A herd of longhorn cattle is based here, and there is a semi-annual longhorn roundup.The Big Bend Ranch manages of frontage along the Rio Grande, and river rafting is popular here. Away from the river, visitors can hike, backpack, go horseback riding or enjoy mountain biking in the Big Bend Ranch's substantial backcountry. The park is open year round and an admission fee is charged.FloraDesert vegetation dominates the park including lechuguilla and grama. Other common plants include sotol, ocotillo and mesquite.
