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...

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.

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...

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...

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.
