This park’s remoteness makes its one of the least-visited national parks in the country, but it also makes it one of the best places to see the stars. If you are willing to make the drive, this spot has so much to offer for nature lovers and stargazers.
It is located in the historic Big Bend of the Rio Grande River, which borders Texas with Mexico, and boasts a great distance to any kind of urban civilization. This lack of residents results in some of the least light-polluted skies in the United States.
Appreciators of solitude and sweeping scenery will thrive here, and many people describe seeing the stars and constellations at the park in ways they’ve never experienced anywhere else. Big Bend National Park will take you back to simpler pioneer times, when the only light for miles was campfire, and the land was undeveloped and untamed.
