Our thoughts are with you and our entire Texas family during this uncertain time. Texas State Parks are doing our best to provide a healthy way for you to get outdoors. Our dedicated teams across the state are working diligently to keep these special places open and safe during this difficult time.

Most state parks remain open.

However, we have made some changes to help protect the health and well-being of our visitors, volunteers and staff. One big change: starting April 1 you must purchase all day-use and camping permits online before your visit.

As you know, this situation continues to evolve. More changes (including park closures) may happen suddenly. Be sure to check the Texas State Parks Alert Map or contact the park for updates before you head out.
