Explore the gorgeous desert landscape at this national park.

Big Bend National Park is a geological marvel evidenced in sea fossils and dinosaur bones to volcanic dikes that mar the desert landscape. It is full of diversity and a place where you can still hear the whispers of pioneers, ranchers, miners, and Native Americans. Featuring over 150 miles of hiking trails, this national park is bigger than Rhode Island. Temperatures often reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit, so be prepared with plenty of water and sunscreen before you go. If you need to take a break from the heat, take one of their scenic drives on these paved roads: Chisos Basin, Ross Maxwell Drive, Persimmon Gap, and Panther Junction.

Feel free to stay overnight for some camping; this national park is open year-round 24/7. There are four developed campgrounds within Big Bend and all of them require reservations. Each campsite can be reserved for up to 14 consecutive nights. The busy season for camping at Big Bend is from January to mid-April. Anglers can expect to find largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill, and green sunfish in the rivers and lakes.

Bird enthusiasts will love this national park. Hundreds of species have been spotted, including green herons, kingfishers, woodpeckers, cardinals, warblers, orioles, vultures, and great horned owls. Be sure to explore the Rio Grande Village, Blue Creek, Cottonwood Campground, and the Chisos Mountains for the best birding opportunities. Enjoy spending time at Big Bend National Park with your friends and family.
