I loved the vibe and amazing feel to this town. There is frame worthy sight where ever you look. People can find this town creepy but it’s a must see place if you are in the area.

Good spot to use as base camp for big bend np. Much more accessible than Marathon. Better road, closer to the park and many more motels, camps and restaurants.

Terlingua is a true gem. It is a ghost town that had it's heyday during the mercury mining era at the turn of the 20th century. It has been revived by artisans, old hippies and people enjoying a strongly community connected way of life in...More

The Ghost Town of Terlingua is not in Big Bend. There is a nice gift store to check out. The Starlight Theatre has good music. There are once-abandoned buildings made into people's homes.

We went to Terlingua for a river rafting trip, and were told we simply HAD to visit the Terlingua Ghost Town. There's a pamphlet for a self-guided tour in the store there, which took us about 20 minutes to complete; somehow there just isn't enough...More

The cemetery was interesting. The ghost town had a self guided tour pamphlet in the souvenir store. Kind of underwhelming. It looks like a place people go to sit on the porch of the store and hang out. Store was huge and full of souvenirs...More
