If you are expecting a posh resort RV Park, don’t come to the Big Bend. This is the Chihuahuan Desert, not Estes Park Colorado. The RV parks that are close to Big Bend National Park are all what would be termed rustic. The desert climate is rough on everything, and everywhere is far away so luxuries are too expensive to ship in. People learn to make do with what they have. That is what most people love about the Big Bend. It is getting away from the rat race. Stillwell Store is nothing fancy. They don’t claim to be. What they are is a no frills full hook-up gateway to Big Bend NP. Basically, you have three options if you want full hookups in the area. They are all widely separated mileage-wise, but are fairly similarly close to the Park Headquarters. Stillwell has the best prices for full hook-ups hands down. They are not owned by the same family anymore, but they do a nice job of making you feel welcome. They may not have the entertainment they had, but give them a chance to get settled, and I’m sure they will get lots of repeat campers. I will be one. I rate them not against the perfect RV Park, but against what is available as local competition. They more than hold their own.
A nice park. The campground is well shaded. The sites are adequately far apart. Our site (#2) was not exceptionally level. The hookups were in good shape. The park employees are helpful, and friendly. The park itself is a beautiful place. Lots of hiking trails.
Fairly level site with adequate room. The sites are nicely spaced apart. The water and electrical hookups were in good shape. The only major drawback was the poison ivy. It was EVERYWHERE. Overall a nice National Forest campground. Just be careful where you walk! I am still itching!
A good RV park. The electrical service was good. The water service was a little wobbly and a just a little low on pressure, but adequate. The sewer service was functional. Our trailer is less than 25 feet, so we got a spot for $28 per day. For Estes Park, that is very reasonable. The sites are kind of tight, but there were some big rigs there. The staff were helpful, and very friendly. I'm sure you could find a more up-scale park to stay in, but I doubt you could find a better value. We spend most of our time in the National Park hiking, so all we need is a comfortable place to park the trailer. We found it at Manor. Would definitely stay there again.
Nice Campground. All pull-through sites. Good electrical and water connections. Sewer connection was just a little loose fitting. Sites were fairly level with concrete pads. The only drawback is the 6 mile drive from the Interstate. Would camp there again.
Nice campground. Well manicured, with excellent shade. Good water and electrical connections. It is a city park and police collect the money, so there is good security. Would definitely camp there again.
