Oak Thicker Park posted on Facebook yesterday that they are not closing at this time. What the future is will have to wait and see.

I was out there yesterday along with a ton of other folks that were looking to escape the confines of our homes. I did not see any notice at the check in area however looking at the LCRA website they posted the following note:

"All LCRA-managed parks are closed until further notice to help protect staff and visitors from COVID-19. All park reservations through April 20 are being cancelled for a full refund. See the Parks Alerts page for a list of affected parks."

Aggie manager, that is what someone shared with me that prompted my post. My opinion is that is camping and not boat ramps, but I have been wrong a couple times this decade so ...................

Barbarian, as have I. Best bet is to give them a call and confirm with the park operator.

Here is the link to the TPWD ramp closure page:

This does not include the lakes controlled by River Authorities like LCRA or SJRA.

Hope this helps us all!
