When we visited six years ago this campground and its grounds were immaculate, sadly this place is now looking a little neglected. It's fairly well maintained, and staff are still helpful at check in. Roads are paved as was our site, not overly spacious but it was level and a pull through and we parked our towed behind our RV, big rig access was good. There were few folk there, so it was very quiet with plenty of privacy. A few trees and some patchy grass, no barbecue and no picnic table, although some sites did have a picnic table. The pool was lovely and the desert setting very pretty and we had wonderful views of the mountains from our RV. The laundry was clean with plenty of washers and dryers, but at $2 a load it was expensive. Never once during our 4 day stay were the bathrooms checked or cleaned, a very bad oversight! Pet friendly but no dog walk, doggie bags or disposal station. A small general store with deli is just up the road which was handy but very expensive. No WiFi but cell was okay. Plenty of wonderful sightseeing in the area, but good places to eat are few and far between. We would stay here again, while not perfect it's the best choice for the area. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Boy I sure wish they would give you something slightly less than satisfactory but not 'bad' per se. The camp ground had a lot of straggley weeds with stickers that got stuck in our small dogs underbellies and tails. The camp sights varied from very nice to not so much. It rained hard one night and the next day was a big mud hole right outside our camper, daughter lost a flip flop in it and feet were covered in mud. Bathrooms were not dirty but not clean either, toilets had hard water deposit (white vinegar can fix that) and floors were not swept the entire 4 days we were there (same piece of paper was on the floor the whole time, I finally picked it up). Pool was nice. Office was nice, people were nice. This is part of a 5 star golf resort, they should remove all of the weeds and install the decorative small gravel to alleviate mud problems. We did not have a picnic table at our sight and had to drag one over, we also did not have a fire pit when others did. Beautiful views as long as u were not close to the bathrooms. Look at their map before you book so you can pick a good spot. Park was almost empty so we should have moved to another spot but is a pain when you are already hooked up. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is near Big Bend if you are not there to play golf. Awesome Ntl Park. Should take about 3 days to see it, that is what it took us. Tried to go to Presidio but highway is VERY twisting and I was car sick. Worth it if you can go though, beautiful scenery. Don't bother with Terlingua 'Ghost Town' nothing there. Their idea of 'ruins' is old building from the '20s (1920 that is) Ha, my house was built in 1928. Nothing else much to see there.

Nicest campground bay far in the Big Bend area. Stayed here for 5 days in April 2015. Sites were mostly level and good sized. Our site had picnic table and fire pit (not all sites had picnic tables). Thought we had booked a site with cable, but did not and had to use satellite which worked fine. Easy access to big Bend and Presideo TX

Used the clubhouse with a group and it was very nice and clean. Pool was clean but too cold to use. Laundry room available but expensive ($2 for wash and $2 for dryer-all clothes dried for the initial $2). All resort activities, including a small general store, can be charged to our bill. There are some back in/pull in sites looking over the canyon/mountain ridge that are very nice.

9 PM exterior lights out policy which makes great night sky viewing (small campfires are allowed).

Recommend you get a site where you face north so you don't have the afternoon sun on you.

Warning high winds can occur at any time. Don't leave awnings out if you leave your site for any period of time. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Big Bend entrance is about 25 miles from campground. Gas up in Alpine before heading south. Though gas is available it is MUCH cheaper in Alpine (or Marathon)

Stayed two nights to see the area. Area is exceptionally dry and was hot the days we were there. Park is large with paved roads and sites. Not a lot of people but that is a function of location. The sites are opposite so my drivers side was quite close (8 ft) from neighbors driver side, but lots of room on the passenger side. If you are travelling with another party, then getting two sites (passenger side facing) will give lots of room. The 17 miles out from Terilingua seems to take a while, especially after a day of driving. The RV park is a part of the big resort, but we didn't use any of the resort facilities or golf. Nice enough park for the area, but if there to see Big Bend, I'd probably stay in Terilingua and use the Toad to drive into the park or take the scenic drive on TX 170. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a week, while visiting Big Bend N.P. Campground could use some TLC, but think it is best choice for area. Can't remember site we were in, but was a little close to neighbors on one side. Sites to the left from office seem to be more spacious. Utilities were good, and voltage was steady 120 volts. Pooled look nice, but didn't use. Resort golf course looked first rate, but wanted $125 per round. Also, went to resort bar for a drink one evening....first time I have paid $6 for a Bud Light (and last). We would stay here again. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Starlight Theater/Restaurant in Terlingua, food and service good, and the locals show up in late afternoon for a beer on the porch.

Take a trip across the border to Boquillas del Carmen. Don't forget your passport.

Nice campground near "Black Jack Crossing" (as in Black Jack Pershing). Had a couple of issues though. There had been heavy rain prior to our arrival and our site was very muddy. The clubhouse was partly closed due to bees. Can't blame the bees but the mud issue needs to be addressed. They warned us that the wind can come up quickly so don't leave the canopies out. One neighbor didn't heed that advice and had his torn from his trailer. At least the staff helped him remove it so he could get it fixed. Overall the campground is a bit "touristy". In the right circumstances it could be rated higher. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Near Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park.

This was our first trip to Big Bend, and I am so glad we stayed at Maverick Ranch. The park has a nice, open feel with large sites and level concrete pads. Many of the pull-through sites are arranged in alternating directions, which is perfect if you're traveling with someone else. Even if you're not, I thought the setup really encouraged socializing with your neighbors.

The views are beautiful from the RV park, and there are short hiking trails right next to the park. The staff was friendly and very attentive. Also, the resort restaurant across the street had good food and amazing views. We will stay here again when we come back. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed this park. The staff were helpful and friendly, the park was clean, and all hookups worked well. This park is very convenient for visiting Big Bend Ranch State Park, golfing at the resort's course (looks beautiful - I didn't play), and driving along the Rio Grande (amazing views). It's a bit of a drive into the national park, but we didn't mind. We will definitely be staying here again. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Lajitas is about an hour west of Big Bend National Park and about 20 minutes from Terlingua. Big Bend Ranch State Park entrance is only about 5 minutes away. Lajitas was bought by a resort so it really isn't a town. It has a couple of restaurants, boutique shops, general store, small gas station, and a golf course. Don't expect to find a grocery store nearby. We had a pretty large site since we were at the end of a row. The other spaces look large but you do share camping sides with your neighbor. The roads inside the park are wide an easy to maneuver. This is a dark night area so they ask all outside lights are turned off by 9pm.

Wifi was adequate. There is no ATT or Verizon, only roaming available.

The club house has a nice community room, tv area, and clean bathrooms. The swimming pool looked nice and clean but as it was december, we did not try it. The office staff is friendly and very helpful. The campers are also very friendly. The RV Park is clean and feels very open. There is not a lot of trees but it may get pretty hot in the summer. We did see a coyote and javelina while we were here.

We would stay here again. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a gravel road behind the park that leads to a housing development area which is great for walking dogs. The tent area is also another great spot for walking the dogs. There are also trails that lead to the butte nearby if you want to do a little hiking. The Big Bend Ranch State Park allows dogs on trails only leading away from the state park. Trails heading towards the Rio Grande are ok.

Great park hosts. Wide open spaces with beautiful views in the surrounding areas. There are only one or two rows that offer cable TV. The main guest room is very nice - beautiful pool area. The hotel amenities - i.e., shops, etc. - were very limited - only two shops in the complex. Beautiful golf course where you can rent a cart even if you don't golf and ride the course. Long way off the beaten path, but a beautiful place to stay. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Definitely the nicest RV park in the area. Glad we decided to stay here while visiting Big Bend. The pool was very refreshing since it was very warm this time of year. We stayed in the off season, so we were able to pick our site. The Wi-Fi was slo/intermittent on my phone and iPad but worked fine on my laptop. My only recommendation is a fenced dog park. The RV parks closer to Big Bend National Park don't have a pool and are basically areas with dirt. This park had paved roads/sites with grass. Also very convenient to Big Bend Ranch State Park. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly staff. We chose a wide and long pull-thru. Really nice private lav/toilet/shower rooms. Pool. Full access to all Lajitas Resort facilities(trails, golf course, riding stables, etc). We do not pull a towed, but were able to rent a Jeep from the Resort for the day to tour Big Bend National Park. Jeep rental rate is $99/day with 100 free miles. Not cheap, but we preferred seeing Big Bend this way instead of sitting on a local tour company's shuttle van. Being our first trip to this area, we only spent two nights. We are now considering coming back to spend a month (only $425) next winter. Tons of things to do in the area, IF you like spending time outdoors in the desert (which my wife and I do). Contrary to reports on some websites, Maverick Ranch does accept advance reservations over the phone. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

The nicest RV park in the Big Bend area. Large pull-thru sites with plenty of space between. Driveway and sites are all paved. Staff is very friendly. Musical performances 3 nights a week by the Whitfords added to the enjoyment of my stay. The RV park manager even showed up one evening after music with homemade ice cream for everyone. The only downside for me was the WiFi, which often slowed to a crawl in the evening. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

The sites are a generous size and there is lots of room between each of them. It was a nice modern park and the Wi-Fi worked well while we were there. There are several things about it that we were not impressed with however. It costs $2.00 for washers & dryers if you need to do laundry which is more than we have ever paid at an RV park. There is no propane on site. Pack enough food to last for your entire trip! I needed some bread part way through and had to pay $5.20 for a loaf at the general store. Diesel fuel was $4.26/gallon. It was very hot during the day and the pool was freezing so we were unable to use it. If you go there, make sure you stop at the little pizza restaurant just outside Terlingua. I can't remember the name but it is on the left hand side as you leave Terlingua, headed for Lajitas. Don't eat at the Lajitas Resort!! The food isn't all that great and it's over priced. If you're a golfer, be prepared to pay $129.00 green fees to play 18 holes. The Big Bend area is quite spectacular and worth the trip but Lajitas Maverick RV Park could be better. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
