Big Bend Ranch State Park, Texas

You go to Texas for “big” and no other Lone Star state park does “big” like Big Bend Ranch State Park. We’re talking a park so big that it literally has its own paved airstrip. Weighing in at 311,000 acres, Big Bend Ranch is the largest state park in Texas, and that size allows for lots of adventure. The park features access to the Rio Grande and 238 miles of trails ascending jagged peaks and winding among cliffs and canyons. Choose your own adventure in this desert landscape: hiking, horseback riding, biking, rafting, four-wheeling, kayaking, canoeing, or fishing; stick to the popular sites or explore an area where you’re likely not to see another soul. And 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.
