Campground reviews on this web site are a jumble because the Park Service named two of its Big Bend facilities nearly identically (Rio Grande Village Campground and Rio Grand Village RV Campground) and many people have posted incorrectly. These two facilities are completely different so...More

The Rio Grande Village in Big Bend National Park caters to RVs. If RVs are your thing, go here. If you are camping you can come and have coin operated 5 min. showers.

This place seems to be a campsite gas and have a store and laundry. The village itself is a campsite. There is a nature trail at campsite 18. Besides that there isn't much to do.

This is a primitive national park, and if you want electricity for your rig, Rio Grande Village has a small paved parking lot where you'll have to camp. If you can get by without electrical hookups, you can enjoy the lovely wooded campground that is...More

We arrived to find everything closed (except the gas pumps thankfully!) due to lack of water. Evidently a 'project" is underway and is past the scheduled completion date. Good thing we were not looking to camp here!
