I have been here several times before over the years. Due to the pandemic no one was allowed inside the building. You walked up to a window covered with plexiglass and a ranger talked to you answering your questions. The ranger gave out needed permits and collected fees. The outside display out back was closed but the restrooms were open. They had a good bulletin board display which answered most questions and let one know what was available.

The exhibits are closed at this time, but we have been through them before, and it is very informative. When all the restrictions are lifted, I would recommend a visit!

If you are visiting Big Bend Texas State Park the visitor center is a must stop. You can purchase camping permits, check in for hiking, grab map trails and learn about the park, including things to be aware of like hydration requirements, makes, scorpions, and tarantulas. Beautiful landscape and sunsets and located near the Rio Grande and Lajitas, TX as well as situated across the water from Chihuahua, Mexico. If you are not familiar with Texas, the trails, etc make sure to visit. The desert is very unforgiving if you’re not aware of risks or dangers. From personal experience, don’t just grab something when you are slipping down a steep rise on a trail, even the plants tend to ‘bite’!

I always travel to the Warnock Visitor Center to experience sunrises in Big Bend State Park whenever I am in West Texas! They are a natural artistic beauty!!! And the staff at the Visitor Center, especially Michelle, is ALWAYS extremely helpful and friendly! One of my favorite places in Texas!

Some parks have folks at the front desk who just need a job, the Barton Warnock has folks who actually live in the area and love it. The museum part has a ton to teach and the book store is great. This place is hands down better than the national park in teaching stuff about the area, and the outdoor garden is excellent.
