“Nice little picnic area serving up mystery light entertainment.”

Reviewed Mar 18, 2017

Overall Rating

Another picnic area in Texas that allows overnight camping. We generally avoid these as places to stay, but this particular stop had great reviews and we were super curious about the lights. There is a long stretch of parking area to pull your rig up along the curb and by sunset, the entire lot was full of RV's hoping to catch the ligh... more

“I didn't see any lights”

Reviewed Feb 03, 2017

Overall Rating

Good spot for an overnight, but the lights failed to show for us. Bah!

Right off the highway, so don't expect much in privacy or quiet.

“Watch the Marfa Lights from your roof. Somewhat quiet.”

Reviewed Dec 21, 2016

Overall Rating

We spent the night here to watch the Marfa Lights. The mystery of the lights had us hooked and we had to see them for ourselves. We spent the evening watching the sunset and lights from our roof and it was incredible. You have a 360 degree view. There's a restroom there and it's fairly quiet. You're a good 50 yards from the moderate... more

“A fun spot to stay for the night and view the mysterious Marfa lights!”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2016

Overall Rating

We laid up here for a night on our way to Marfa. It worked out beautifully because we arrived late in the day and there was plenty of parking available in the 2 lots. I'd say there's room for maybe 15-20 rigs altogether. We pulled in from the west end so that our trailer door would open up to face the view rather than the highway. Ther... more

Mystery Lights and a Breakfast Burrito

We spent the evening passing around a pair of binoculars and debating the theories of the lights as we viewed them in the distance. A new friend, Mike Radcliffe, who owns Thurston’s Lobster Pound on Mo...
