The Chisos Basin Visitor Center is one of several found in Big Bend National Park. It is the spot for the only lodge within the park, and offers an interactive computer exhibit as well as a bookstore. A general store has camping supplies and some groceries and beverages for purchase. There is an amphitheatre where evening activities are sometimes held. Several walking and hiking trails of varying difficulty originate here, and I enjoyed the scenery along one of the them. I enjoyed exhibits on the wildlife. There are bears and mountain lions here, though I did not see any large animals during my stay.
