  • Very nice place to stop at. The model of the mountains was very helpful to understand what you are seeing in the park. Staff was very friendly. I bought several books about BBNP here.

  • Great park with a great visitor center! Clean, cool water on demand to refill our jugs (no smell, no taste). Nice store, restrooms available, post office and stellar views! They even have events afterhours where you meet in the parking lot and go from there. It would have 5 stars but the parking lot was a bit small for how many large campers, RV and trailers they had for how busy it was (lots of near misses) during the day. We visited three times during our stay.
  • Plan on stopping here for all things Big Bend! This is a ranger station, HQ for the Big Bend Natural History Association, book store, post office, gift shop and gas station/convenience store. Centrally located with nice restrooms. There is also a nature trail adjacent. At this time, masks are required inside the building.
