Month of March

Posted by peytonvsmith on December 16, 2017

Hi everyone,

We’ve been getting quite a few calls here at the store in regards to making reservations in March. I just wanted to remind everyone that we do not take reservations in March until after March 20th. We are first come, first serve before then. That being said, we have never turned anyone away and we will always do our best to accommodate everyone. We have plenty of space for pitching tents and, in the event we run out of RV spaces with hook-ups, we do allow dry camping. March is the busiest time of the year for Big Bend National Park and surrounding areas, so please consider that when preparing for your travels.

With any questions, please comment here, send us an email or give us a call at the store.

Have a good weekend!

Rockhounding Closed

Posted by peytonvsmith on November 27, 2017

Our rockhounding and primitive camping area is closed for the next two weeks. There is no rockhounding at all on the property during this time. If you are looking to tent camp, we will still be able to accommodate you, just in a different space than normal.

Please call the store if you have any questions.

Thanks and have a great week!

Thanksgiving

Posted by peytonvsmith on November 18, 2017

Hi everybody,

We are getting a lot phones calls about the upcoming holiday so I thought I would answer a few common questions here.

Tent camping sites are first come, first serve. We do not accept reservations as they aren’t needed. We have never turned anyone anyway and we aren’t going to start now. In the event all of the designated tent camping sites fill up, we will still find a place for you to pitch a tent.

If you are a tent camper arriving after hours, there is a sign with maps out front of the store telling you what to do. If you are needing an RV site and plan to arrive after hours, please give us a call so that we can let you know where to set up. If you pull in and pick your own site, you will run the risk of being asked to move sites.

Small campfires are permitted as long as they are in a designated fire ring. Currently, we do not have wood available to sell at the store. We will have limited wood available for Thanksgiving with a 2 bundle max per campsite per day.

R.V. site availability is getting scarce on 50 amp sites. If you choose to just show up, we may only have 30 amp sites available. We have plenty of 30 amp water and electric only sites available and do not expect to fill them all.

Our rockhounding and tent camping area will be closing the Sunday after Thanksgiving for hunting season. If you are a tent camper who intends to stay past Sunday, we can still accommodate you just in a different area.

With any questions, just comment here or give us a call.

Closures for hunting season

Posted by peytonvsmith on November 2, 2017

Hi everyone,

Please note that, starting the Sunday after Thanksgiving, we will be closed to rock hounding for two weeks. Nobody will be allowed in the rock hounding/primitive camping area AT ALL. This is due to safety concerns during hunting season. We will still be able to accommodate tent campers just closer to the store.

If you have any questions just give us a call at the store.

Thanks and have a great day!

Fourth of July weekend

Posted by peytonvsmith on June 30, 2017

Hi everyone, we’ve been getting a lot of calls here at the store about this weekend. We’ve got plenty of space for RVs and tent camping, so come on out! Yesterday we reached a high of 116 degrees and there is very little to no shade on the property so please prepare accordingly. The snakes are out, so bring your flash lights and watch your step. We are not allowing wood fires at this time, charcoal only and it must be in a designated fire ring. The entire county is under a burn ban.

If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call here at the store.

Thanks and have a great weekend!

Hi everyone,

Posted by peytonvsmith on June 16, 2017

We just wanted to issue a “heads up” for anyone who might be coming out soon. With summer here the weather is very hot and getting hotter. When it’s not really hot we are getting a lot of storms. Due to all the rain the roads that lead to our tent camping sites are not in very good shape. Going out to our primitive sites will be at your own risk but we’ve got plenty of spots closer to the store where we will allow tent camping.

Please give us a call at the store with any questions or concerns.

Have a great weekend!

Have a great day!

Water interruptions

Posted by peytonvsmith on April 25, 2017

Hi everyone,

If you are planning on visiting soon please be aware we will be treating our water system and will experience a loss of water May 2nd- May 5th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but it is crucial to maintaining a quality water supply. Water will not be available, you can still camp but bring your own water. With any questions, please contact us at the store.

Thanks and have a great day!

Summer is coming

Posted by peytonvsmith on April 6, 2017

Hi everyone, with the warmer weather quickly approaching I just wanted to send out a couple of reminders. We’ve already seen 97 degrees here at the store so we expect this summer to be a hot one. The activities we allow here (such as rock hounding) become limited once the heat hits so please call the store to inquire on what is allowed before you come out. We also see many people headed towards Black Gap WMA who inquire about a permit. Black Gap is use by permit only and they do not sell the permits on the area, nor do we. You can acquire a permit anywhere you buy a hunting and fishing license.

With any questions please just give us a call or send us an email. All contact info is listed on the left of the screen.

Thanks and have a great day!
