Total Eclipse Viewing at the Park

Come view the total eclipse with us!

The moon will blot out the entire sun for a total solar eclipse. For a few minutes, it will look and feel like twilight. You will be able to see this rare event along a line across Texas from Del Rio to Texarkana.

You will see a partial solar eclipse before and after totality (total coverage). Guadalupe River State Park will be in totality for a total of 3 minutes and 13 seconds starting at 1:33:29pm.

How to See the Eclipse

  • Make a reservation: You won’t be able to enter the park on eclipse day without a pre-purchased day pass or camping permit. 
    • Reserve day passes up to a month before your visit.
    • Reserve campsites up to five months before your visit. A 2-night minimum stay is required for this weekend.
    • A state park pass does not guarantee your entry!
  • Come early and stay late: Expect traffic delays as we anticipate visitors from across the state and nation for the eclipses.
  • Pack more than a snack: Be sure you have extra food, water and fuel in case of delays.
  • Park in designated areas only. Stay off roadways for your safety.
  • You may not be able to connect. In some areas of totality, cell phone networks and the internet might be jammed.

Other Considerations

  • Protect your eyes: We will have a limited supply of ISO-certified solar eclipse glasses for sale at Headquarters.
