Big Bend National Park is a land of borders. Situated on the boundary with Mexico along the Rio Grande, it is a place where countries and cultures meet. It is also a place that merges natural environments, from desert to mountains.
The Big Bend Region is named for a huge northeasterly curve of the Rio Grande in the southwest corner of Texas. It is one of the few remaining remote and wildly beautiful natural regions in North America. Over one million acres of public land including Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park offer activities like hiking, camping, river running, horse riding, mountain bicycling, jeep touring, and casual sightseeing.
Big Bend Chamber has links and information to area businesses.
