The accommodations were outstanding and the hospitality was heartwarming. We took advantage of the activities hand our entire family had a blast. The scenery from our house was breathtaking and the proximity to the National Park made it easy.

This is a resort with various activities and a gorgeous golf course. The hotel is retaining the old western look from its Old West history. We stayed in the Badland Hotel. Yes, it is a little dated but fits with the theme. Loved that you actually used keys to enter the room. The best things about this resort are Black Jack's Crossing, the very friendly staff and the gorgeous sunsets on the patio at the Thirsty Goat Saloon! One item to note, if the pool is your thing you might want to book a room at La Cuesta or Calvary Post rooms as they are located across the road from the Badlands hotel and surround the only pool.

While the public areas of this hotel are pretty nice, the rooms I had, on the second floor above the reception, were really pretty marginal. The mattress seemed very old, and uncomfortable, and the pillows were those puffy ones that had no substance to them, like they were stuffed with cotton balls. I thought the food at the bar (same food, I am told, as at the restaurant) was good. Also, one of the rooms did not have an A/C control and it was pretty uncomfortable. The pool was very unimpressive. I booked this hotel because the lodge in Big Bend National Park was fully booked, and this seemed like the closest reliable accommodation. I don't really regret my choice, but if I were to return to the area (which is great) I would probably check out Terlingua.

Just spent 3 nights at Lajitas which was our base to explore the Big Bend National Park. A very charming and comfortable property. All of the staff are very helpful and friendly. A big thanks to Thomas for looking after us in the restaurant and for recommending the potato salad which is the best in Texas (so far 😊). Also thanks to Michael. The bar and restaurant patio area overlook the lovely golf course and stunning views beyond. A great base to visit the park - a very beautiful and special place.

Best RV park near Big Bend NP

Beats any other RV park in the Big Bend NP west area. Nice pool for the kids after spending the day hiking in the NP. The clubhouse was also nice. Mens’ showers were not very clean but I don’t know if any place can offer that given the amount of public use. The one thing that would make the camping better in Maverick Ranch RV park is the inclusion of proper fire pits with a cooking grill. They only provide rocks places in circle. Also, be aware that the park requires all outside lights to be off by 9pm. I understand the purpose is for star viewing but sometimes it’s cloudy. Also this is too early, make it 10p. Be selective of your site. Consider how your TT awning extends, the location of your hookups on the TT and where the site picnic table and hookup drain connections are located. Ours faced west and provided no cover from the hot sun. Finally, it was hard to get a person on the phone when making the reservation and never received a confirmation email. The park needs to get into the online world and allow online booking with real time availability and confirmation.
