Amistad National Recreation Area is the United States portion of International Amistad Reservoir, formed on the Rio Grande along the border of the US and Mexico. The reservoir is known for excellent water-based recreation and is surrounded by a landscape rich in prehistoric rock art, a vibrant border culture, along with a wide variety of plant and animal life.
Most visitors come to Amistad for world-class fishing and boating, but there are a variety of other activities both in the park and surrounding area. For example, spectacular prehistoric Native American paintings are accessible by boat or by foot.
