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.

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.

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.

I can't find much negative to say about this park. The staff provided excellent service the week we were there. Created as part of a larger resort by someone with big dreams, it has everything one could want. Located between Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, and the ghost town of Terlingua, there is no shortage of diversions to keep you busy if you so desire. A local grocery carries most basic supplies, including wine and fresh cold cuts. The only negative things I noticed in the entire park was that some of the sites were more dirt than grass, and the Wi-Fi was weak in the fringe sites. The rate reflects a group discount as we were part of a rally held there. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This place is one of the nicest RV parks I've stayed in. The Staff are very friendly and suggest places to go and do. They were extremely helpful and accommodating and made our stay so much more fun. The bathrooms and showers were very clean as was the clubhouse. Each site was spacious with concrete pad and patio. Very scenic too. I will go back again.

I was the host of a recent rally at Maverick RV and I can't say enough about the level of service our group of 40 Casitas received during our week-long stay. The staff was attentive, informative, helpful and welcoming. As was mentioned by another reviewer, the Wi-Fi was spotty, sometimes running very, very slowly, but, they're aware of the problem and are working to fix it. I had no problems using my Verizon cell phone. This was our first rally at Maverick RV. Everyone had such a great time that we're planning to do it again in 2015. The campsite fee reflects our group rate. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We decided to get away from the fireworks on New Years. We spent four very enjoyable days at Maverick Ranch, drove through Big Bend Ranch State Park, and hiked in Big Bend National Park. While Maverick Ranch is a little further away from the national park, it is well worth the drive as nothing in the vicinity compares to it. It is well designed, well kept, and staffed by very conscientious people. The sites are long and there is plenty of room between sites. They've even managed to grow a little grass and some trees, despite the weather. The only negative, and it is nit-picking, but whoever designed the computer program for checking in needs to try doing it as a customer. Despite the best efforts of the staff, it is a slow and arduous process. We were shown to our site, and the check-in process was complete when they dropped by later to give us our receipt. Oh, almost forgot. On the Lajitas/Maverick Ranch website one is told to go to the Lajitas Resort to check in. Not so! Furthermore, finding the Lajitas Resort office is a challenge made more difficult if you're driving a 45' RV pulling a toad. The directions were terrible. None of that should be read to take away from the enjoyment of staying at a first class RV park. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects daily rate with Good Sam discount. Facility-wise, this is easily the nicest RV park in the area. All roads and sites are paved, which cuts down on the dust. My pull-thru site was long enough for my motorhome and tow vehicle and was level. A concrete "patio" with a picnic table was included. Utilities were well-placed and worked well, including the WiFi. Restrooms and showers were spotless. Also on-site are a nice community room and outdoor swimming pool. Staff was very friendly. I plan to return in the winter for a longer stay.

Perfect place to stay with big pull throughs, good Wi-Fi, great swimming pool, great views during the day and on dark nights. It was very quiet. They fight with the drought but still the few trees are green. Perfect to visit Big Bend Nat'l Park and do not forget to visit Big Bend State Park. It's a 'must do'. We will sure come back.
