You may hang plastic, tarps, etc., but it must not harm or mar the structure. As with all state parks, pets are not allowed inside the screened shelters or in any Texas State Park buildings.

Shelter area is not recommended for large groups due to lack of parking and common areas. A pop-up trailer less than 14 feet may be parked at the shelter. You may only park two vehicles (any motorized, or towed vehicle, with wheels, regardless of size) at each site. No vehicles will be permitted to be parked along camping loop except for unloading. Any additional vehicles will have to park at designated excess vehicle parking areas, which are a few hundred yards away.
