This is such a fun place to visit. The park offers a chance to get up close look at alligators in their natural environment. The park was temporarily closed due to heavy rains this spring however is now back open.

Best state park I have visited. So much to do and see. I thought one day would be sufficient but now can't wait to go back and plan to camp there and spend at least a couple days. Even with 103 degree temperatures it was so beautiful and a day of fun. There were docks to fish off and great... More

This is a wonderful park to visit. Clean, attractive campsites, a nice Nature Center, interesting hiking trails, lakes and the Brazos River, friendly and informative staff, and alligators!

We thought bravos bend state park was only to do something for a day, but we were totally wrong. Bravos bend state park is really a visit worth since it is a real well kept park and there is a lot of nature to be explored. It is not only wild nature meant for. Outdoor freaks, but also nature for... More

I went to Brazos Bend for the first time yesterday and it was super beautiful and fun so I decided to go back again today for a longer trip. As soon as I began my hike at 8 am I was followed by a wasp the whole way that kept circling me and hitting me in the face. I rushed... More

It’s great to get back to nature and it’s a necessity when you live in a concrete jungle like Houston, Texas. Fortunately, there is such a place very close to Houston, and it’s teaming with wildlife, including alligators, snakes, birds, and more. I’m talking about Brazos Bend State Park, a place known for its natural scenery and nature education. I... More

As always, it is a real treat to go to Brazos State Park. It was too hot for the alligators to come out and their breeding season was delayed because of the recent flooding. I did get to stroke a toddler alligator (he was one year old) and took great pics.

Brazos Bend State Park is a great way to spend the day. They have hiking trails and more than likely you will see an alligator up close. Lots of picnic areas and play grounds that are kept clean. At night they have the George Bush Observatory hosting different kinds of functions. It worth the drive if you're in the surrounding... More
