We have been going to Garner since I was a kid. We have stayed in the tent area and the cabin areas. Every day during the summer is a dance at night in the pavilion so bring your dancing shoes. The summer time is so busy at Garner so get there really early if you are going for a day trip. Cabins and campsites sell out months in advance. You can rent tubes but don't forget to bring old shoes for the water or your feet will hurt!
