Fodor's Review

The park's main visitor center, near the base of the Chisos Mountains, includes a bookstore and exhibits on the park's mountain, river, and desert environments. One exhibit poses this question: What is the most dangerous animal in the park? When you open the panel, you're staring into a mirror. A new, elegantly produced 22-minute film detailing the wonders of the park shows on request in the theater, and there's a sprawling board replica of the park's topographical folds. Nearby, a gas station offers limited groceries such as chips, sandwiches, and other picnic items.
