Kids and I loved our camping trip here. Great host and very nice primitive facilities. We will definitely return.

Very solid spot to camp for the night in Terlingua. The site is a large and flat stretch of land surrounded by picturesque mountains, but what really makes the Goat Pens worth staying at is Jeff and his welcoming personality (though the bathroom and shower is also a plus). When we arrived, he greeted us at our campsite and told us about his past and the history of Terlingua. It was a really nice way to start our trip. The Goat Pens are also conveniently located ten minutes from the local market and not much further from the entrance to Big Bend. Word of caution: it can get a bit windy at the site so I would recommend finding a camp spot towards the outer edge of the area. Not crazy windy, but the extra shielding by the hills are worth it late in the evening. Thanks, Jeff!

About us

Primitive camping and dry RV sites. Plenty of acreage to explore. The Goat Pens of Cigar Springs Ranch are easily accessed and located on South County Road. This central location provides an ideal basecamp close to the Terlingua Ghost Town and both Big Bend State and National Parks. The unique geology and topography of the Goat Pens made this a popular movie set and many westerns were filmed here in the 80's and 90's. Come out and enjoy seclusion, peace and quiet, awesome scenery with sunrises and sunsets to die for. All while still being able to easily take advantage of the area's other attractions.
