2 Parks near Terlingua, Texas

This park is an anomaly. As you drive up and into the park you think, how did this dump get such good reviews. Agree that the people are very friendly and helpful.
Site was level but close together. Utilities worked well. I got extended Verizon 3G service at the campground. Bathrooms and laundry clean. Water pressure low at 30 psi. I had just enough room to manuever my 40 foot fifth wheel. Wifi was just ok. My Wifi complaint is that they block a lot
of websites. Example, I wanted to check my bank and it wouldn't go through so good thing it wasn't urgent. Wifi was pretty quick for the basics email that it allowed
you to access. The park served it's purpose without the complaints of the other park a few miles away. - cwier

This quickly became a favorite park of ours. We pulled into BJ's just before dark on a dreary Saturday evening and the camp host came out to meet us and welcome us to the park. They showed us to our site and we discussed the best way for us to pull in and get situated.
The park itself is nothing fancy. It has good power, level/gravel sites and strong/stable WiFi. Restrooms are clean and well cared for. It has everything you need...plus a very nice smoker.
The people are what really make this park stand out. It has a very warm, friendly atmosphere that keeps many guests coming back year-after-year. This is a place to come for good friends and conversation around a campfire.
We stayed two weeks and wished we could have stayed longer. We'll definitely be back next chance we get. - 5nomads

I will concur with other comments by herbee in Jan 2016. We called and made a reservation, pay when you get there. Bud came out and met us as we pulled in and showed us to our site. Sites are large and level, you are in the desert, no grass, just gravel and dirt. Water pressure and electric good, ATT cell service 3 & 4 bar 3G. Park WIFI best I have had to date, very fast. Small Rv park with 2 showers/bathrooms in a mobile home as well as washer/dryer, kitchen and rec area, all were very clean. Bud had a campfire that night a bunch of campers sat around and socialized. Very clean, small and quiet park. Irene provided us with information on Big Bend NP and Ranch SP. Bud and Irene have recently sold and I believe the new owners should continue the nice atmosphere that we encountered here. Will definitely stay here if in the area again. - FTatcret2013

This place is probably your best option if you can't (or don't want) to get into one of the campgrounds at Big Bend National Park. It's a pretty typical RV park with the sites all in rows. They are fairly close together but not as bad as a lot of places. There are some back-in spots, but most seemed to be for the long-term residents. Most, if not all, of the sites for the travelers were pull-thrus and appeared to be long enough to accommodate big rigs with no problems. All the RV sites are FHU and the utilities worked fine although we didn't use the water hookup a lot because it was below freezing most nights. Didn't use the restroom or showers, but they looked clean, modern & bright. The laundry is large and spacious with lots of washers & dryers but they are kind of spendy ($1.75 for medium sized washers and $2.00 for dryers and not everything came out dry). The lighting is poor and there are no vending machines or bill changer so come prepared with laundry products and quarters. The biggest drawback is that the whole place is just dirt/sand with a little bit of gravel. It snowed the night we arrived, and when it started melting the following day it was a muddy, sticky mess. The best part of the place, though, is the café next door. They have good food, affordable prices, and fast service. The convenience store there is just that though with pretty much no "real" food available and a slim choice on a lot of things. I suggest you do your shopping before you arrive and come prepared. The wi-fi only worked sporadically and was very slow when it did. I had five bars of "extended 3G" service on Verizon though and it worked ok for data. If we get back this way I would definitely try to get into one of the park campgrounds, but failing that we'd stay here again, - Pdxjoanne

Good Sam discount rate for 3-night stay for a FHU, 50 amp, level dirt site. Moved from the first assigned site because we could not level the motorhome in the soft sandy soil. Verizon cell and MiFi reception limited to 3G and could not receive text messages. Park WiFi was only available at the store and restaurant. Satellite reception was good. This is a very adequate park considering the remote location, the low nightly rate, and the proximity to Big Bend National Park. - Dave51

This is an old park behind a motel near Terlingua. Many electrical pedestals are inoperable. We had to move twice to find one that worked. There was a whole line of 30 amp sites that had no service. Dirt park, few immature trees. - akadeadeye
