Big Bend National Park Sights

Castolon Historic District

  • Town/Village

Updated 10/21/2013

Fodor's Review

Adobe buildings and wooden shacks serve as reminders of the farming and military community of Castolon, near the banks of the Rio Grande. The Magdalena House has historical exhibits. A general store, housed in an old adobe and fronted by shaded picnic tables, is good for drinks, snacks, and a friendly face. The nearby Castolon Visitor Center closes in summer.
