7 Things To Do In Terlingua

A small ghost town located near the Rio Grande and currently has a population of 82 with only a couple of restaurants. If you’re looking for a getaway to the middle of nowhere, visit Terlingua!

Camp Elena is conveniently located minutes from the heart of Terlingua Ghost Town and the Big Bend National Park entrance.


The property itself is really bare and simple but I think that’s the beauty of the experience to just fully experience the quietness of West Texas.


I survived the 3-hour kayaking adventure and would highly recommend SUP or kayaking on the Rio Grande River if you’re in Terlingua.

Kayaking on the Rio Grande River

A quick hike to a stunning view of the canyon that has the tallest cliffs forming the canyon wall—up to 1,500 feet.

Santa Elena Canyon

Big Bend is only 8 miles from Terlingua so it’s a quick drive. Don't use Google Maps when driving through the park and to use the paper map instead.

Hike Big Bend Ranch State Park

We came here for dinner and the place was definitely the hot spot of the town. If you’re lucky, there is sometimes live music here.
