Named “Los Brazos de Dios” (the arms of god) by the Spaniards, at 840 miles, the Brazos River is the longest river in Texas. It is a long, slow flat water stream and the Upper Brazos, where the hover-in will be hosted, has lots of sand bars, occasional class I rapids and 500+ foot tall cliffs of Texas granite. The Brazos River is a throwback to the days of old when the Comanche's roamed the area and some of the best stories of the "old west" originated from this area of Texas. It remains largely undeveloped and is perfect for hovercrafting.

 


 

 

If you are a catfish lover, the Catfish Cafe has wonderful catfish prepared a variety of ways (you gotta try the Memphis style with the pecan crust!).


 

There is plenty of RV and tent sites and a few park model RVs set up that can be rented. There is plenty of flat sand for beaching your craft.


 


The weather is generally picture perfect in the fall. The Brazos River Campground charges a $4 per person access fee for each day.  So, mark your calendars to enjoy some Texas hospitality and a have great time flying the Brazos River.


Directions: Located approximately 45 miles west of Fort Worth, the Brazos River intersects with Interstate 20 and is easy to find.

Take exit 394 and follow the service road until you see the sign for the Brazos River Camping Resort.
