You are in the midst of a property that spans from the Rio Grande across Alamito Creek and then across Casa Piedra.  Alamito Creek splits the property into the "Airstrip" side and the "Backside."  RB1 is located on the backside. The roads are improved and accessible by sedan or other low clearance 2wd vehicle.

My wife and I brought our 2 kids (ages 6 and 7) for a night at Rio Bravo Ranch. It was fantastic! The hosts have set up everything you need for a great experience! The shade structure and the picnic tables are great, but do not take away from the environment, which is what we were hoping for at this location. We love Far West Texas and have always wanted a private camping spot with great views, that feels rustic, but has the amenities you need for a young family. Rio Bravo Ranch fits the bill. Another draw for us was the proximity to the entrance to Big Bend Ranch State Park. Until now, unless you are staying in the state park itself, you had a long drive to get into the park. Staying at Rio Bravo Ranch makes the drive into the park much less time consuming. It's a great "base camp" for exploring the park! We will definitely be back and would recommend Rio Bravo Ranch to anyone looking for solitude and proximity to BBRSP!

Great home base for discovering the big bend area! Close to the state park and right off 170 which takes you most everywhere you want to be. Lots of land to explore on the property. Great mountain views! Small amount of light pollution from the town of presidio in the distance. Overall would recommend and stay here again! Thanks Lauren & Family!!
