Two new features of the Texas State Park online reservations website will make it easier to camp this summer.
Spontaneous park-goers can now make same-day overnight camping reservations online. Same day-reservations are only available for camping, however.
Previously, same-day reservations could only be made by contacting the park directly.
News from around the state of Texas.
A new "Camping This Weekend" tab will show visitors where camping sites, trailer sites, and lodging is available for the coming weekend.
Texas State Park also began a new "no show" policy on June 1 for overnight campers staying more than one day.
Anyone who does not check-in by noon of the day after the scheduled arrival date will have their reservation canceled with all fees other than the entrance fee forfeited.
