River Summary: The Brazos River is the longest river in Texas, stretching over 840 miles from the edge of the Llano Estacado to the Gulf of Mexico. The river's name comes from the Spanish word "brazos," meaning "arms," which reflects the many branches of the river. The Brazos River has played a significant role in Texas's history, serving as a trade route for Native Americans and later as a source of water for settlers. Today, the Brazos River Basin provides water for agriculture, industry, and recreation, and several reservoirs and dams have been built along the river to manage its flow. Some of the most notable reservoirs/dams on the Brazos River include Possum Kingdom Lake, Lake Whitney, and Lake Granbury. The river is also popular for various recreational activities such as fishing, boating, swimming, and camping.
