i stayed 5 nights at the village and one night at Cottonwood While at the village I spent one night tent camping in a remote site using my jeep. Although there was some rain and cloud cover the sky was spectacular when clear. The village has both non-generator sites and sites that allow generators. I stayed on the generator side... More

This is an 800,000 acre park and the only showers are at the Rio Grande campground. The camp store is well stocked and they do refill propane bottles. Don't forget your passport if you plan to go to Mexico but check what times and days the border crossing at Boquillas. There is also public Wi-Fi at the store.

I've stayed at Rio Grande Village RV, and the RV park in Lajitas. If your trip to BBNP is primarily going to consist of visiting the Chisos Mountains portion of the park, I recommend you stay at Lajitas instead - it's a few miles further away from the Chisos than RGV, but it's got better facilities. So - RGV RV... More

The full service part of Rio Grande Campground is next to the store in a parking lot. The site is not scenic itself but it has full service for an RV and is near the store and gas station. It is a convenient base camp to see the rest of the Big Bend area. It is close to the Hot... More

We went up the mountain s to the state park first. It was breathtakingly beautiful. But no electric or water. We went to Rio grande village rv campground and were totally disappointed. No trees, just campers in a row. No shade. WiFi was only at the store. Had to drive 50 miles to get anywhere a tourist goes.

Yes we were a little bit hot but, oh well. We had the whole campground to ourselves! We visited in August. It was peaceful and beautiful. Be sure to walk out on the trail pass the bridge and up the hill a bit to see the sunset over the Rio Grande River.

We stayed our first night in Big Bend at Rio Grande Village and really enjoyed our stay here. We went in late October and were pretty much the only ones in the entire campground. There were maybe 3 or 4 other trailers and no other tent campers that we saw. We found a great spot in the back, tucked away... More

Seeing every National Park is one of my "bucket list" goals, so getting to Big Bend National Park was a major accomplishment after nearly three years of planning. It should be said that this particular park is located in southwest Texas and is definitely NOT on the beaten path. Rio Grande Village is about 80 miles from the nearest town... More

we are staying in the full hook up camp. Yes, it is a paved parking lot but you get two spaces. we backed our 38 ft. coach in with no problem and parked our truck next to it with about 10 feet in between vehicles. Behind the coach is all trees, real grass for the dogs!! a little irrigation stream... More

This was the first time we camped at this location and we were not disappointed. The campground was not crowded which probably contributed to our overall good impression. Good bathrooms and separate sink for doing dishes. Pay showers, $1.50 for 5 minutes are available at the store 23 hours a day. The store has a good selection of groceries, camping... More
