Balmorhea start admissions limits start Memorial Day weekend

May 18th, 2017 under Community

BALMORHEA —  Starting Memorial Day weekend, Balmorhea State Park will be limiting its day-use visitation to 1,300 park goers per day. This change is a new effort at Balmorhea to preserve the delicate resources at the park-including some threatened and endangered species- as well as the quality of experience park visitors expect to have.

Park staff will sell 1,000 day-use passes starting at 8 a.m. at the gates. The next 300 visitors will receive a pre-counted slip allowing them to return at 3 p.m. and enter the park.

Visitors with campsite or hotel reservations will still be allowed in to Balmorhea State Park and will not count against the 1,300 visitor limit.

Closure updates will be posted on the Balmorhea State Park Facebook page and @BalmorheaSP on Twitter.

For more information about the park, visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department website.
