The tent camping was perfect. We utilized the unused ranch road above Rio Bravo 1 for pitching tents since we needed to fit in 2 small tents and that area was flat and clear. Lauren's directions were clear and easy to follow to reach Rio Bravo 1 and everything was well marked. The "Chinati Potty" might have been the cleanest porta potty we've ever been in. The location of the ranch is a perfect jumping off point for BBRSP.

Absolutely beautiful spot to camp - the sunset & views were absolutely incredible, and it was so lovely to be able to have a fire. Lauren’s directions were super clear, and her communication was prompt. Highly recommend this hipcamp to any- and everyone!!

My friends and I loved the campsites! We liked the amenities and the fact we had phone signal (att/Verizon/tmobile) was very awesome! The sunrise and sunsets were a must see!!!

Great little place with convenient access to both BBRSP and Presidio. Lovely and quiet with a great view of the sky, you can catch both the sunrise and sunset from camp. We'll definitely be back.

Great views of sunrise and sunset from this site and the fire ring is really terrific. Quiet as can be. Facilities are clean and tidy and hosts very friendly and responsive. Great access to west entrance of State Park. Lots of exposure here so be prepared - wind etc.

We booked this site as a backup in case we could not find any campsites as we passed through Big Bend National Park & Big Bend Ranch State Park. We found a site in BBR, but felt it wasn’t ideal and chose to drive to Rio Bravo, and we were so glad we did! Rio Bravo was easy to find and access (we arrived at night in complete darkness). It was a level spot that easily fit our Ford transit xl. The site is surrounded by beautiful views all around you, with a big night sky full of stars. We were able to see fellow hipcampers at the nearby site, but wasn’t a problem. Its also nice knowing there is a locked gate behind you.
