Getting Here and Getting Around

We are located on Highway 170 where the road bends to meet the Rio Grande which is 17 miles southwest the junction of Highways 118/170 at Terlingua, Texas.  The resort is tucked between the Big Bend National Park and the Big Bend Ranch State Park.  While a vehicle is not required at the resort with housing close to the facilities, a vehicle is useful for major shopping or outing trips to Presidio, located 55 miles southwest from the resort, or Alpine, located 95 miles north of the resort.  To put it in perspective, we are approx 200 miles to the closest Wal-Mart in Fort Stockton, and 95 miles to the closest McDonalds or stop light in Alpine!  We are here because we love the remoteness.  No traffic, no big-city lights, creates an environment of peace and quiet and unsurpassed stargazing!

For Fun

There are numerous activities including hiking, biking, rafting, and swimming at the resort or with our outfitters.  There are more restaurant and shopping opportunities as close as 12 miles away.  A full day trip could take in the Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, Fort Davis and its’ historical park and town; the McDonald Observatory; art, shopping, and the Sul Ross State University in Alpine; the Marfa Lights and the town of Marfa; and much more!

How to Apply

We accept applications for seasonal employment, however, most of our positions are year-round with benefits and we hope you will consider full-time employment in your work search. Our busy season runs Labor Day through Memorial Day but we are open year-round.
