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.

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.

Less than 20 rigs in the park at the time we were there. Because of that, the front desk was not staffed when we arrived to check in, and we killed time for an hour. Nightly rate was $35, but $17.50 at Passport America rate. Cable was an extra fee, and only in a few select locations. Satellite and cell phone (Verizon) were good signals. The pool was cool, as it evidently is only heated by the sun. During the four days we stayed, we never saw anyone clean the pool. Thunderstorms left some areas with flash-floods, but usually cleared following a day or two of sunshine. Our site did have both picnic table and fire-ring. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby shopping was relegated to the "company store(s)" in Lajitas. We were in this area to see Presidio and Big Bend Nat'l. Park, and points between. Fuel (both gas & diesel) is available in Terlingua, and not a great deal of difference in price than in Alpine. There is also fuel available in the Park, as well as at Presidio. Other shopping is also available in Presidio.

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.
