What hours can I visit Enchanted Rock SNA?

Enchanted Rock is open 7 days a week year-round, from 8 AM to 10 PM for day use activities.

NOTE: Special Guidelines for day-use visitation: Once the park reaches capacity, usually during heavy use periods (weekends, holidays, and spring break), it will temporarily close for the day and re-open when sufficient parking is available. Visitation is being limited to protect the natural and cultural resources, to preserve the natural experience for visitors, and for visitor safety. Enchanted Rock Staff encourages people to visit during weekdays. This will not affect campers with a reservation. Save gas and time - during peak periods call 830-685-3636 before you drive! If the park is closed we suggest that you spend your wait time visiting one of the area's many attractions.
