No surprise really:  http://www.darksky.org/big-bend-ranch-state-park-named-worlds-newest-international-dark-sky-park/

“The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and IDA are proud to announce that Big Bend Ranch State Park (BBRSP) has been designated as an International Dark Sky Park. It is the fourth Texas State Park to receive the honor, joining neighboring Big Bend National Park, which received IDA accreditation in 2012. Together, they form one of the largest contiguous areas under dark-skies protection in the United States.”
