Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park is an absolute gem in far south Texas. Firstly, it's a bird watchers paradise. There are a number of blinds and an observation deck to see birds and other wildlife... more »

Mission Biking and Hiking trails are okay. Flat terrain. Quiet. Simple. Healing the herons and Canal water. A shooting range within the distance. The most outdoorsy place I found in this area. more »

I like doing some of the trails, they're short distance maybe 1-2 miles. Nice to just be outdoors! It does get hot, pack you water to stay hydrated. :) There's also a resaca (oxbow) where people go fishing too for alligator gar. Since its a state park you don't need a fishing license. The fishing spots are not super comfy. We saw some with kayaks for fishing.

Large number of police and border patrol, park removed the bird feeders and stopped feeding weeks before the migration ended and didn't inform me they did before I paid to get in. Staff has a "I don't care " attitude. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Good state park for walking and watching birds. Unfortunately as a state park yo need to pay for walking inside. There is also bike rental there.

We rented bicycles and rode the three miles around the state park. We seen a few birds at a bird blind. We also saw a javelina. Nice gift shop but a little pricey.

Great park! It has bike trails, hiking trails, primitive camping sites, and of course amazing bird watching spots!
