Rio Grande Village Campground is a popular campground located in Big Bend National Park that sits near the banks of the Rio Grande. It offers 100 campsites with picnic tables, charcoal grills, bear-proof food storage lockers, and a river put-in, as well as amazing views of the Sierra del Carmen Mountains. Visitors can explore the river, nearby hiking trails and backcountry roads, and nearby Boquillas Canyon and Hot Springs.


The Rio Grande Village Campground sits near the banks of the Rio Grande, the International Boundary between the United States and Mexico. It is one of the most popular campgrounds in Big Bend National Park, especially for those traveling in large recreational vehicles. It is located close to Boquillas Canyon and Hot Springs, and acts as a launch point for visitors accessing the river or the endless miles of backcountry roads. Rio Grande Village has an outstanding view of the Sierra del Carmen Mountains, located in Mexico to the east, which light up with hues of red and orange during sunset.


The river offers ample opportunities to explore its shores and water. The river put-in allows easy access to canoeing and kayaking on the river. Birders flock to the river banks to spot such rare and unique species often found only in Big Bend.

Hiking trails are also found nearby and many backcountry roads are located near the campground.


  • This fairly large campground has 100 campsites that range in size from small tent sites to large pull-through sites that can fit a 40-ft. motor home. Please look carefully at the site descriptions, as low hanging branches persist in the campground and not all sites are suitable for tall or long RVs and trailers.   
  • All campsites are reservable, some six months in advance, some two weeks in advance.  Site #s 14 (ADA), 20-25, 34, 61-65, 67-70, 72, 74-75, 87-100 are reservable only 2 weeks in advance. There is no first-come, first served camping. There are a few sites set aside for administrative use.  
  • There are no hookups available in the facility but each site is provided with a picnic table, charcoal grill and bear-proof food storage locker. Some are also furnished with picnic shelters for shade. Generators are permitted in some sites during designated generator hours (8AM - 8PM).
  • All campsites are within easy walking distance to water spigots, flush toilets, and utility sinks, and for those camping in motor homes and travel trailers, a fill/dump station is provided at the campground's entrance. Showers and laundry facilities can be found at the Rio Grande Village Store just outside the entrance to the campground.

Natural Features

The mountain views, proximity to the river and shade from the surrounding cottonwood trees make Rio Grande Village Campground irresistible to visitors.

This facility is at an elevation of 1,850 ft. Because cold air tends to sink into lower valleys during the peak seasons of fall and winter, temperatures are cooler here than in other parts of the park during these times. However, temperatures from April to September can easily exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
