What folks are saying about us
Christina - Lotus 5 - September 20, 2019
"This place is perfect for glamping in style!! We had the most amazing trip. Beautiful scenery, very strong/durable lotus (we were there during a crazy windy lightening/thunder storm), very close to the best restaurants the town has to offer, and close to the main attraction - Big Bend. Really cool space and we can’t wait to go back!!"
Joanna - Casa Agave - September 20, 2019
"I live in West Texas, but am also a world traveler and this was the BEST place I have ever stayed. Quick response, helpful, secluded yet close enough to access nature/town. The place was immaculate and very thoughtful. You won't regret staying here!"
Edward - Casa Piedra - September 1, 2019

"This was a bucket list destination for me and it did not disappoint!!! The views are worth it. The space is clean and trendy. I cannot wait to go back."
Leticia - Casa Agave - August 14, 2019
"My husband and I will never forget this experience! Upon arrival, it was breathtaking and so peaceful. I didn't even want to leave. Next time, will def have to stay for more than one night."
Mike - Javelina Tipi - August 12, 2019
"Wow. Staying at Basecamp and in the tipi was a magical experience. I spent my mornings and early afternoons hiking in the park and the late afternoons and evenings watching the sunset and the stars come out. And while it was 107 degees outside, the tipi was cool and comfortable. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a unique and way comfortable experience in Big Bend area. Cheers."
Kevin - Desert Pearl - August 10, 2019
"The check in/out was super easy, communication wasn’t even needed since all information was provided ahead of our trip and the location was convenient while still having a quiet place to enjoy the stars. We would highly recommend staying here."
Sally - Candelilla Tipi - August 11, 2019
"The tipi was exactly how it appeared online. It actually is quite spacious with beautiful decor. They also provide kitchen utensils such as plates, silverware, and Dawn liquid soap. The host responded to all our questions while we were there within minutes! Definitely would recommend staying at Basecamp!"
Laura - Ocotillo Suite - August 8, 2019
"Beautiful casita in an amazing location! First timers to the area and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Quiet area but close to the ghost town restaurants and stores. Super easy keypad check-in. The suite was very sophisticated yet comfortable, well maintained, with great outdoor seating. The extra outdoor shower was a fun experience! Unbelievable desert views and amazing dark skies, which was perfect for stargazing. You will not be disappointed!"
Roger - Lotus 1 - July 30, 2019
"Great place! When I first saw the pictures of this place I thought it was too good to be true. I am happy to say that it was the same as the pictures and even better!! Really lovely, fast check in, and the amenities were top notch. I recommend checking the lotuses you will not regret it. A true wonderful place to appreciate nature and the night sky."
Oyvind - Candelilla Tipi - July 25, 2019
"Absolutely beautiful place. The tipi was clean and cool – we had to spend a good few hours inside, because of the heat, and it was perfect for just lounging about, reading on the bed, napping, listening to the birds and insects outside. And then the sun went down and we lit the fire pit, and the experience turned surreal. After the fire died down, we sat for hours just watching the sky. Basecamp Terlingua really also went above and beyond with their service afterwards, when we discovered we had forgotten some belongings in our tipi."
Natalie - Casa Azul - July 18, 2019
"Really beautiful property and a great location to everything (easily can walk to a lot of things, including Starlight Theatre and some great shops). Highly recommend sitting outside on the chairs at night to watch the stars. Beds were incredibly comfortable -- nothing better than sinking into a delicious, comfy bed after a 10 hour drive. The outdoor shower was also a lovely touch. Definitely a great stay in Terlingua that I would highly recommend to anyone stopping through town."
Anita - Lotus 5 - July 11, 2019
"Basecamp is amazing! The tent was gorgeous, very clean and so comfortable (that bed!!!). Went on a hot July day and the A/C worked wonders, definitely felt like glamping v. camping by eliminating that heat. Seriously could not recommend this tent/experience enough! Like other reviews, I just wish I'd stayed longer!"
