      River access permits from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are required for paddling Colorado Canyon. Permits are available for a small user fee of $ per person, which can be paid at the Barton Warnock Center () in Lajitas or at the west entrance to Big Bend Ranch State Park at Fort Leaton ().   Info: () ; provided by David Elkowitz, Chief of Interpretation and Visitor Services, Big Bend National Park.
