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 camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Having no other choice for full hook-ups inside of Big Bend, this park was adequate. The man in the office was quite pleasant. The laundry facility was functional. The small grocery store was a bonus (but at a price!) I had a strong Wi-Fi signal from my site (which was closer to the office/store than most of the other sites.) Keep in mind, there is no cellular service here. There is plenty of open space for a stroll, hike, or picnic. The cons: There were very few picnic tables; I counted only 3 between all 25 sites, and they were quickly commandeered. The RV park is in the eastern-most spot of Big Bend, so it does not make an ideal home base unless you have several days to explore. Otherwise, you might want to re-position after a couple of days to Study-Butte (if you require hook-ups). Finally, there were no posted check-in procedures for late arrivals... at least, none that I or other RVers could find. Despite a few nitpicks, I'd stay here again. If I had a quiet generator, I'd probably consider Chisos for a couple of days instead. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

The best thing I can say about this campground is it has electric hookups. The view of the surrounding park is great, but otherwise this is just a parking lot with hookups. Daytime temperatures were in the 100's so we wanted the electricity. We were there in the beginning of the off season, and the lot wasn't too full, but it was still a challenge to back in and get parked. I don't know how a big rig could do it in the busy time of year (winter). The NPS campground behind the store is beautiful, and we would stay there next time if possible. It was worth the trip to see Big Bend, but we would not stay here again. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Fifth Wheel.

My rating is for the RV parking lot, not Big Bend Park. Rio Grande Village is a blacktop parking lot that gets extremely hot! The heat radiates up off the parking lot. There is no shade in the parking lot. The sewer hookup was a bit strange, just a tube in a concrete bowl. The power was good, the water was fine. Big Bend is beautiful so we were happy to put up with the poor RV parking lot. The rangers at the park were very unfriendly. I did not see ranger programs listed anywhere and was disappointed. You cannot get cell phone service so plan on using a pay phone. You can get Wi-Fi if you can stand the heat to sit at a picnic table at the office. There are no picnic tables for campers. Javelinas and coyotes walk right through the camp parking lot so watch your dogs! The views are spectacular. Wish the rangers had been nicer and had some programs like they have in other National Parks. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

We liked this park, but we are city slickers. We were on a black topped area so it was easier to keep the motorhome clean. Staff was friendly. No cell service. Wi-Fi at store worked on and off at our site. We saw coyotes and road runners near our campsite. Heard the coyotes howling during the night. No TV reception. We would camp here again if in the area. Big Bend is a nice remote National Park. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

Loved this park! Being in the national park it is quiet and in a lovely setting. Our site was in the row that backed into a lot of trees; behind us was a paved road leading to a picnic area with more grass and trees. The campground rentals are staffed by the Rio Grande Village Store clerks; ours was very friendly and accommodating. He did his best to space us all out so that no one was squeezed by a neighbor.

When we arrived after a long day of driving, we were met at the counter by a man that stated the price was $32.00/night and no discounts. There was one Class C rig in the campground, if you want to call it that. It's a blacktop parking lot with hookups. Very unattractive, unfriendly place. They would rather be empty and make no money than reduce their price. We left and did not stay here. We ended up in Lajitas.
