Always a pleasure returning to relax and enjoy the scenery. Water is clear and always refreshing to get in on a hot summer day.

Beautiful, popular campgrounds on the Frio River

Very popular park for overnight camping and day trips. Full hookups, multiple camping areas, river and trail access, playgrounds for the kids and a on site store. Great place to hike, swim, tube and/or kayak. These sites fill up fast especially during the summer months so be sure to reserve in advance.

Great Riverside Campground

This is a very popular and large state camp ground. The facilities are well maintained and the front office does a good job managing the large crowds. We camped here in March of 2019. The weather was perfect and a bit cool at night. The crowds go way down on the weekdays. So Sunday through Thursday is your best bet if you are look for some quite time. The river is the highlight at the park. The water is crystal clear and runs strong after the spring rains. We spent two days swimming and hanging out on the shoreline.


Clean and huge campground. Campsite was really nice, 1 min to the river! But it’s far from everything, I don’t know if a detour it’s worth it…

Fantastic campground

This is the best campground around. Great campsites. Lots to do. Great store. Cabins! The Frio is the best.

Frio River, amazing hikes!

When we stayed we only stayed the day in the park at a drive in site. This was due to the weather was still a bit cold to break out the tent for an overnight. We did day camp with our tent and jet boil right by the water. I can see this place would be quite busy during the hot summer days we the frio right through the park. They did have options for cabins which we looked at which were very nice! This would be a great spot for summer but make sure to book early.

Great Family Fun

The floating, tubing and swimming are great! There are several hiking trails with awesome views. The park is crowded most of the summer, especially weekends and holidays. Planning ahead is essential, but the new day use reservations will make things easier. We gave camped and visited Garner for over 40 years.


This is a beautiful park west of San Antonio . The water is clear you can see your toes. Rocky bottom so you need water shoes. Gets very packed . I love it!

Garner State Park , November 2018

This park is great for families, so much to do here. We tent camped two nights here in November 2018 and loved it. The Frio river can be heard from most campsites providing a nice relaxing experience. There are many bathrooms with showers, all very clean. There are plenty of stores, a food truck, kayak and paddleboat rentals, mini golf, a laundromat, and great challenging hiking trails. We hiked to old baldy and to both caves, all trails were marked well.

Best park I've been to so far!

The best thing about this area was the view I could get at the top of mount Baldy. Such a gorgeous sight and a fun climb up! The park was clean, people were friendly, and the area I camped at wasn't in Garner (the sites right across the river) but it was still a great spot next to the river. Only downside was when we went to go floating, the water was super low, but that won't stop me from going next year! Because of the all the different activities you can do, there's never a dull moment!
