Testimonials and reviews:

This is a very nice park. It is close to the Lake and to the town of Del Rio. There is room for your extra vehicle and room for slide outs on your RV. We watch the deer and the turkeys come from the brush into the park. The man who runs and owns the park is very nice and our stay here was very enjoyable.


To all, this is a Wonderful park. We were most impressed with the staff, the building’s, bathroom’s and exercise room which were spotless and all in excellent order. Not only was it in a great location close to wall mart and was very close to the lake. They had a very large recreation room and excellent wifi as well. Mike (the owner) came over and talked to us personally inquiring on how our stay was going and thanked us for choosing his park. I forgot to mention the wide spaces between the sites and many pull through sites which were lush with green grass. The laundry facility, over 90 cable channels and the pool were top notch as well. The park is very nice you will not be disappointed. We will be staying at broke mill again next we go through Del Rio.


Our San Antonio RV club stayed here and everyone enjoyed their stay and commented how this was a fantastic place. The staff, amenities and location were everything anyone could be looking for. We plan to stay here in route back to San Antonio after a month in west Texas and New Mexico. We would recommend this park to anyone either traveling through or spending an extended time in Del Rio.


This RV Park Rocks with First Class Facilities and very Clean, Clean, Clean. This park is very close to Lake Amistad for those boaters like me. The owner Mike is a really nice guy and can serve as a very knowledgeable guide when it comes to directions to attractions to see on the Lake. We plan on visiting with Mike and staying at the Park again during the Labor Day Weekend 2009.

Testimonials and reviews:

Although this campground is located at the Lajitas Resort and Spa, it is named Maverick Ranch RV Park. If you like the desert, this is the place for you. It is located between Big Bend National Park and a huge Texas state park, and it is by far the best private campground in the region. The area is about as isolated as you can get–the closest Wal-Mart, we were told, is 100 miles away. The facilities are terrific, including one of the nicest bath houses we’ve seen.


The resort has a golf course, an equestrian center, and all sorts of outdoor activities are available on site or nearby. The rates were also quite reasonable. We found our stay there very relaxing and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.


We stayed here for 4 days and loved it. It is a quiet, lovely setting with mountain views. The Bathrooms, laundry, pool, keep fit room, were all clean. 60 pull through sites. There is lots of space. Paved site and grass. We will be staying here again. There is so much to see and do. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.


This campground is part of the Lajitas resort. There were 10 to 15 campers here while we were here. Lots of room and big spaces. The showers were very clean and well kept. You have to check in at the resort which is not at the park area but is not really a problem. The camp host was very nice and helpful. Very convenient to Big Bend NP. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
