DELAYED OPENING

  • Mesquite Spring Campground (40 sites) is temporarily closed due to damage from two storms. A microburst wind event heavily damaged the roof of one of the restrooms. Flash flooding damaged the access road.
  • Texas Springs Campground (92 sites) will be closed until enough maintenance workers are on staff.
  • Sunset Campground (270 sites) temporarily open November 3-13, then closed again until enough maintenance workers are on staff.
