Black Gap WMA is a 100,000 acre area operated by the Texas Parks & Wildlife. FM 2627 breaks off of US 385 and goes all the way down to a closed bridge on the Rio Grande River. La Linda, Mexico is visible from the end of the road. A mine operated there, and ore was trucked across that bridge in years past. Several parking areas are provided along FM 2627 a few miles from the Rio Grande which are nice for wildlife viewing late in the evening. The Stillwell Store and RV Park is about 4 miles east of US 385 and next to Black Gap WMA.
