40 Reviews of Garner State Park
Nice park for beginners

Has water activities suck has kayak rentals and canoes. I personally didn’t rent anything didn’t do anything in the water as the time of year Emmy group went, the water was very cold.

Hiking up to their peak was very nice and not too crazy difficult as well. Good place for a family trip.

This is a must visit park

Our family has made Garner an annual trip at Spring Break. The park has TONS of activities for everyone - hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, dancing - yes I said dancing. At the pavilion around 830pm on the weekends they have a dance. A hike up Old Baldy is a must. It’s a workout but the views are well worth it. The RV sites are mostly level. The park is Water and Electric only but there are plenty of dump stations.

Great State Park

Clean and safe. Park patrol was clearly present which felt nice. Three or four dump stations made for a quick experience when leaving at the end of our stay. A lot of Day Users so expect large crowd of none overnight guests. Wi-Fi and cell phone coverage was all but non- existent. Had to drive to Park Headquarters to get Wi-Fi and that was spotty. Park store had plenty to offer but as you can imagine prices were a much inflated. Many trails to hike and the river is cool and clear.

Top Texas favorites

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.

Chill

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.
