Ever searched for Easter eggs after dark? It's fun for the whole family – and that’s no joke! Registration required.

**Update: this program has been CANCELED. Sorry for the inconvenience!**

Join us for our 8th annual Snipe Hunt at Lockhart State Park! In this program, “snipes” (decorated Easter eggs) will be hidden on park trails. Snipe eyes reflect the light of your flashlight, so join us after dark for the hunt! Registration required.

    • Registration required. Due to the popularity of this event, all participants must register to attend. Please click here to register online (follow the directions carefully) or call the state park customer service center at 512-389-8900 to register by phone. Please do not call or email the park to register. 
    • On the day of the event, check in to the park and then meet us in the park picnic area to sign up for the hunt, pick up your hunting supplies, and make your own snipe while you wait for the hunt to begin! We will have an orientation before the hunt starts. Please remember to sign out with us at the end of the hunt!
    • During sign up, each snipe hunter will be given a hunting license and glow bracelet. The hunting license allows each hunter to harvest up to 5-8 snipes on each of our colored trails.
    • If you choose to move your vehicle after the start of the hunt, your party will be assigned a parking area. Please consider carpooling to this event with other attendees.
    • Recommended for kids ages 5+. Children under 15 years old must be accompanied by an adult. 
    • Hunters should bring a snipe carrying container (bag or basket) and flashlight. A limited number of baskets and flashlights will be available to borrow on a first come first served basis. Please leave weapons and pets at home.
    • We recommend you wear weather appropriate clothing (layers), sturdy shoes, bug-repellent, and bring water. Expect to hike approximately 2+ miles during this event. 
    • This event is free with paid entry to the park. Regular park entrance fees are $3/adult, free for children 12 & under.
