Rio Grande Village Group Tent Campground
The Rio Grande Village Group Campground sits near the banks of the Rio Grande, the International Boundary between the United States and Mexico. The four group campsites are great options for groups of nine people or more and is one of the most popular campgrounds in Big Bend National Park.
The group campsites are tent-only; RVs, truck campers, and trailers are not allowed. Vehicle parking is restricted to an adjacent parking area.
Group Site C allows for ONE smaller recreational vehicle (camper van, pickup camper, or small RV up to 20') to camp adjacent to the tenter area as part of the larger group. Parking spots for this are marked with the letter "C."
All other sites are exclusively walk-in, tents only.
There are no hook-ups available in the group sites and generators are prohibited anywhere in the group campground or adjacent parking area.
Each site is provided with a picnic table, charcoal grill and bear-proof food storage locker. All four group sites are within easy walking distance to water spigots and restrooms. Showers and laundry facilities can also be found close by at the Rio Grande Village Store.
Wood fires and ground fires are NOT allowed anywhere in the park. A charcoal fire in an above-ground grill is allowed; ashes must be packed out. Liquid-fuel stoves are allowed. Tent camping only.
