Park has become very run down since they turned it over to the private firm, no maintenance has or is being done, no one cleans up the lot from debris. We planned a week, left after 2 days, constant power outages, some low, some high, some involving the entire park. Loved this park years ago, but cannot recommend. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week to explore the east side of Big Bend National Park. Considering the place is little more than a parking lot, I was surprised we enjoyed it as much as we did, but then we spent most of the daytime hours out and about. We appreciated having electricity as we often needed the A/C with the temps rising to the high 80's on several days. We were told to park our 40-foot class A crosswise in site 25 and take the two car parking spots adjacent to it as well; this gave us a lot of private space in the shade on the hook-ups side of the rig and seems to be the norm for big rigs staying here. This site has the advantage that if you position your rig right, you can get the wi-fi signal from the campground store. There is a two-pump service station at the store -- both gas and diesel are available. Propane is also available, but during our stay it was limited to certain days when an appropriately-trained person was on duty; we didn't need to top off, so it wasn't an isssue, but inquire on arrival if you need propane. Laundry and bathroom/shower open 23 hours a day ... didn't need to use them, but lots of people were using them and we heard no complaints. The nature trail hike from the non-hookups campground is lovely and makes a good spot for sunsets. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

This campground is basically a parking lot for campers but we'll worth it if you want the hookups. Even in January the a/c came in handy as the temp hit 83 degrees. The grassy area behind the camper made up for the bare parking spot. We had a nice shady area to sit under. The store was convienent and had wifi service if you got close enough to it. Absolutely no cell phone service unless you drove 20 miles back to the main visitor center.
As others have said the drive in is long but there are fuel stations in 3 spots in the park.
If you want to see a lot of the park you need at least 3 full days because it is so big. If you want to dry camp the other Rio Grande Village without hookups is very nice.
We would stay again. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites were oddly laid out, but easily accessible by any size or configuration rig. Please note its about two hours from Marathon to campground, and over an hour once in the park. It is remote. Stars are awesome. Water,electric and sewer at every site. Laundry also open 24 hours if needed. Had a grew time, but whew. Hot.....

I was surprised we liked it as much as we did based on other reviews. We were in a 40 foot motor home and found the spaces more than adequate for our 4 slides. The site was paved as were the roads in and out and all level. This is the only place in the park with full hook ups. There is a nice convenience store with all the basic grocery items you would need. There are large trees and grassy areas that you back up to but not around the sites. There are only 25 RV sites so book early. The park is big so it took an hour to the rv village park from the entrance. Internet was available at the Chisos Mt Lodge but not in the RV park. No cable. For the most part you are off the grid.

We'd recommend the park. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

Eat at the Chisos Mountain lodge! The soup and salad bar is excellent. Homemade soup everyday. And the setting is lovely.

This is a hard campground to rate. Big Bend Park is a Ten all day long! But this campground is simply a parking lot for RVs. They are lined up side by side, close together. The worst aspect is the narrowness of the fairway between one row and another. We watched people with fifth wheels and long trailers try to back in with no room to do so. It's a shame that with so much space in this park, that they couldn't allocate another ten feet of parking lot space. There was a picnic table for each site on the uneven and unmowed grassy area behind your RV. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

This is a clean park, beautiful scenery, a good base from which to see Big Bend. The restrooms and showers are clean and modern. They are closed from 7-8 AM, which seems like the time most people would like to shower - not too customer focused. The showers are $1.50 for 5 minutes. The sites are VERY tight, back in sites. No picnic table and barely space for one anyway. There is no shade. The entire "campground" is paved. There is WIFI at the office only, and it is in and out. One whole day it was out. There is a large laundry with newer machines, but we didn't use it. We made a reservation one day in advance. The park did fill up by night. There aren't too many sites - 20-30. we would stay here again, for proximity to the national park. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Travel Trailer.

All back-ins. Electric and water are at back of lot. Sewer connections at side. On one side sewer connections are horizontal. WiFi free, but only at the store. No cable. 50 amp available. Would be difficult with a 45-ft. Rig but doable. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

I've stayed at Rio Grande Village RV, and the RV park in Lajitas. If your trip to BBNP is primarily going to consist of visiting the Chisos Mountains portion of the park, I recommend you stay at Lajitas instead - it's a few miles further away from the Chisos than RGV, but it's got better facilities. So - RGV RV park. It's a small, narrow parking lot. We had trouble backing our 32' trailer into our slots, because of the trailer across from us. Some of the 40+ foot RV's had even more trouble. Full hookups. it is conveniently located to see all of the eastern parts of the park. There is a small convenience store with a nice range of stuff you might be missing, a laundromat, and a gas station that requires you to leave your credit card with the cashier even though you're a paying RV park customer there for the week. We had no Verizon phone coverage in the park. The store has wifi, and with my Crane USB wifi antenna I was able to pick it up in the RV park. Fairly fast, 4 Mbp/s down, 1 Mbp/s up. The RV park is near the eastern trails. We visited the Boquillias Canyon trail, Ernst Tenaja, Hot Springs, Pine Canyon Trail, and the self-guided nature trail that takes you onto the bluff overseeing the river. It's a big park - be prepared to drive a lot. Do not try to drive down the dirt roads unless you have a high clearance vehicle.

We did not stay at this park, but wished we would have. I couldn't get reservations. This is just 30 yards from the river, so you're staying in a riparian ecosystem, but this is also close to Daniel's Ranch which is a birders' paradise (peregrine, vermillion flycatchers, even some ducks). We inspected the hook-ups and nice roomy sites, all paved. Sites 1-12 are on the river side, the rest of the sites are on the bird side. The river side does not have a view of the water, but of the growth by the river. This is a beautiful site and lots of wildlife, for this area. But you have to make reservations early.

Good place to stay to explore Big Bend NP. It is just an asphalt parking lot with hookups but gives you plenty of room and good hookups. People are friendly and there is a store for supplies. WiFi in store is good. No cell service. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

Large asphalt parking lot with FHU. Located on the Rio Grande River border. Good location to check out the National park. Everything is a distance and very primitive. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

This campground is run by the concessionaire and no rate discounts are available. It is basically a black top parking lot with hook ups and no shade. In moderate to cool weather when you don't need to run AC I'd go over to the Park Service campground and stay there. When it's hot, I'd consider the hook ups. We did not stay there, but we did check it out. The wi-fi is in the store as are the showers and rest rooms. Showers cost $1.50 for 5 mins. If you absolutely need a hook up then this is the only place in Big Bend National Park. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

This is a tight fit for some of the big rigs. We are 40 feet and got lucky that we had an easy spot to get into, but saw a poor man with a 35 foot motorhome struggle to get into a spot. This is basically a parking lot that has been retro fitted into a campground. Unless you really need power, I would go into the other campground and just run your generator. The wi-fi does not reach into the campsites. The sewer is also oddly configured. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

For a National Park campground this was severely disappointing. At $33 it is way overpriced, but when you are the only place offering AC, I guess they charge whatever they want. It is car park camping at its worst. Walmart is better. Hate to see the place when it is busy. No room between bays (we were one of only two in park). No table. No fire ring. Poorly located utility hookups (have to wonder if the designer has ever seen an RV). Operated, like so many other National Parks, by a concessionaire. We won't be back, at least at a time of year when one needs the AC. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Fifth Wheel.
