What is the status of Stillwell Store and campground? Hoping to stop in and camp- 1st part of November.

The Facebook page mentions it under new management. Last year it closed for deer hunting- so checking up.

Let me know if you have an update?

Pic is one the nicest agates I have found their. Spent a little extra time carving it.

Love walking the hills.~

Give them a call and find out the for your specific dates: 432-376-2244.   I was there in March and they were open with plenty of campsites to go around.

You can enjoy free WIFI there - so, instead of enjoying yourself out hiking or watching the stars around the ole campfire, you can Faceplant or post to BBC and everything else instead.  Guess they probably got cell service out that way also.  Used to be a huge dead area, thankfully.

They were closed for the summer.  Surprised it would close for hunting season, got to be a bright spot in their economic food chain.

Hi James
long time no see! Not sure the status at Stillwell right now either but Tanya and I would like to do a
group rock hunt there during our trip in Dec. We will camp in Terlingua again.
Since Nan passed away things are changing there. Hope fully not too much will change there!!
Tanya was planning to call this week and check the status for rock hunting...I will post here what she found out.
