South Llano River State Park In Texas Is One Of America’s Most Incredible Dark Sky Parks
Some of the darkest skies in Texas can be found at South Llano River State Park, a certified International Dark Sky Park. Our state only has four such parks, so the designation is truly a prestigious honor. Set up camp, unzip your tent, and gaze in awe at the blanket of stars illuminating the night. No telescope needed!
Visit the park’s website or Facebook page for more information, including park hours and entrance fees.
