​​​​​​​​Park Alerts

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Because of the danger posed by dry conditions, LCRA periodically bans ground fires at its parks. LCRA honors burn bans issued by individual counties where its parks are located. LCRA advises that you check the Texas Interagency Coordination Center's website for a link to the latest map showing Texas counties that have issued burn bans. Burn bans in effect will be listed below, along with notices of park closures. For more information, email​ us through Contact LCRA or call LCRA at 512-473-3366.​​​​​​​

For the safety of visitors and staff, all LCRA-managed parks are closed until further notice. We are committed to doing our part to help keep the public and our staff stay safe from COVID-19 by limiting exposure to others. We apologize for any inconvenience. All reservations through April 30 are being cancelled for a full refund. For more information on the refund process, contact Reserve America.
