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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

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. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to drive to Presidio, the drive is spectacular. Terlingua is worth a visit and The Starlight Cafe had excellent food.

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. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

This is probably the best RV facility in the Big Bend NP area. FHU sites and facilities include clean showers and clubhouse with pool. We were here in January so most things in the resort were closed. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The golf course Black Jacks Crossing was great, but other than that, there was not much to do.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Tips for other Campers:

The town has a set of local trails that are worth visiting if you don't want to drive to one of the parks.

Stayed 5 nights and would stay here again. Some posted about stickers and we found none. Grass was mowed while we were there and everything else was in great shape to include picnic tables. People need to understand this park is in a desert and you will not have abundance of grass but we did have grass over half of site. All utilities worked as expected. Cable and Wifi worked very good. Cable is analog. Beautiful mountain view out front windshield of MH. Rate shown includes tax. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Beautiful drive to Presidio with Rio Grande beside the road much of the way. Enjoy Big Bend but check out this drive. Maverick Ranch was a great base camp for all there is to see in this huge area. Well stocked General Store outside campground.

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.
