State Park Reservations

ALERT: Sept. 25, 2020 -  Texas State Parks are open for day users and campers, but with capacity limits. We highly recommend  reserving day passes and overnight stays in advance either online or by calling the customer service center. 

We are taking camping reservations for most parks for stays beginning up to three months away. Some parks are not yet allowing overnight camping.

Some parks are taking group reservations for stays beginning up to five months away. Capacity may be reduced due to local COVID-19 regulations. Call the Group Desk at (512) 389-8920 for information.

Check the Texas State Park Map for updates on the status of parks.
