Brazos Bend State Park

Let's meet up at 8am at the Park! Entrance fee is $7 per adult without a State Park pass.


We'll park at 40 Acre Lake parking area, which is the first parking area on the left after you enter the park.
Maps are available on their website at
http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publications/pwdpubs/media/park_maps/pwd_mp_p4504_110l.pdf

You can make your way through the Spillway Trail, Elm Lake, Horseshoe Lake, and Big Creek Loop. This will be a great opportunity to see alligators, turtles, bull frogs, snakes, and tons of water fowl such as whistling ducks, egrets, herons, ibis, and others. There is also a Nature Center that opens at 9 am and the George Observatory is open at 3pm.

You'll want to bring water/gatorade, snacks, camera, sun screen, bug spray, hats and comfy shoes. For those who are adventuresome, the park gates do open at 7am, but we'll meet as a group at 8m.

    Enjoyed the company of the people that attended and the park is great. I could see a spring, fall or winter visit After about 10:30 it was getting to warns to lug cdmera gear. Alfred found a volunteer your "ranger" that was leading a small group around one of the ponds across from the nature center. Very interesting, lots of information we don't get by wondering and was shown things we didn't spot around 40 acre or elm lakes. Great outing!

    I have been there once a month for the last 6 months. I know of a few nest that you can photograph, if the young are still in them.

    Sorry, I won't be able to make this one.
    But for those that are going. Don't forget your bug spray!
    Speaking of bug spray, be careful which one you take. Most of them have DEET in them. If you get DEET on your camera (from your hands or just rubbing against your clothes) it breaks down the rubber on your camera.
