Max Capacity Closures

We experience a very high volume of visitors on all weekends and school holidays. Closures are guaranteed on all Saturdays from September through July 4th weekend. Closures also occur on most Sundays and school holidays. The line often forms as early as 8 a.m. and park closure can happen as early as 9 a.m. Once the park fills in the morning, we will issue parking slips to the next 200 vehicles. Passes guarantee a place in the park that same afternoon. Visitors with camping reservations may enter the park throughout the day. No parking is allowed on the sides of RR 965 at any time.

Check our Twitter or Facebook for closure updates or contact the park. The park office opens at 8:30 a.m.

Flashing signs on approaching roads will also alert you if the park is closed. One sign is north of Fredericksburg on R.R. 965; the other is on Hwy. 16 near the R.R. 965 intersection.
