Excellent RV park. Large spaces with excellent hookups. Club house and pool nice and clean. This part of a larger resort with amenities extended to those staying at Maverick Ranch. Things to be aware of: (A) you are in the desert. (B) Try to arrange a site that has your door facing east to avoid afternoon sun. (C) wind comes up very fast. Do not leave awnings out unattended. (D) This is a dark community. Outside lights off at 9:00 pm, enjoy the stars they are great.
WI-FI is good, cable is acceptable. This is by far the nicest RV park usable for visiting Big Bend Parks. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The previous May 2016 review covers most of the details very well. Each site is gravel with a picnic table located on a paved pad. WiFi worked much of the time with the park less than 25% occupied, important as neither Verizon nor AT&T had a usable signal at the park. The pool was nice, though the water was not clear during our stay. Strongly recommend that you have food supplies before your arrival as there is very limited shopping available in Lajitas, the park appearing to be essentially the only commercial activity in this tiny town. It's about 30 miles east to the Big Bend National Park main visitors center. Also note that there is no crossing into Mexico at Lajitas. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

While this is an RV park in the desert and pretty stark it is still nicely laid out and maintained so that every site has a good view of the mountains. Each site has a concrete pad and many have picnic tables. Campers are asked to respect "Dark Sky" policy after 9PM at night and turn off outside lights so that everyone can enjoy the spectacular night skies. Big clean bathrooms and showers and a large laundry. The whole Lajitas Resort is pretty impressive. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Definitely play golf at Black Jack's Crossing just up the street. A spectacular Lanny Watkins designed course. Use this RV park as a base while visiting Big Bend State Park. Spend time in Terlingua. Great Pizza at the Long Draw.

This is a good place to stay if you are going to Big Bend NP. It's a haul up to the park, but then everything in that area is a ways away from everything else. There is both regular and diesel fuel available at the General Store, but I fueled up at Alpine before going south to the campground. There is no campground map on the website, but they are suppose to be working on it. The sites are situated with the utilities between two sites, so you alternate nose to tail. If I would have known, I would have asked for a site that pulls in so your nose is pointing North-East. Much better for the patio side to have the shade late in the day. The wind is incredible, so opening your patio awning is not an option until the winds die down. The pool isn't heated and when we were there, the water temp would turn your ankles blue after a few minutes. They cater to lots of rallies and the parking spots on the North side are used for those rigs. Limited number of sites with cable TV access. The WiFi was okay, but slow depending on the number of users. Very limited cell service in most of the area, including the NP. We often only had 1 or 2 dots on our Verizon service. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Big Bend NP is the big attraction. Took us three full days to see all the park. The Lajitas Golf Resort and Spa is very nice. We did the Starlight Evening Dinner. Expensive ($150 pp) but very nice. The drive up to Presidio was very scenic, especially the first 20 miles out of Lajitas. Had lunch at the El Patio restaurant in Presidio. Went across the border to MEX, but not much going on and never did find the "tourist area."

Maverick Ranch RV Park is a very nice private RV park in Lajitas, Texas. Sites are generous. All sites full hookup. Request a site with a north or east facing door due to the intense afternoon sun. They have a large pool and club house. The property also has a hotel, restaurant, golf course and gun range. Nicest park in area to visit Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park. We will definitely stay here again. We were in site 45. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed a week here, exploring Big Bend NP and Big Bend Ranch SP. This was a great home base location for both parks. The park is well laid out, with spacious sites. Utilities worked well, we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite, and we had decent Verizon cell service. Stock up with groceries before you come, as the local markets are expensive. (Cottonwood Market is by far the best......good selection, and the most reasonably priced.) The campground has a pool and a clubhouse. We enjoyed our stay here, and would return if in the area. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

RV Park is part of the Lajitas Golf &Spa resort across the street. All amenities of the resort are available to RVers. However, the RV park has its own meeting and lounge building with laundry, showers, pool, and grill facilities. Centrally located to visit Big Bend NP and all other areas. Make sure door and awning face the east to avoid afternoon sun. This will also give you a front door view of the best sunsets and sunrises. All outside lights must be off by 9PM (dark sky) so that everyone can view the night sky. Resort will provide golf cart shuttle from across the street if needed and requested. Excellent full service restaurant at resort but don't miss Starlight Theater at Ghost Town just up the road toward Big Ben NP. You are in desert so no shade and dirt. Unique in that your neighbor may pull in opposite from your direction so that you do not step over his sewer hoses when you open your door. Stayed 3 nights but will be back. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I hate to be a downer but, don't be fooled by the word "resort". It's associated with the resort and hotel across the street from the RV park. That is about the extent of it. Site was a concrete slab and level. That was good. Between sites was what was suppose to be grass. It was mostly dirt. The pool and clubhouse were very nice as was the laundry facility. This was 9 miles further away from Big Bend entrance and I didn't feel it was worth the extra drive. Barely satisfactory. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the place to stay while visiting Big Bend. Sites are well laid out so even though they are close you feel like you have more space. There is no cell service, limited cable and the wifi was only OK. The bathrooms and laundry are nice and club house was great. The pool was opened but too weather was too cold. We were there for SuperBowl and they had a gathering in the club house. We stayed about a week. We enjoyed the hiking on the resort trails. No dogs are allowed on the trails in the park but at the resort they are allowed on the trails. We did take advantage of the resort's workout room and their bar & grille.

This is a nice park. The sites are level and long. Some sites have a cement patio. All the services worked great. There is a small market/deli/fuel store with in walking distance. It is a southwest park so landscape is limited. The people are very friendly, it has both long term (winter) and short term guest. The privilege's of the resort extend to the guest at the RV park. It is a little drive to the entrance to the national park (20 miles), but we felt it was worth staying at this park. It is very quite and peaceful, we really enjoyed the stay.

Staff and everyone is quite friendly here in the park and at the resort. Customer service is important. Nice level sites with fire rings and picnic tables. Full hook-ups. Wifi is slow and cell service depends on your carrier, but it's okay. Pool and clubhouse are beautiful, and laundry room was immaculate. If I were coming to Big Bend again, I would base myself here. You are not far from the western entrance to the park, tours are available from here and you have all the amenities. We had stayed 2 days in the Rio Village, no hook-up site within the park, you will be driving to trails either way, so this park is a much better venue.

Tips for other Campers:

When choosing your site, if you have a motorhome, you may want to chose a pull in site that faces the mountains on the outer rim of the park. Take advantage of the resort activities...Zipline, horse back riding and shooting or golf. You must call to get a reservation.

We camped here over the New Year as we've done before. Must say many more folks have found it since we stayed here two years ago. The campground is large, clean, well-maintained and very comfortable. There is much to do if you enjoy national and state parks and the RV park is conveniently located between the two. The RV park is part of the Lajitas Golf Resort, and as such there is much to do at the resort. In addition to the above, Terlingua is an interesting stop, and Presidio, Texas, on the west side of Big Bend State Park, has numerous restaurants and other attractions. Also, if you need more than a couple of items from a grocery store, we recommend you Porter's Thriftway in Presidio. It is a bit of a drive, but a very scenic one. It is extremely well stocked and the prices were quite a surprise - very reasonable. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

As stated above, we recommend hiking many of the trails in both Big Bend parks. We recommend the drive to Presidio as it parallels the Rio Grande and is quite scenic. Porter's Thriftway in Presidio is an excellent source of supplies at a very moderate price.

I am giving this park a 10 comparing it to other parks in the area, not nation wide. To have a facility like this in the area is excellent. The fact that it is paved is a big bonus. Remember, you are in the desert 80 miles from the nearest real town, Alpine. Sites are mostly level, long, paved and all utilities worked well. All sites have a paved or rock patio, some have fire rings and picnic tables. It is the remoteness of the area that makes it special. The park is part of a resort that has an excellent golf course and bar and restaurant. Also a fitness room and gift shop. Again, comparing it to the other parks in the area, it is a 10. If you can't relax here, you just don't get it. Cell service on Sprint was spotty. Wifi worked well if your site is near the office, and our's was. They have a handful of cable channels. Graded dirt roads to walk the dog right from the park. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

We had cocktails at the resort bar outside. Restaurant has the best 14.00 burger I have had. Hit the Terlingua Trading post porch around sunset. La Kiva for drinks. Starlight Theater adjacent to the porch. Road biking is good. Mountain biking in the resort and the State Park is a blast. There is a well stocked market in Terlingua on Hwy 118. Tip. When you get here, wind down and relax. This is West Texas. Go with the flow and you will have a great time.

The park was beautiful. We were in a back in site at the back of the park with great views of the surrounding countryside. The park was quiet and people were friendly. The lots were level and there were a large number of pull thru sites. It was convenient to both the state (less then 10 mins) and national parks (30-45 mins). They had a nice pool area. The WiFi was spotty but the resort has great WiFi that you can use. I would definitely visit again. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.
