Stillwell's Store and RV Park is located just north of Big Bend National Park, about 8 miles from the Persimmon Gap entrance. The old-fashioned general store carries soft drinks, beer, ice, canned goods and regular gasoline. Our RV park features sites with full 30/50 amp hook-ups (electric, water and sewer), water and electric only sites, and tent sites. Come enjoy the peace and quiet at Stillwell while exploring the nearby Big Bend National Park and Black Gap Wildlife Management Area. Given our ideal location, this is the perfect spot for stargazers, bird watchers and those just wanting to unplug for a bit. Whether its for a short and or long term stay, we hope to see you soon!
*****Store hours for the summertime are 9:00-5:00 daily.*****

Please don't flush baby wipes
Please do not flush baby wipes down our toilets OR down your RV and into our septic system. Even if they claim to be "septic safe". There is no such thing. If it is not toilet tissue or waste, don't flush it! If this continues to be a problem, we will have to raise our prices in order to offset repair costs.
Directions to our Location!
Please take a look at our directions on our website, stillwellstore.com. We are located 46 miles south of Marathon off of Hwy 385 then left on FM 2627, just outside of Big Bend National Park. We are not located in the town of Alpine proper, despite what our address may make you think. We do not recommend using a GPS.

Wifi and Cell
There is no cell phone service here. The closest signal is roughly 15 miles away inside Big Bend National Park. The Wifi here is limited. It is available from the porch and is suitable for checking emails, etc. No downloading or streaming. Pretend it's 1985 and enjoy things other than having your phone in your face.
No dirt bikes, ATVs, etc.
If it's not street legal there is no point in bringing it here.
No drones, we like quiet and we like privacy.
All pets must be on a leash and are NOT to have free run of the campground or to be left unattended. This is an area with rattlesnakes, coyotes, bears and many other critters that are dangerous to your pets. Pick up after your animals. Do not bring your pets in the store or museum.
All fires are to be in a designated fire container, no exceptions. Wood fires are currently banned.
No washing vehicles
Yes, we know, your vehicle/motorcycle/trailer/RV/jetpack/spaceship or however you travel most likely got dirty on the way down here. Your visiting the desert. That's just how it is. We are on a well and cannot allow the luxurious consumption of water many are accustom to. There will be a $25 charge minimum if caught washing vehicles. Please, just wait until you get to an actual carwash or home.
