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

Visited several times as a guest and volunteered for 3 months during summer and fall of 2014. Staff is superior and quite devoted to the care and upkeep of the Park. They are eager to please and want your experience to be the BEST ever !! Important: bathrooms throughout the park and supplied with the essentials. Plenty of wildlife to... More

This is one of my favorite State Parks in TX. Multiple walking/hiking trails to choose from, and most are good for beginners. There are alligators everywhere but they are used to the guests so if you follow the park rules, you will be perfectly safe. Plenty of picnic tables and even benches along the paths so you can stop and... More

This is just a great place to visit. If you are local, it's a great place to picnic, enjoy nature, see alligators in the wild, or bring tourist visitors. If you are not local, it is a great place to visit, or to camp. The campsites are bigger than average, and wooded. Pets are welcome. There are nature trails that... More

From all of the other reviews, you can tell how amazing this place is. For me, I was was most worried about the safety of my family. I'm happy to say that this place has a real sense of danger, but is completely safe. The alligators are not going to jump out of the bushes and get you. The only... More

The park itself is very well kept. There are nice and easy trails for biking. We saw many alligators in their natural environments, but at no time felt scared or threatened by the creatures. They for the most part just went about their business in the water. I wouldn't think of approaching them, though. We saw one that had to... More
