While the experiences we had at Big Bend were so worthwhile, this particular camping option is very poor. For $36 a night, we were basically given a parking lot spot with about 25 other campers. Our particular site had a dump sewer that was held closed with a rock and had no picnic table. The restrooms were poorly attended with...

There is a camp store, laundromat and pay showers available on site. The setting is spectacular - brilliant sun rises and sun sets over the surrounding mountain ranges. Mexico is visible. A walk to the Rio Grande is easy. While the actual parking area for the full hook ups is unusual - a completely paved area with fairly tight spaces...

Of course Big Bend is a nature lover's delight and should be visited because of all it has to offer people of all ages. I am writing to specifically commend one of it's rangers, Lisa Harless at the Rio Grande Visitor's Center. On the day we visited, there were no camping sites available. She went out of her way to...

This was a good campground with decent facilities but it is located in a far corner of the park, making it quite far to get to other areas of the park. There isn't much choice though if you want to visit Big Bend and stay in the park if you are driving a larger RV. Some sites are available first...

We stayed in a motorhome. Pretty tight fit, but great location. Close to good hiking. Camp store is very well stocked and nice folks manning it. Super star gazing , no tv, or phone, it's great! Sites are level with good water and electricity & septic...everything you need.

The Rio Grande Village RV park was ok -- meaning that everything worked. There weren't picnic tables for every RV slot and there were only a few barbecue grills. The spaces were close together, but we luckily had one on the end. The store was convenient, with laundry facilities and shower facilities. The actual campground was close by. It is...

Big Bend is awesome. Its calm and majestic mountains set the mood for the entire stay. I enjoyed thoroughly as well as my family along with my 3 year old daughter. and yeah kids...nothing to worry about. Only thing i would say is pack enough food and water for the family. We camped at Rio grande.. its the best for...

Arrived at the Panther junction visitor center about 6:00 PM on a Saturday evening to find my desired campground, Chisos Basin, full. RGV was open so I drove the 23 miles there and found a campsite. Paying for the site was interesting: you pick up a small buff envelope at the information board at entrance to campground; drive around until...

We visited this campground to see if we wanted to pull our RV over. We are so glad we decided to stay back near Study Butte-Terlingua area. The RV park is a converted parking lot, although sufficient for an RV, it doesn't offer much else.

Wow is this a desolate campground. It is a parking lot, but does have electricity which is critical in June. Showers are pay, but fine. Didn't realize that some of the visitor centers shut down in the summer, but it does make sense - few people venture here in June.
