What if it rains? Is there a rain location?

We do not have any indoor facilities for a rain site. If it rains events can be rescheduled or a refund of 50% of rental fee will be returned.

Can we BBQ or have a picnic?

We do not allow grills at the park. Food should be prepared ahead of time and kept cold or warm in appropriate containers. Events with more than 30 people require use of a Texas State Approved Caterer.

How do we secure a reservation? Is there a deposit?

To secure a reservation, you must put down half of the rental price.

Will we get our deposit back if we cancel?

Refunds will be given with a two week notice of cancellation unless in the case of rain or other emergency.

What are your hours of operation? How late can we stay at the site?

If your event occurs during normal business hours there will not be any additional fees. Overtime charges will be $25/hour for staff to be at Spring Lake if your event is not during these normal business hours. See Hours of Operation for more information. Outdoor events with music must end by 11:00 p.m. and events must not go any later than 12:00 a.m. (midnight) A one-hour break-down will be allowed after midnight.


Parking permits have to be shown from Sunday 7 p.m. to Friday 5 p.m. Visitor permits are available for $3 per day or $7 per week. Those with red Texas State University parking permits may park here without a visitor permit at all other times. The back parking lot (bus loop) is open to any Texas State University parking permit. The pay-to-park kiosk is located near the Spring Lake ticket booth.
