The terrain is mostly dry and treeless, but near the Devils River, springs gush out of the bedrock and provide sufficient moisture for groves of pecans, sycamores and spreading live oaks. Prehistoric artifacts in the area date to over 11,000 years ago, and 4,000-year-old multicolored human shapes and other designs decorate area rock shelters. More modern local Native American groups included Apaches, Comanches, Kiowas and Kickapoos. Park open Friday through Monday. Camping by advance reservation only.
