Best place for RVs to stay at Big Bend
Big Bend is a remote, Texas-sized huge National Park that will amaze you with its gorgeous canyons, river, mountains and deserts. Of the 4 campgrounds within the park boundaries, we found the Rio Grande Village (non-hookup) campground the best for RV camping. The sites in the loops where generators are allowed are well-sized and level with plentiful shade from mesquite and cottonwood trees throughout the campground. A few sites can accommodate big rigs up to 45', but like most national park campgrounds, its loops were really never designed for rigs that large so its most-ideal for rigs under 35 feet. Note that the loops here that prohibit generator use are really meant for tents, small campers, and vans as most of these sites have low clearance tree cover and smaller pads.
There are flush toilets and fresh water spigots throughout the campground, and a nice-sized free dump station with fresh water nearby. There is a concessionaire about a mile away that offers free Wi-Fi, a camp store, laundry, pay showers, propane, and gas. They also have a full hookup campground here, but sites are essentially a parking lot, and more expensive. Not as pretty as the non-hookup campground, but ok in a pinch.
The Rio Grande Village Nature Trail at the non-hookup campground is not to be missed! Outstanding 360-degree panoramic views of the campground and river below, as well as Mexico's Sierra del Carmen mountains.
