Texas Visitor's Guide

Big Bend National Park, Texas

Why It’s Cool: The Rio Grande runs right through Big Bend, so rafting, canoeing, and kayaking trips are an incredible way to experience the park. If staying dry is more your style, there are also trails covering desert, mountain, and river terrain for day hikes or backpacking trips. One popular desert hike is Devil’s Den, a moderate 5.6-mile trip along the rim of and down into a limestone slot canyon. Another beautiful hike is the Santa Elena Canyon Trail, a moderate 1.7-mile round-trip hike that provides both top-down and bottom-up views of the canyon. Oh, and don’t forget to look up at night: The park’s remote location provides gorgeous views of the starry sky.

Where to Camp: The park operates three developed campgrounds. You'll also find primitive roadside campsites for backcountry camping scattered throughout.

When It’s Open: Year-round.

Cost: $25 per vehicle, valid for seven days. Annual passes also available. Developed campground fees are $14 per site per night, while backcountry campsites require a $12 permit. For more information, visit the park's website.
