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.
Visit Terlingua and Ghost Town Texas for their historical value. Step out of the city life by going to Big Bend Ranch State Park and The Window Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Terlingua (Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center & Indian Head Trail). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, take in breathtaking views at Boquillas Canyon, take in the dramatic natural features at The Balanced Rock, and hike along Lost Mine Trail.

To find reviews, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Big Bend National Park online visit planner .

June in Big Bend National Park sees daily highs of 100°F and lows of 75°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
