We are planning a trip to Big Bend next week. Our Rv is a 26' Forest River Class B. Any comments as to if we should camp in the park or is there any parks outside? We will be towing a car for short trips after we sent up the RV. Is there campsites with electricity and water in the park?
there is only one little campground (parking lot) with elec, down at Rio Grande Village campground.
the other campground there is well shaded and has water and a dump station.
if you want elec., and it will be pretty hot down there by now, you can stay in Terlingua at the Big Bend Motel and RV park, it's large, but busy, so call ahead. There is another, smaller rv park at Study Butte, just down the road from Terlingua.

We stayed at the Big Bend RV/Motel Park at Study Butte, mentioned above. Their website is bigbendresortadventures.com
It has FHU and you're only a couple of miles from the park entrance. We really liked the location. There is a cafe across the highway, a small convenience store/gas station down the road, and nearby Terlingua ghost town is worth a visit.
We LOVE Big Bend because it's so beautiful and not lots of crowds and traffic.
Since the park is huge and you'll be doing a lot of driving, we would recommend that you stay IN the park. Rio Grande Village campground is our favorite. It's very scenic, has many trees but no electric. Next door are "parking lot-type" of RV sites with electric but it's very doable and there would be a nice grassy area behind your RV for sitting. Also at this area is a small store, laundry, showers and gas station. Have a great trip!!
