Del Rio bills itself with "Explore Del Rio, Home of Lake Amistad." It is the seat of Val Verde (green valley) County with more than 3,000 square miles. Abundant hunting is available for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, javelina, dove and quail. Enjoy fishing, boating and water sports on Amistad Reservoir. It is home to Southwest Texas Junior College and Sul Ross State University Rio Grande College.
With about 400 archaeological sites, the area is among the nation's richest in aboriginal cave paintings. See Amistad National Recreation Area and Seminole Canyon State Park in LANGTRY.
