1946 Vintage RV that is an "Upscale" off-the-grid primitive campsite. No tent needed! As seen on Nat Geo, "Badlands Texas," which highlighted my new business, "Tin Valley Retro Rentals." Located near the National & State Park, along with the art and culture scene. You will love Tin Valley because of 90 private acres against the mountains, with the solitude, and the magnitude of stars & milky way directly overhead. Great for couples, solo adventurers, families, and fur babies.

Tin Valley is about solitude, tranquility, and silence, so all we ask is that you be respectful of other guests during your stay.
Absolutely no loud music; however, if you play a musical instrument we definitely invite you to play at your campsite.
We are a pet friendly community, as we have 3 pups, 7 kitties, and SAMPSON, who is a miniature burro! We understand that dogs will bark from time to time, but please assist in bringing any barking to a halt quickly. PLEASE NO dogs that continually bark, and absolutely NO aggressive or destructive dogs allowed.
With that being said we LOVE fur babies and welcome them!!!
Do not get upset if your cell phone or wifi does not work in the Big Bend area. You will most likely only be able to send/receive text but NOT phone calls in most areas; however, I do have wifi on the property.
Just take a deep breath and say V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!!!!
