The spot we got (site 89) had some good shade and a nice grassy spot to set up the tent. The bathrooms and dumpster were close, but not too close. The restrooms aren't as nice as some of the State parks we've been to (no showers or hand soap). One thing to know about the river area is that it... More

We have camped in the Rio Grande Village Campground several times because it has full hookups. The area without hookups is more scenic, but we prefer the convenience of hookups. We have reservations in this campground this Spring (2016). We recommend this campground because it is the only one with hookups inside the NP.

Yes the full hook up facility is basically a parking lot but I'm glad I stayed there. Site backed up to a grassy strip with huge cottonwood trees. Convenient to store, showers, etc and also walking distance to Rio Grande. Having full hook ups was a blessing when it hit 93 degrees. Store manager was very friendly. Boquillas Canyon is... More

The full-hookup campground is an asphalt parking lot. It is HOT, but convenient to the store, showers, laundry, and spotty wifi. The NON-hookup campground has very convenient bathrooms, and stays cooler. Both are right for someone, just know what you are paying for.

We camped at the full hookup sites in the village. Which is basically a parking lot with hookups. The sites are small but who cares! The views were priceless. There are a few trials heads near the campgrounds. They are easy to access. The store has some food and they do sell gas and diesel. It's pricey but your in... More

As others have stated, you are off the grid. The sites are spaced apart nicely, however, when I go back to Big Bend someday, I will camp at Cottonwood. Many more hiking opportunities without driving so far.

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,...
