At Big Bend National Park, you can’t possibly get any closer to Mexico without actually crossing the border — the Rio Grande is the southern border of the park.

Find an RV rental in Alpine and drive down to Big Bend for convenient camping, exceptional terrain, and panoramic views.

Venture into nearby towns, such as Study Butte, for a taste of small-town living.

Getting Outdoors

There is always something to explore when visiting Big Bend National Park, so take some time off work, plan a trip, and book an RV in Brewster County to discover everything the park has to offer. For those who enjoy hiking through vast wilderness and breathtaking canyons, this might be a great place to spend your next vacation. The Santa Elena Canyon Trail winds around the edge of the Rio Grande River into the Santa Elena Canyon, whose walls rise to about 1,500 feet. Experienced hikers searching for a challenge may enjoy day hikes to South Rim or Emory Peak. The more adventurous souls in your camping crew can arrange a canoe trip with a local guide and spend the day paddling through the Santa Elena Canyon on the Rio Grande.

If you’re camping in an RV near Big Bend National Park, you can take the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, putting you up close to amazing desert landscapes as well as mountain views of the Chihuahuan Desert. Take a break along the way at Blue Creek Ranch Overlook, where you can see the old homestead and a breathtaking view. You can stop and do some moderate hiking along the Mule Ear Springs Trail before continuing to another overlook where you’ll see the cores of prehistoric volcanoes.

After adventuring the day away in Big Bend National Park, relax by soaking in the natural hot springs near the edge of the Rio Grande River. The hot springs are located by the remains of an early 20th-century settlement complete with pictographs of a past era.

Camping at Big Bend National Park

You’ll find several camping options when you visit Big Bend National Park, including full-service RV sites and primitive campsites. There are four designated campgrounds in Big Bend National Park, with the National Park Service operating three campgrounds that provide restrooms, drinking water, fire rings, and picnic tables. Chisos Basin, Cottonwood, and Rio Grande Village campgrounds don’t offer hookups for RVs, but generators are permitted at some sites. A dump station and the Rio Grande Village Store is near the entrance to the campgrounds, providing laundry and shower facilities.

Chisos Basin Campground may be ideal for smaller RVs and campers. The road leading into the campground is steep and filled with sharp turns. However, the Chisos Basin Visitors’ Center, General Store, and Chisos Mountain Lodge are near the entrance. Each campsite is equipped with a charcoal grill and picnic table. Drinking water, toilets, and a dump station are a short distance from the campsites.

Forever Resorts operates the fourth campground, the Rio Grande Village RV Park. Situated on the Rio Grande’s banks, close to the hot springs and Boquillas Canyon, this campground offers full hookups, drinking water, and flush toilets. Big rigs are also welcome here. The Sierra del Carmen Mountains provide a spectacular backdrop, especially at sunset when they seem to glow shades of orange and red.

During peak times at Big Bend National Park, campgrounds may fill up, leaving you searching for an option outside of the park. Maverick Ranch RV Park, located at Lajitas Golf Resort, may be a good choice. Biking and equestrian trails are available right on-site. You can enjoy the Agave Spa, play a round of golf at Black Jack’s Crossing Golf Club, zip line through Quiet Canyon, or gun down some sporting clays at the gun range.

Exploring the Area

While camping at Big Bend National Park, take time to visit some of the sites outside of the park, such as Terlingua, the ghost town that seems to be the best-kept secret in southern Texas. Terlingua was once a mining town founded by the Chisos Mining Company that prospered in the early 1900s and was even the site of the first championship chili cook-off held in 1967. Visit Terlingua in the afternoon to see the Santa Fe de Los Pinos Mountain Range off in the distance, some 80 miles south in Mexico.

Take a drive north to visit Alpine, which houses the major service center for Big Bend National Park. You can find hotels and restaurants featuring authentic Mexican, Tex-Mex, and American cuisine here. Alpine is the place to shop for groceries and other essentials before RV camping at Big Bend National Park. The Sul Ross State University calls Alpine home and hosts annual events such as the Cowboy Poetry Gathering and Gallery Night.

Big Bend National Park is just a stone’s throw from Mexico, making it an excellent vacation destination for road trippers exploring southern Texas.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.

How many people can sleep in an RV?

Small travel trailers and campervans can usually sleep 2-4 people comfortably. Mid-size trailers and motorhomes usually sleep 4-8. Bigger rigs often sleep 6-10, some even 12!

Why choose Outdoorsy vs Craigslist or Airbnb?

Security, for one. Outdoorsy helps protect RV owners and renters with excellent support and insurance options, and a secure platform for listings, communication, and payments. There are plenty of other reasons though, like roadside assistance, detailed listings, and a wide variety of RVs to choose from.

Chisos Basin Campground

There is a lot of diving in this part to get to different hikes... It is good to have a small camper and if you're less than 24' you can stay at the Basin. Bigger need to go a different site.
