Question RV Park in LaJitas, TX

Has anyone ever stayed at the Maverick Ranch RV Park in LaJitas, TX? We are going into Big Bend National Park in a couple of days and would like to stay at this park but don't know anything about it. Of course all the reviews seem good but as we all know those don't always turn out to be what they say they are.....getting very skeptical

Any information positive or negative is greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Teresa

My daughter and I are going there in the spring with Indian Princesses. I'm anxious to hear about it too.

I've been told that a fun thing to do is rent a golf cart from the golf course and ride around the course. The view is supposed to be awesome.

stayed there two weeks this last March. Nice park. About 9 miles fro West entrance to Big Bend. The best park outside Big Bend to see the park. Inside, the Natl park CG at Cottonwood Creek (I think it is called) is nice, as is the campground at altitude in the park center (5400', so it is cold during the winter months). The state park on the other side of Lajitas is beautiful as well.

The big downside...restaurant worth a darn are few. Take your groceries with you as there is no major chain within 75 miles. You need to bring with you what you want or need.

We always stay IN the park at Rio Grande Village. It has two spots for RVs - one with full hookups. The sites are all in a row with a grassy area behind. It is paved. The regular campground - which can accommodate 40' RVs - has no hookups but has bigger areas around the sites. There is a dump station and water fill. Both are in a very scenic area of the national park. We just figure that if you're going to a national park it's gives you a better experience to actually stay in the park rather than outside the park. Have a good trip!

I'd agree with the campground in the valley, but the one up at elevation can get cold. If you can't get in there, the Lajitas Resort is a good alternative.

Also, take care with your awnings. The wind can change directions and/or come up to 20-25 mph at the snap of your fingers.

Great sunsets in the clean clear air.

Big Bend Campgrounds:

Rio Grande Village - two campgrounds next to each other - full hookups or dry camping. Both can accommodate up to a 40' RV, allows generators

Chisos - has a trailer limit of around 26-28' to get to the campground. It's high elevation so will be colder in winter.

Cottonwood - riverside - can accommodate a 40' RV, dry camping and doesn't allow generators

Stayed at Maverick last spring while visiting Big Bend National Park, great park compared to the others in the area, a little out of the way, big plus was they took Passport America for the week we were there, couldn't beat the price either. Others are correct in that you need to stock up before going down but there is a nice store right outside the entrance of Big Bend, (can't think of the name of the town) if you need anything.
