General details regarding our visit:

Please join us as we escape into nature at Brazos Bend State Park. This beautiful park contains diverse ecosystems include bottomland hardwood forests, tall grass coastal prairies, and wetlands (swamps, marshes, lakes and, of course, the Brazos River). It is also home to a wide variety of wildlife, including over 300 species of birds, 21 species of reptiles and 23 species of mammals. There is an educational nature center, and observatory, a nature deck, and miles of hiking trails.

Campsite/Screened Shelter Information:

Campsites have electric and water. Sites fit up to 8 people. I encourage you to share sites if possible. Amanda and I are sharing site 209. The closest sites are available 207, 211, 212, 216 or 218 with a few more scattered around. I recommend booking sooner than later to make sure you get a site.
