Easter weekend camping is back for these San Antonio parks


After a two-year COVID-19 pandemic related hiatus, San Antonio families can finally resume the local tradition of camping in city parks during Easter weekend. On the afternoon of Monday, April 11, San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department officials announced that the park curfew will be lifted at select parks for the holiday. 

The curfew will be temporarily waived beginning at 11 p.m. on Thursday, April 14 and will resume again on Easter Sunday,  April 17. 

“We’re excited to bring back this San Antonio Easter tradition after being on hold during the last two years. Families, friends and neighbors can enjoy spending time together again, outdoors, in our city’s beautiful green spaces.” said Homer Garcia III, Director of Parks and Recreation in a statement. “We encourage visitors to do their part to ensure our parks remain clean by disposing of litter and recyclables properly. Whatever you pack into the park, please remember to pack it out.”

While not all San Antonio parks will be available for camping, the most popular destinations will be open to guests pitching their tents. This includes Brackenridge Park, perhaps the most widely known and tread Easter camping venue. McAllister, Roosevelt, San Pedro, O.P Schnabel, Southside Lions, Southside Lions East, and Woodlawn Lake will also be open to holiday campers. 

Guests lodging in the urban wilderness will have access to recycling and trash bins. No glass containers will be allowed and food-contaminated waste is required to be disposed of in trash bins. Patrons are encouraged to use caution when firing up the grills and urged to remove their trash bags from the grounds at the end of their stay.
