For three nights I stayed at the El Cosmico campground in Marfa, TX. It is a quite, easy-going campground close to Marfa's nr 1 attraction, the Chinati foundation (and to Marfa Burritos!). You can choose between bring-your-own-tent-camping, scout tents, Tipis or wonderful Trailers. I picked the "Little Pinky", perfect choice for one Person, great for a couple (if they like eachother a lot!). Small kitchen, Espresso maker, fridge, tuner, candles and a van. No A/C, but since it gets colder during the nights that was ok. Shower and toilet right next to the trailer, but that was okay for me, everything very clean and simple.
So, if you decide to come all the way to this wonderful city and you like it a bit different (you can ALWAYS stay in a Hotel/Motel) - go for it! Buy some food and beer, listen to Marfa public Radio (93.5) and just watch the stars in the sky.

It is second home to intrepid travelers and wanderers from all corners of the planet.
