Space is limited to 60 so register for this event to secure your spots by calling the park during office hours (254) 694-3793 or email Ranger Rita.

Plan two hours for the program and to be in the viewing area early. Bring your own camp chairs if you would like or you may use the metal picnic tables spaced out in the area. Binoculars if you have them and a flash light with a red beam works best to keep the area dark.

This event will be held across from the Group Rec Hall. Follow the signs for parking and solar lights to the picnic tables. 

The event will be cancelled if temps are below 55 or raining. We will call everyone that has signed up when we have to cancel an event.

This is one of many 100-year celebration events happening in Texas state parks this year. Entry to a park is free on the day it hosts an official 100-year celebration event (applies to day passes only).  Guarantee entry by reserving your free day pass up to one month before the event.
