Big Bend Ranch State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Located in the shadow of its better-known neighbor, Big Bend Ranch State Park is an idyllic escape for those seeking a tent camping site along the scenic Rio Grande River with easy access to FM 170. Whether you’re coming from Presidio to the Northwest or Lajitas and Big Bend National Park to the Southeast, the rugged beauty of this seldom-traveled road as it cuts through Colorado Canyon makes up for any lack of fancy campground amenities along the river. This road makes numerous low water crossings. Keep on the lookout for loose livestock, rockslides, and wild animals such as deer and javelinas, that live in this wonderfully remote park."
--Wendel Withrow, The Best in Tent Camping: Texas (Menasha Ridge Press).
