About

Named for the whitewater Devils River that runs through it, the Devils River State Natural Area-Del Norte was once part of a large working ranch, but was purchased by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 1988. Today the Devils River-Del Norte is home to many varieties of flora and fauna, including the Mexican free-tailed bat as well as live oak, pecan and sycamore trees. Devils River-Del Norte is a very remote location surrounded by private ranches; therefore visitors to the State Natural Area fully enjoy the area’s pristine night skies.
