Dana Peak Park Pass

Stillhouse Hollow Lake

Dana Peak Park is open March 1 - Sept 30. Park hours are from 6 am to 8 pm daily. Due to the area's popularity, the park may close due to overcrowding. You are not guaranteed re-entry if you leave the park and the park closes.

This location is available on a first-come, first-served basis only. Visitors are required to physically arrive at the park to purchase an Activity Pass. Once on-site, follow the posted instructions and pay for your Activity Pass by scanning the QR code using the Recreation.gov mobile app. Download and sign into the free Recreation.gov mobile app on Android or iOS prior to your arrival as some remote areas have limited cellular service: https://www.recreation.gov/mobile-app 

Please be advised, waterborne structures such as water slides are not permitted. Also, new lake policy requires a lake activity permit for the use of inflatable structures such as inflatable slides, bounce houses, or moon bounces. Lake activity permits can be requested through the Stillhouse Hollow Lake Office Monday through Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm at 254-939-2461. 

Small swimming pools are permitted in the park. Swimming pools may not exceed a water depth of 5 inches, height of 7 inches, width of 48 inches and length of 48 inches. Swimming pools must be moved to a new location each day to prevent damage to the ground surface.
