A Texas Big Bend resort with swimming pool, showers, laundrymat and more.

“Love the lodge! The staff is friendly… the pool is always refreshing on a hot summer day, and the live music at the Bad Rabbit Cafe is always good!”–Barrett C.

Terlingua Ranch Lodge is a Big Bend resort with conveniences that include Wi-Fi, a swimming pool, bathhouse with showers, laundrymat with washers and dryers, and a cold storage deer/meat locker for hunters ▶️.

Swimming Pool

Our pool is a rare pleasure in the desert. Open from 10:00am to 10:00pm seven days a week (March through October) with adjoining cabana patio, fire ring and large BBQ pit, it’s the perfect place to unwind with friends, family and guests. The Bad Rabbit Cafe is next door with food and beverages. No glass is allowed inside pool fencing.

Swimming pool use is included with each room, RV or campsite rental. If you are not a guest at the Lodge there is a $25.00 season pass for POATRI members in good standing or otherwise a $8.50 fee per person per day. Pass keys are available at the office.

Bathhouse & Showers

After a day of fun in the desert, enjoy a hot shower in our men’s or women’s bathhouse facility. Open 24 hours year-round. The bathhouse is located next to our swimming pool.


The laundry room has several washers and dryers available from 10:00am to 10:00pm every day. Modified hours during Spring Break and holidays are 6:00pm to 6:00am. Because of mineral content in well water, we recommend saving your whites for when you return home. The cost is $2.00 per wash load and $0.25 increments for the dryers. Bring quarters!

Cold Storage Locker

Our cold storage locker is open during official Texas hunting season or special events. There is a $25.00 fee per animal for storage. Game requires a hunters registration tag. Our office checks for a license but not a permit.
