This is a very nice RV park, level, clean, well maintained and very close to (in our opinion) the best entrance to Big Bend NP. Yes, the campground is mostly dirt but this is the desert so don't expect palm trees and waterfalls! Campsites are very roomy - no problems with being too close to your neighbors. The office manager was very nice to us, but seemed a little grumpy with the lady who was in line in front of us. Not sure what that was about. We look forward to staying here again. We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It's just a dusty gravel parking lot with hookups. But, if you want hookups, and can't get one of the few in Big Bend, it is certainly an adequate place to stay while visiting the area. Utilities worked fine. Location is good. Close to the west entrance to the national park, to Terlingua/Study Butte stores, restaurants(few), and most importantly the only gas station. No Verizon data service but voice was good. Park WiFi worked most of the time, better than most CG WiFi service. Sites are big enough and easy in/out. We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Can't say enough good things about this campground. Location is best we saw while we spent five days traveling the area. We saw other camp grounds, but no other professionally run camping sites were in the area. Would definitely stay here again. Clean, quiet, grass, trees, management and workers very helpful, restaurant, store, and gas on property--don't miss the great breakfast at restaurant.

To be clear, there is no resort here. Just a run down looking motel and a parking lot in back with some grass (not much) between gravel strips. But the place was fine for the amount of time we spent here. We came for the national park, not the campground. Very convenient to the NP, but I did stow my chairs & grill when we left for the day because we were the front site to the highway and the park has no security or even a choke point for incoming traffic. This place did what we needed it to do. Restrooms were run down and old looking, but clean enough to use. No Verizon 4G out here, but the campground WiFi worked well enough.

First the good stuff. The sites are wide with lots of room around them. WIFI works great. Staff is friendly and helpful. Gravel roads are in good shape. Now the not so good. Price is high, but they have the location, close to Big Bend NP. Cable TV is very poor, ours didn't work and our neighbor's barely did. Water hookup is a poorly constructed setup, and I'll bet they get broke a lot. Garbage dumpsters are a long way from most places in the park. Dirt in the sites is loose and easy to track inside; could use gravel in sites. Some sites are long some short with not enough room for the toad.

Rate reflects stay of at least 7 days. Pretty much a gravel lot, but great location in the center of Big Bend activities. Employees were both friendly and helpful. It is what it is, and what it is is about as good as it gets in this area. We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This Park was the worse that we have ever stayed at during any of our stays in Big Bend. The workers were friendly but the park was unkept, the restrooms were beyond filthy (stunk to high heaven and looked like they haven't been cleaned for two weeks) and the pads were unlevel. It rained when we were there and the caliche turned to mud and those that know caliche, it sticks and stays with you. Never again. We stayed here in a travel trailer.

We stayed a week at this campground as a base for day hiking in Big Bend NP. It was a very convenient location with friendly staff and great places to walk our dogs. Despite the large number of RVs and motorcycles coming and going, it was relatively quiet compared to other places we've stayed. Like all campgrounds in the area, it is in a low desert environment that is dry and dusty and lacking in vegetation and shade trees. We looked at the other campgrounds in the area during our travels and feel this is definitely the best of the bunch. Although the Internet connection was intermittent at times, we plan to stay here when we next visit Big Bend NP.

This was a great location for making daily visits to the National Park. After reading reviews on this forum we were prepared for the worst. We are writing a review for the first time, because our experience was so much better than the reviews. Yes, it was dusty and bare...we were in the desert. We found the staff to be very friendly and highly accommodating. Because of a phone number error in a magazine we had made a reservation at Rio Grande Village instead of here. Staff refunded out money and let us stay in Terlingua. We would definitely stay here again!! We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here a week, the rate reflects 7 days stay. The location is very good, it sits between the state and national parks, 80 miles south of Alpine and maybe 5 miles from the eclectic little town of Terlingua. The staff overall was helpful, there is a small store and a laundry within walking distance. It is very, very dusty and usually windy but it is, after all, the desert. The Wi-Fi worked sometimes, sometimes not. I went once or twice to the office to get them to reset it, though most of the staff did not know how to do that. Cable TV was terrible where we stayed (on the south end, same side as the stables) but supposedly it is better on the north-east side, I have no way of knowing. Additionally, there is a noisy power plant on the south east side of the park. There are a lot of Sheriff patrols and Border police that frequent the area, and it did seem safe while we were here. Really there isn't much in this area for alternatives if you have a very large unit like we have. There are steep grade hills east and west of this park. I would stay here again were I to return to Big Bend. PS: Beware of snakes at night, not usually a problem during the day however.

The park is run down with dying trees and vegetation. Only a few sites have limited shade trees. The check in staff was not very friendly. The cable tv and WiFi did work. I paid $30 a night for a site with 50 amp service. We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park had awful customer service. When I checked in I discovered that I would also have to actually "check out" when we left. I had questions/issues with that because we sometimes decide to leave very early or even very late at night. After some back and forth with the woman at the desk I was finally allowed to "check out" as soon as I checked in. Her manner was very condescending, and I did not appreciate being talked to that way. The wi-fi at this park never worked for us even when I sat on the porch right in front of the office. The restrooms looked like they had been remodeled in the last 10 years and were fairly clean, but one of them had a loose faucet in the shower with a big hole. Also, there were no picnic tables at the popup sites and nowhere nearby. I would not stay here again. We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Friendly staff let us pick our site. Dusty and dirty, but it is the desert. Terlingua is an interesting place. Locals are a strange assortment of dropouts and retirees, but everybody was very friendly and loved living the hardscrabble existence in the desert. Local stores can provide basic needs. Cable in campground didn't work, and Wi-fi was in and out. Lots of snowbirds and long term residents. Campground could be a little cleaner. We looked at other campgrounds in Terlingua, and this one was probably the best. Loved hiking in the Chisos Mountains, 4 wheeling and driving around Big Bend National Park. Probably would not stay here again. We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a bare basic park. Gravel road and sites. Very dusty. Dogs not picked up after. Cable was okay. The office tried to put us in pull throughs that did not even accommodate the rig, much less the tow vehicle. Went to back in sites that had aggressive entrance into the lot that causes the mud flap to bury in sand if you do not lift it. Had to angle the rig into the site to get over the the hump.

Nice place, friendly staff and sites were fine although dirt, they were level. Our only complaint was that you had to pay $2.00 to take a shower in their restrooms, which we didn't do. This is a convenient RV park to Big Bend National Park and the price was good for full hookups. Wi-Fi was a little slow and cable TV was fine. We didn't use any of the other facilities within close proximity, i.e., cafe, riding stables, laundry, etc. We camped at Big Bend Resort and Adventures RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
