This is a private park, designated for the use of Burnett Ranch members and their invited guests ONLY. Trespassers and vandals will be prosecuted.

Park Hours
The park is open for the enjoyment of our community members from Daylight to Sunset, 365 days a year. Occasionally, park maintenance or volunteer cleanup days are scheduled, which may restrict usage of the park. The park will be closed subject to bad weather and/or occasional flooding.

Persons who drive into the park, or park along the road and enter on foot, must display a current BuRanch Vehicle Sticker on the windshield of their vehicle(s). Hays County Law dictates that parking within 50 feet of the bridge is prohibited.

Visitors must be accompanied by their sponsoring member in good standing. Members in good standing are issued a key to the locked gate at the entrance. You must close and lock the gate every time you enter or leave the park area.

If problems arise regarding unauthorized visitors please call the Hays County Sheriff's department, 512-393-7896, requesting assistance at theBurnett Ranch Park, 251 Valley View, Wimberley, Tx .
