State Parks Begin to Reopen

Check the Texas State Parks Alert Map for updates.
After weeks of closures, many State Parks are once again open for day use.

While not all parks will immediately open, those that do have new restrictions in place.
  • Don't plan on just showing up at the gates. All visitors must purchase and print day-use permits through the Texas State Parks Reservation System or by calling 512-389-8900. 
  • Overnight camping is currently unavailable.
  • Group gatherings of more than five people is prohibited while inside the parks.
  • All visitors must wear masks or other face coverings.
  • Social distancing of 6 feet is still in effect for individuals outside your party.
  • Bring everything you might need, allowing local businesses to focus on serving their own communities.
  • All transactions, equipment rentals or loans and interpretive programs remain suspended.
  • Group-use facilities as well as visitor and nature centers remain closed.
Make sure you are following all public health recommendations when traveling to a state park, and remember that parks in rural areas may have limits on available resources and local health care capacities.
