk around. We will definitely be back!

Carol Pavliska

This was the quietest place we’ve ever stayed. The sites were clean with thoughtful touches like chairs, fire pits, and grills. Todd checked to see if we needed anything (he filled up our water tank), but otherwise, we were left alone. The quirky bits (decorated buses for rent, animals, painted rocks) were delightful, but it was the utter peacefulness that will bring us back. *We stayed 5 nights.

Andrew Vantreese

We LOVED our stay at this unique and beautiful location! Rhonda is super communicative and detailed. The sites are well maintained, have beautiful views, and are spaced far enough apart that you truly feel out in the elements on your own. The night sky and the sunsets/sunrises are magnificent. A photographer’s dream! We set up here for our base camp for BBNP. It’s a 45 minute drive to the park entrance, which may be a bit for some since driving within the massive park itself involves a lot of mileage, but it’s so beautiful I always enjoyed the drive. Check out our video of our stay here in this area to get a vibe of the beauty and magnificence that awaits you. https://youtu.be/Fkn2lRflxOo

Great place to stay if you are wanting away from it all Owner and staff very friendly I got my 40' Super C towing a crew cab F150 around the site just fine. The RV lots are laid out in a way that you are not looking at your neighbor. You feel like your in your own Desert Oasis. Great Sunsets and clean dark skies for stargazing. I will definitely return and recommend anyone looking for the Desert experience consider Tin Valley, Its not your "Standard" RV Park.

Matt Schuppert

We loved our 4 nights at Tin Valley. The hospitality, unique whimsical vibe, and farm animals, made an already magical place even better. My children absolutely loved our visit to Tin Valley and preferred being there over the National or State Park. Can't wait to go back.
