Roma Bluffs Observation Deck
Perched on the Roma Bluffs and located behind a hundred year old customs house, the large observation deck overlooks the Rio Grande and the Mexican city of Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas. The deck provides sweeping views of the borderlands and the Sierra Madre Occidental. It is favorite among avid birders.
Big Red’s Ranch
At Big Red we strengthen families and fight for the fatherless through camps, events, and resources.
Falcon State Park
Fish in the 84,000-acre Falcon International Reservoir, on the Rio Grande. Anglers mainly catch largemouth bass and channel catfish here. Access the lake via our boat ramp, and then clean your catch at our fish cleaning station.
