I've been booking reservations for 51 various RV parks for my family's cross-country trip next year. (Completed 40 so far.) The woman from Rio Grande Village Campground was rude and unhelpful. Based upon my experience booking other national parks (as well as state parks and private campgrounds), this has been my only unpleasant experience. I read that the campground is... More

Nothing fancy here! We were off the grid! No cell phone, Internet, or TV channels! Out in the middle of nowhere! This is a huge beautiful park but we were very limited as to where we could go in a low to the ground vehicle! There were 3 roads we could go down to explore! If you go visit here... More

We have stayed in numerous national parks and this was the most unpleasant. It is entirely paved. There was some grass behind the lot that was a ditch so the grass was rather tall and the bugs were bad. We made reservations for 3 days and only stayed 1. The sewage connections on the ground are right by the door... More

First, I should say that isn't a review of the park itself, which is lovely (and huge) and full of wildflowers when we visited. This is a review of the Rio Grande campground from the perspective of a tenter who traveled by plane with limited gear, the store, which is run by a third party, and indirectly the other campgrounds,...

We stayed here for the full hookups. There was some shade to the back of the RV. Store nearby had wifi, snacks and laundry. We had no trouble driving to what we wanted to see during the day. The Stars were amazing.

We tent camped for 2 nights in early March (right before spring break). We were nervous about showing up to BBNP without a reservation and there were only 3 sites left in the whole park when we booked online. That's why we went with the Rio Grande Village campsite. Pros: Good spot for a toddler to run around - not... More

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
