Situated on the shore of sprawling Falcon Reservoir, 572-acre Falcon State Park is one of the few places for tent camping in the lower Rio Grande Valley. (It has spaces for RVs as well.) Its scrub woodland of mesquite, Texas ebony, blackbrush acacia, huisache, and Texas olive, combined with grassland dotted with prickly pear, hosts many Valley specialties. If you’ve traveled here from the east, you’ll notice that this region has a more western feeling than sites farther downstream, a circumstance reflected in the birdlife, too. You may well see a Greater Roadrunner trotting along the roadside as you enter, and you could hear a Cactus Wren singing as you get out of your car.
