BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK

Scenic vistas, diverse wildlife, historic sites, and border culture rank among the features visitors enjoy in Big Bend. Bring your hiking shoes and a constellation guide to explore the vast array of scenery. Big Bend National Park is bigger than Rhode Island and a favorite national park. Explore the Mexican border through tumbleweeds, world-class canyons, the Rio Grande River and Old West folklore in the still-wild West. And do not forget about those Big Bend bright starry nights!


BEST TIME TO GO

Big Bend is open year-round; however, summer temperatures can be sweltering, and many park facilities close. We recommend visiting in spring or fall when temperatures are moderate. Winter can also be pleasant, though nighttime temperatures may drop below freezing. Avoid holidays if possible as the park is often full during spring break, Thanksgiving and winter break.
