Celebrate Independence Day with nature's naturally star-spangled banner!

No fireworks here, but we'll still have a light show like no other! From our home sweet home planet, we'll check out other planets in the solar system. We'll see stars in our own galaxy and peer at galaxies far far away. We may even catch a glimpse of the center of the Milky Way.

As an International Dark Sky Park, Enchanted Rock boasts some of the darkest skies in this part of Texas, which means the stars at night ARE big and bright deep in the heart of Texas. Feel free to bring your own telescope or camera.

Location Telescope will be set up in the Lower Parking Lot. There is no hiking as part of this program. Please park in the Summit Parking or RV Parking lots.


  • Lawn chair
  • Dress for the weather
  • Flashlight (preferably with a red lens; mainly for walk back to vehicle/campsite)

Entrance fee for the park is $7/person (children 12 and under are free); no additional fee to attend this program. Entry is free with a Texas State Parks Pass. No need to register, just show up.

Please no flashlights or cell phones during this event (it can take 20-30 minutes for our eyes to adjust from bright light to darkness). Red-tinted lights are permitted.

**This event is weather extremely weather dependent** check our Facebook page for the most up to date information.
