Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

16710 Ranch Rd. 965
Fredericksburg, TX 78624

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area sits on Big Sandy Creek on the border of Gillespie and Llano counties. It is 18 miles north of Fredericksburg.

The Nature Conservancy of Texas purchased the property from Charles Moss in 1978. It later sold the 1,640.5-acre property to the state of Texas. The state bought an additional three acres to add to the park.

Enchanted Rock opened as a state natural area in October 1978.  It is a National Natural Landmark, and is on the National Register of Historic Places as an Archeological District.

More than 400 archeological sites have been found in the park. All are protected, and 120 of them are designated State Archeological Landmarks.

More than 250,000 people trek to the park each year to experience the magic of Enchanted Rock. In fact, it is one of the most visited parks in the state park system.
