Things To Do

For thousands of years, people have trekked to these rock hills in far west Texas. In earlier times, they came for the rainwater pooled in natural rock basins, or huecos (͞whey-coes͟). Visitors today marvel at the imagery left by those ancient people.

At Hueco Tanks, visitors can hike, rock climb, bird watch, study nature and history, picnic and stargaze. Also available are guided and self-guided tours to view rock imagery. Stop by the interpretive center, in a historic ranch house, to learn about the park and its history. The park store at headquarters sells gifts and other items. Hueco Tanks is mainly a day-use park. However, they do have 20 campsites.

Our campground has restrooms, hot showers and a dump station. For reservations, call (512) 389-8911. Reservations are limited to three days; you may be able to stay longer if a site is available.
