The Devils River is the cleanest, clearest and most pristine of any river in the State of Texas, so much so that it is used as the standard for water quality in the State.
Devils River State Natural Area, managed by TPWD, has the best access points and campsites along this gem, we can take you on a guided trip down to experience this unique watershed.
Access is strictly limited to 12 people per day so advance notice is required. Angell Expeditions requires a 4 person minimum for a 4 day trip. Longer trips can be taken but less than 4 days becomes a struggle to enjoy the river. Please contact us for pricing, they will be higher than our standard rates. This trip is only for the physically fit, some paddling experience is required and portage past some rapids is required.
