Rio Grande Village RV Campground, Big Bend National Park, Tx

Headed to “Boquillas Crossing” Texas to have a good Mexican lunch across the boarder Feb 2019. Looks like there is a ferry (row boat) used to cross the Rio Grande and a donkey ride into the town of Boquillas.

We are looking at spending a night at the Rio Grande Village Campground. Any reviews?

Thanks.

Patrick

Excellent choice in campground and activities! You need a lot more than one night though. It's an long effort to get to the park and to explore the park takes days. It's big. It's in Texas you know! Enjoy.

Try to stay in the no hookups campground at RGV. If you want full hookups you'll be in a tight parking lot side by side with others. No cell but wifi at the store. I prefer to boondock when I go. Take groceries. There is not much for a couple of hundred miles. Cross into Mexico via rowboat but take a passport. Visit Hot Springs and soak. You'll want to spend a week in the area if you can. Enjoy the serenity and beauty of our southern border.

Reservations?

Do you have reservations?

The RV park (with hookups) fills up rather quickly. We were there this last May. We had a great time, but it was already hot.

Crossing the border into Boquillos is interesting. Since it is later in the year they close the crossing earlier, so be sure you know exactly what time to be back. It's not too bad a walk into town from where the "ferry" drops you off, but if it had rained in the past few days there are a few muddy spots to cross.

Both restaurants have decent food and reasonable prices. The beer is cold too!
