Situated where the Rio Grande River takes a big southerly dip in West Texas, Big Bend National Park covers a massive expanse of desert, woodlands, and grasslands full of rivers, limestone canyons, and high mountains. Nearly 2,000 species of plant and animal life call this place home.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Big Bend National Park - Fossil Bone Exhibit and Homer Wilson Ranch. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Terlingua and Castolon Historic District. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ernst Tinaja Trail, take in the dramatic scenery at Cattail Falls Trail, and play a few rounds at Lajitas Zipline.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Big Bend National Park sightseeing planning tool .

In July, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 99°F, while at night they dip to 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
