“revel in the sight and sound of the river's waters”

Fed by numerous clear springs within the region's karst topography, the Devils River is one of the most ecologically intact rivers in Texas. From the hilltops and water's edge of Devils River State Natural Area, visitors can revel in the sight and sound of the river's waters tumbling over limestone past rugged ridges, canyons and grassy banks, giving life to diverse plants and wildlife. The 37,000-acre state natural area consists of two units--the original 20,000-acres state natural area, now called Del Norte, and the newly acquired 17,000-acre unit known as Big Satan. At Del Norte, which is open to the public, visitors can enjoy day hiking, primitive camping, nature viewing, mountain-biking, horseback riding, swimming, and guided rock-art tours (by appointment). Big Satan is not yet open to the public. Devils River State Natural Area is unique in that it is primitive and isolated, with few amenities and no landscaped playgrounds. Visitors should bring their own food and water and be prepared for a rugged wilderness experience.
