We stayed in Lajitas at their Maverick Ranch RV park, which is right across the road from the resort. We stayed here for a few days while on a 10 day camping trip (left DFW, went out west to Ft Davis, down to Big Bend and back up through the hill country).
This park is about a 30 minute drive to the entrance to the national park, but just a few minutes from the state park. There’s a lot of great amenities, which normally we don’t care about. However, since this was halfway through our 10-day trip, we were able to do all of our laundry, which made me happy. The RV park has a clubhouse with games, books, laundry, showers and a pool. You also have access to the resort amenities.
The RV park is a dark sky park, so camera are supposed to have exterior lights off after 9 or 10pm so everyone can enjoy the stars.
There’s also a dog park with grass, which our dogs were happy about!
San Angelo good place for mountain biking, decent trails, it was so hot, that it brought some very bad thunderstorms, had some hail damage at this location, would like to be back here, but with a Mountain bike, at a cooler time of the year. 20 to 23. June 2020
Like all NP campgrounds, no fires are allowed which is disappointing. There are pit toilets which are incredibly clean however, the walk up to the flushing RV toilets isn't too far. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of privacy at the sites because they seem pretty tightly packed at first. Each site has a nice tent pad and picnic table. The parking isn't very adequate and at most of the sites you will need to carry your gear from your car a little way to the campsites. Sites are first come first serve. We got there in the late morning during busy season and had several sites to pick from but the camp ground did fill every day. The views are decent from the campground. Location is ideal. It's pretty central in GMNP and only 30 minutes from Carlsbad Caverns NP(where they only have back country sites). Overall, not a bad campground and probably the best option around while visiting GMNP and CCNP if you're a tent camper(their RV parking lot looked terrible).
Only one night passing thru, but this goes on the return for an extended stay list Campsites were large and spread out Large lake and water access Power and water at campsites Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. No problem getting thru park with 41ft 5th wheel. Hiking, water, open space - a perfect setting for a longer stay. Covered picnic tables, flat camp sites.
When you camp here in an RV you are basically parking in a parking lot. It has a bathroom and all, but other than that - just a parking lot. However, this is right at the trail head for Guadalupe Peak so if you are planning to hike that it is super convenient!! Parking lots get full really early in the day and you end up parking at the visitor center and hiking down to the trial head. But, if you stay here it makes it super easy to walk out of your door and hit the trails. For that reason alone we would stay here! It's not somewhere I would want to spend a week though. Just a night to be able to easily jump on the trails the next morning!
Beautiful RV park located in Lajitas. It has an outdoor pool and when we went in May, the water was cold but it was nice to float in the pool. The staff were very helpful. It was already starting to get hot at the beginning of May.
The stars are so bright at night and you can easily see the milky way galaxy.
We stayed here for 4 nights in early May 2019. We stayed in the Red Arroyo Campground at the South entrance of the park. The best thing about this park is the amount of space between spots. Plenty of space between you and your neighbors. The park is beautiful and very quiet. When we were there the wildflowers were in full bloom. Spots are water and electric only, but there is a dump onsite. We had spot #13 and it was steep, but we were able to tuck our 30ft trailer at the bottom where it leveled out. No levelers required. The park has many trails for hiking and biking. Some of the trails were a bit muddy, but they had recently had rain. Cell phone service was good. We were able to get internet through the hotspot. Overall, it was a nice stay and we would stay here again. $20 price reflects camping fee only. Day use fee is $4 per person if you do not have a Texas State Park Pass.
