Looking for a good spot to view the complete solar eclipse on April 8?

Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) will open reservations for day passes at 8 a.m. Friday, March 8.

Create an online account as soon as possible now, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) said. If possible don’t wait until Friday morning.

Have a backup plan ready if your first park choice isn’t available, TPWD said.

Heavy online and phone traffic is expected and the public is asked to be patient Friday.

Day passes and overnight camping reservations can be booked in advance for any Texas state park though the TPWD website. Through the online portal, you can narrow down your search by city, activity and even by site. If you want to bike, hike or fish, you can see which parks have day passes available (up to 30 days in advance). For overnight camping, you can also search the “Camping This Weekend” tab and see which parks have sites open for the upcoming Friday and Saturday.

GRSP is located at 3350 Park Road 31, Spring Branch. For more information call 830-438-2656 or visit the park’s Facebook page.
