Mesquite, huisache, wild olive, ebony, cactus and native grasses cover these gently rolling hills along the Rio Grande.
Falcon Lake is a fishing paradise, especially for those seeking black and white bass, catfish and stripers.
Bird watchers enjoy this area, as well. The park's varied bird life includes both common resident birds, which range throughout the American Southwest, and many of the tropical species for which this is the northwestern-most outpost. Birders may also see uncommon species such as the small green kingfisher and the varied bunting.
We frequently see javelinas in the park; be sure to keep food packed away!
