Rowan and B will arrive between 8-9. We will have a picnic breakfast waiting for you. (Bring a mug for your coffee - no glass at this park).

Bring all your pool gear. Giant floaties welcome!  Bring a cooler, anything you could want. We will be here all day! 

Upon arrival: Drop off all your stuff by the bathrooms, leave a person with your stuff, and someone park the car. It's so much easier.

Stuff to do

Stuff to know

  •  at heEverything is pretty far apart from each other. Alpine – 30 mins away. Balmorhea – 1 hour, Prada – 30 mins. So have that in your mind. Getting around Marfa – no time. BUT it is HOT AF out there y’all. It’s the desert in August.
  • The afternoon is a great time to take a nap. You will feel the call to sloooooow down in the heat, and that’s great. Take a nap. Go in the Aircon and read, rest, recoup. 
  • Listen to your body. Stay ahead of the hydration. Just take it easy and drink water even if you are not thirsty.
  • Groceries – plan on bringing what you need. There are three stores (and they close around 8pm). There’s the Dollar General, Porter’s is a fairly low rent country grocery store (but it’s soooo much better than it used to be). And then there is the Get Go which is a small high-end grocery (organic stuff, – like a mini whole foods).
  • Nothing is open on Monday, or Sunday or Tuesday, or whenever they feel like it for that matter.
  • Food. It is expensive to eat out there and takes forever (what’s your hurry y’all). So know that going in. Plan when you wanna spend the $ and time eating out.
  • Frama!!! They have good coffee, ice cream, INTERNET and laundry. The nitro cold brew is BOMB!
  • INTERNET: It’s so much better than it used to be. The Lincoln has GREAT internet. 
  • The light here!!! OMG, shoot shoot shoot photos. You will get home and see how magical this light is. Stop and just notice how it rests on the ground. It’s pretty damn stunning. 
  • At night, it’s DARK!!! Be mindful if you are walking at night – a few years ago Brad and I kept running into a very serious Skunk at the court house.
  • Sticker season is wicked. The courthouse has the best sticker free grass for pets and picnics.
