Improvements Coming to Balmorhea State Park

BALMORHEA, TX (KWES) -

Improvements are on the way to the Balmorhea State Park.

Visitors were upset because the park began limiting the number of cars allowed inside.

Officials say during peak periods, park users will now be allowed to enter and park before paying the entry fee.

That should get rid of the long line of cars along the highway that are waiting get in.

The park will also be working with Reeves County to create another parking area.

Other changes may include expanding the park's registration area, teaming up with businesses to provide more parking and working with the Texas Department of Transportation to improve highway safety and park access.

State park officials say they would also like to extend operation hours but can't right now because they're short on staff.
