An oasis in the desert, Amistad National Recreation Area consists of the U.S. portion of the International Amistad Reservoir. Amistad, whose name comes from the Spanish word meaning friendship, is best known for excellent water-based recreation, camping, hiking, rock art viewing, and it's rich cultural history. Amistad is also home to a wide variety of plant and animal life above and below the water.

The Amistad Reservoir was formed in November, 1969 by the construction of Amistad Dam to provide flood control, irrigation, water hydroelectric power, conservation, and recreation to the area. The dam and lake are managed by the United States government and Mexico.

Amistad Reservoir is located on the Rio Grande, 12 miles northwest of Del Rio in Val Verde County. The lake straddles the border of Texas and Mexico. By treaty, Texas has rights to 56.2% of the total conservation capacity of Amistad and 58.6% of the total conservation capacity of Falcon. The fraction of the actual storage that belongs to Texas is formally determined bi-weekly by the International Boundary Water Commission (IBWC).

Amistad Reservoir is stocked with many species of fish, including Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Guadalupe Bass, and Catfish. Amistad National Recreation Area includes the land area around the Amistad Reservoir on the Texas side of the lake.
