Map for Devil

Devil's River State Natural Area - Big Satan Unit (formerly South Unit) consists of approximately 17,000 acres located about 20 miles north of Del Rio in Val Verde County. The South Unit is located off Miers Road, west of Highway 277. Objectives of the Department are to restore and maintain healthy populations of native fauna and flora in natural habitats and to provide for compatible public use. Exotics found on the park escaped from enclosures when the area was under private ownership. The exotic population is scattered and sparse. Hunting is a practical and preferred method of controlling deer and exotics to prevent them from negatively impacting the exosystem. For more information call (830) 395-2133.
