Visited here in October . Shame the little Border Crossing was closed which is odd as you would expect it would be a 7 day operation however the customs people had a couple of days off . Really enjoyed this place and would say make sure you take the time to visit and stay when in South West Texas

We drove all over Big Bend, and there were many pretty places, but this was the most beautiful. Long or short hikes, all with great views.

A beautiful gem in the Desert Southwest. The beauty here is truly amazing. The rock formations are truly stunning in the way they react to the sun throughout the day. The drive up to the Basin is beautiful. Lots of great hiking trails and beautiful vistas. Lots of wildlife too. Really great camping up in the Basin. (Make reservations ahead... More

Just the drive going into the Basin is a must do. Going around the twisty and curves is really neat. I would go again. There's a nice restaurant and I think the best and biggest store in the entire park. It was actually a gift store vs the grocery stores in the other stores in the park. Great views. I... More

The drive in and out the hikes around are worthwhile. Quite scenic and you may just see a bear or two, and not the one on the sign.

This is a wonderful place to get away to. The views are great and the hiking is phenomenal. Spend some time and get away from it all.

We have lived in TX all our lives, but never been to Big Bend National Park...It was amazing and the Chisos Mountains probably the most beautiful part. They have had alot of rain, so it was in full bloom and just amazing!!!

I honestly didn't know Texas could be this beautiful. Driving through these mountains reminded me of driving through parts of Spain. Go there. Go there now.

Beautiful desert landscapes and wildlife. Many hikes and opportunities for adventure. Definitely will be back. Camp or stay in the lodge. Gas stations close early, about 5, so make sure you have enough before you go in scenic tours on your own. Sometimes the pumps don't work after the station closes. The park is huge.
