You don’t have to leave Texas to find incredible adventures and wild scenery. The Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River National Park offers a playground of rapids, canyons, cliffs and other natural wonders to get your blood pumping and your mind wandering. A visit to the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River can be insanely adventurous, downright relaxing or a perfect combination of both.
An Outdoor Playground
The Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River park offers a breathtaking setting for enjoying your favorite outdoor sports. River rafting, canoeing, fishing, hiking and guided tours are just a few of the countless activities you can get involved in while visiting the park. Float trips through the Boquillas Canyon, Lower Canyons and Mariscal Canyon are one of the favorite experiences among visitors to the park, and you can plan yours directly through the National Parks Service website.
Everything You Need
You don’t have to be an expert rafter, kayak or fisherman to enjoy your time at the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River. Local outfitters offer equipment and guide services that will help you handle park permits, gear, shuttles, food and everything you need to have a stress-free, enjoyable time on the river.
Park Hours and Details
Winter is beginning to settle in in some parts of the country, but it’s still the perfect time to be outside in Texas. The Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River park is open 24 hours a day all year long, so you don’t have to put your outdoor adventures on hold for the season.
This park does not require an entry fee, but some portions of the river flow through other parks. If you float into Big Bend National Park, you’ll be charged a fee for entry. Day-use permits for the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River are free, but overnight trips cost $10.
