The staff in the office were very friendly during the reservation and check in process. They did not have a site that would accommodate our length with our enclosed trailer attached but allowed us to park it in a nearby site that was out of order. Sites are dirt and there is little grass but they are level Very good place to stay for visiting the park. Nothing fancy but we would return. - Darcan

Gravel and dirt campground, typical for the area, can be dusty at times. Wifi good in gameroom but usually cannot use in the CG. Water pressure very low. Very convienent to the National Park, great views and sunsets from the CG. Second time I have stayed here. I found the staff to be helpful and accomodating. There was no picnic table at our site and the staff got one to me within a short time. I did not use restrooms. - susy1313

We stayed two nights here. The bathrooms are dank and unappealing. The showers are $2.00 for 6 minutes. I refused to use the facilities.
The water faucet to a neighboring site had been broken off by another RVer a week earlier; he took the site we were assigned and reported it to the office, but they put just a shut-off valve on it, not another faucet. Because he was in our site, we had to futz about for another site. They assigned that site again to another RVer, who also complained to the office and had to move to another site.
Although some sites had a picnic table, ours did not.
Wi-Fi is available -- at the cafe, but not at the sites. Cell service is spotty.
The cafe food was mediocre. - Oregon5er

Thought this was a great little RV park in the desert. This is a basic campground with everything you need-power, water, laundry, we are minimalists and don't need a whole lot to make us happy. We were in the new section with 30amp power, (we think going to 50 amp when finished) back in site. Plenty of room. No actual pad site yet as it is a work in progress, but we put out our mat on the dirt and it was just fine. There are a few snowbirds wintering here and all were lovely and helpful. Had a potluck get together on the weekend which was fun. They shared great information on hikes in the area as well as Big Bend. Wifi was good. Verizon was 3g and worked fine. They try to keep the park with minimal lighting at night for the stars. We had a full moon, so we didn't get to enjoy that part. Everyone was friendly, we ended up staying an extra day. Will return, hopefully during a new moon. - luv2gowalkabout

Very small park in the desert so expect dust and cactus. Very friendly staff. Laundry room very small. Okay for overnight while checking out scenic Big Bend National Park. No discounts available and price seems high. Nice large sites with FHU. - Tricia M.

Stayed 3 nights. Only saw management once, and that was to pay the bill. I am surprised at all the reviews praising customer service. Hookups and wifi worked well. No cable. Verizon signal was good. The park was like a very generously spaced parking lot. Don't think I'd return. - BosRv

Spent 3 nights at Maverick Ranch RV Park while exploring the surrounding area and Big Bend National Park. (Approx. 20 miles to the National Park entrance/50 miles to the Panther Junction Visitor's Center located near the center of Big Bend National Park). Paved roads within the rv park along with widely-spaced, level, paved sites. Our site was long enough for our 45' coach and tow. Picnic table and fire ring at each site. Very nice clubhouse and swimming pool area. Territorial views of surrounding rock hillsides; beautiful starry skies at night. The town of Lajitas has a general store which carries basic necessities.
Although we did not do so, guests of the RV Park are invited to visit and use the amenities of the nearby Lajitas Golf Resort and Lanny Wadkin's designed golf course (Black Jack's Crossing), which are located just a block down the highway. - HRTravelers

The pool has a solar heater but is turned off. I asked why and did not get an answer. This is the most miss managed park I have ever been in. Been traveling via travel trailers since 1979. People have to change site very frequently one guy moved 5 times while I was here. Was the campground full NO. Repair gut for campground has to fix what he can without parts. Walls falling down in pool area. . - Rangerdave549

Had high hopes for this park. Nothing "resort" about it. Discovered that the pool was not heated. Big disappointment. Found out the solar heating has not functioned for some time. Really wish we were informed when reservation was made. Found the employees to be aloof. No phone service and wi-fi unreliable. Very windy and the power went out often. We really wanted to like this place, but can't. - RVNavigator

This is a dry, no generator camp. Sites are level but few can handle rigs over 30'. Ranger presence was very noticeable in a good way. Birds and wildlife are abundant in the park. We found this park to be awesome. - illini777

Cottonwood Campground is the western, smaller of the two campgrounds on the Rio Grande River. It is in a barbed wire enclosure in a mesquite thicket. It is a level grassy area with a number of large cottonwood trees. Many, but not all, camp sites have shade. There is a Nat'l Park Visitors Center and a small store nearby, where one can get ice and sodas. The pit toilets are very clean. There is a single "Filtered Water" spigot near the entrance to the campground. There are a number of other water spigots distributed around the campground with signs reading "Non-potable Water". The Ranger said the water was actually safe to drink from these spigots, but tastes bad. Each of the camp sites has its own "bear box". There is no electric, no sewer and no dump. The road in the campground is gravel and dusty when people drive too fast. In the spring, Cottonwood Campground is a birding hot spot with many bird watchers coming through during the day. - Teardrop11

Very pleasant, very quiet campground. Pretty shade trees, Rio Grande flows by. No dump station, no generator use. - mockturtle

The National Park Service advises trailers up to only 20 feet and RVs only up to 24 feet. In reality, there are very few sites that will accommodate either. The back-in sites look to be about 15-16 feet. The pull out sites are really nothing more than a wide spot in the road - and in some cases, not all that wide. This is really a tent campground - and the tent sites are pretty good. The restrooms are clean but no showers and only cold water in the sinks. There is a water shortage and the Park Service asks that people limit themselves to 5 gallons of water per person per day. This is an CCC-era National Park campground, so there is no electric and no sewer. Each of the camp sites has its own "bear box". There is a small store up the hill with basics like ice, bread and soda. Big Bend National Park is pretty far from just about everything so the people that come here seem to be friendly and responsible campers, no unreasonable noise and respectful all around. - Teardrop11

Beautiful setting. The road into the campground was steep in places with severe switchbacks toward the southern end and is not recommended for RVs longer than 24 ft. The sites were mostly short and not level. The dump station was under construction and not usable. Would have stayed longer but it was so very cold I headed south to Castolon. - mockturtle

Rate is full rate for dry camping. Senior Pass is $7 per night. Excellent tent campground. Fair campground for small pop-ups, travel trailers and motorhomes. Pull-through sites are really just parking along wide spot in road. Road side slides may not work. Small rigs only. Though some up to 30' will fit a few spots - they won't be level. No real level RV parking anywhere in campground. There are no showers available at any NPS campground in Big Bend NP. Only pay showers at Rio Grande Village. The scenery, and cooler weather in summer, makes Chisos Basin worth a visit. - PawPaw
