The Preserve is composed of 15 units (land and water) spread over 7 counties, so one has to drive to each unit they wish to visit. There is no public transportation in this area. Some units are accessible only by boat. The Official Map and Guide to Big Thicket National Preserve will assist greatly with navigation.
