The Lodge is located at 16000 Terlingua Ranch Road, Terlingua, TX 79852.

For the office or reservations call 432-371-3146 or email us at frontdesk@terlinguaranch.com

We are in the Chihuahuan Desert and it is best to have a full gas tank when you leave Alpine.  The nearest bank is in Study Butte.  The nearest pharmacy is in Alpine.  Although we have a cafe, you may want to also bring drinks and snacks with you.  We do sell ice.




Travelers heading south from Alpine will travel about 62 miles and then turn left at the large Terlingua Ranch sign. Follow Terlingua Ranch Road for 16 miles. The first 13 miles are paved, the remaining three miles are a well maintained dirt road accessible by most vehicles.
