No complaints about the rest stop for they serve their purpose and manage to be reasonably clean which is the best part

Clean as always, the only bothersome thing is if you are traveling alone with your pet and you need to use the restroom yourself you have to lock your dog up in a hot car. South Texas get very hot quick.

Nice area to stop by and stretch your legs! The restrooms are clean and its never extremly crowded. Me and my family stop here on our way from Alice.

I stop here every time I travel from Houston to the valley. They have a pretty nice trail going through at both ends. Gives you a chance to walk around and actually enjoy your time.
Towards to south end of the picnic area there's a bee tree. That's worth stopping to see by itself. There's wild flowers, a frog pond, cacti and birds. It's not uncommon to see Mexican Eagles here.
Plenty of handicap parking and rest room signs also include braille. A lot of picnic area, including many that are covered, making this a great place to picnic even on rainy days.
Police and Border Patrol are through here often throughout the day and night as there is a Border Patrol check point just south a few miles and a weigh station north a couple of miles. Very safe place to stop for the day or night. Also has security cameras in place and the area is well lit.
Good place to bring children to take on the trails and to enjoy nature in a safe environment. Sadly, there is not a playground here but there is plenty of room to roam.
Most of the year, there are a lot of different wild flowers and normally see many different types of butterflies. I think that the wild flowers are in season from late February thru late November.
All and all, my favorite place that I visit almost weekly.

I don't mind stopping here at all. It's got a lot of walking space. It is between highways so you exit to the left for it. I don't drive long distance often so it was a first for me. The restrooms could use a little remodeling or cleaning but for the most part it's a great rest stop. A lot of cops in the area as well as it's not far from a check point. Maybe about 5 miles.
