This state park is so big that it actually has its own paved airstrip. Coming in at 311,000 acres in size, Big it’s the largest state park in Texas, keeping true to the state’s mantra: Everything’s bigger in Texas. And, in this case, means expansive mountain ranges, endless horseback riding trails, wildlife watching through the giant Chiuahaha Dessert, and more (including a ghost town).
Operated by Texas Parks and Wildlife, the park features access to the Rio Grande and 238 miles of trails. Many of these trails go over winding cliffs and canyons, high deserts, an more. Choose your own adventure in this desert landscape: hiking, horseback riding, biking, rafting, four-wheeling, kayaking, canoeing, or fishing. Anglers take note: the parks and wildlife department requires a fishing permit to fish inside the park, but they’re easily accessible and available to any visitor.

So, whether you decide to camp here or not, we recommend sticking around to do some stargazing, because even the night sky is bigger at this beloved park.
