The Bosque River is about 115 miles long and flows from near Stephenville to the Brazos River just below Waco Lake. The word bosque is Spanish for woods and the river may have been named by the Marqués de San Miguel de Aguayo in 1719. Other authorities say that the river was named for a French trader, Juan Bosquet, who was living with the Tawakoni Indians in the 1770s. George Erath explored the river on an expedition in 1837 and you can too by visiting Cameron Park.
