Amazing trip. Be sure to go on a warm day. You will be able see more gators out. Great experience!
Nice park with beautiful moss draped trees. I was worried about the alligators but never saw any. Maybe it's was not warm enough in March. They had a nice nature building where the kids petted a baby alligator and learned some stuff about the animals there. There is a nice little park and walking trails. They have an observatory that looks cool but we missed it the night we got there. The bathrooms are decent for sure which is always a must in my opinion.
We can't wait to go back. With our toddler in the jogging stroller and our pup at our side we enjoyed a small fraction of what Brazos Bend has to offer. Next time we will get there a bit earlier so we can do some more exploring. Even with gators a few feet off the trails we felt safe. Great experience.
