B.C. Ranch R.V. Park, Alpine, Texas

Here is a view of the desert near the end of our trip to Alpine.
Up ahead on the left is the B.C. Ranch R.V. Park.  The land surrounding the park and across the road is actually a working cattle ranch.
That's our camper at the front of the park on the end lot.  Great location!  
This is looking from the back of our camper to the back of the park.  The Talon Toy Hauler to the left belongs to our neighbors from Miller Creek R.V. Park in Johnson City, Texas.  We met up with Ann and Bob in Alpine.  They lived in this area for around 20 years, before becoming full time RVers.  The trees most likely aren't native to the area, as they have deep water reservoirs around them and have to be watered weekly to keep them thriving. 
This is the scenery at the back of the park.  There is a small community nestled amongst the mountains.  It's pretty seeing the silhouette of the mountains at night and the lights twinkling out there.
We've enjoyed seeing deer in the r.v. park, but at times we've had to take extra caution when tying the dogs outside.  The deer are used to people and quite bold!
This is the park office.  We had planned to stay a month and move on to Arizona.  With the cost of replacing our camper tires, we have opted to stay longer.  Rates are comparable to the Lost Alaskan R.V. Park, but with the advantage of not having to pay for electricity.  There is free Internet that is reasonably decent.  The only stipulation with staying at B.C. Ranch R.V. Park is that residents must stay below the posted 5 mile per hour speed limit when driving through the park.  The park is a nice mix of working folks and travelers.  It's located a pleasant 3 miles outside of town.  We'd highly recommend it for your stay in Alpine!
