The Secluded Glampground In Texas That Will Take You A Million Miles Away From It All
El Cosmico in Texas lies in the desert town of Marfa, and it’s that kind of place that once you visit, you never forget about it. Although we Texans are pretty good at roughing it, sometimes it’s nice to experience something in between a five-star hotel and a measly little tent with a compost toilet and no running water – something that allows us to fully enjoy our surroundings without having to think as much about basic survival needs. With several lodging options to suit your individual needs, you’ll feel completely at home despite being in the middle of nowhere at 4800 ft. elevation beneath the Milky Way band.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
El Cosmico is open year-round, so it’s very important to plan for the weather. In the colder months, the pipes tend to freeze, so make sure to plan for anything. Good dogs (aren’t they all?) are welcome for a minute fee, and if you’d like to see more pictures, read in detail about the property and the amazingly creative culture it harbors, as well as book your time here, please visit their website to do so.

What are the best places to stay in Texas?
You might be tempted to stay in a big city like Houston, Dallas, or Amarillo, but we think the very best places to stay in the Lone Star State are out under the stars in the never-ending Texas sky. There’s a ton of camping, fishing and other fun things to do here, so make sure to plan your stay around your planned activities!
