Fodor's Review

The 23-acre site in Presidio County contains a thick-walled adobe trading post that dates back to pioneer days. There are exhibits, a ½-mile nature trail, picnic sites, guided tours and a store. The park is day-use only—no camping is available. The fort also doubles as a visitor center for Big Bend Ranch State Park.
