  • There are a lot of campsites here near the river, and plenty of spaces for day travelers, too. There's very little privacy, though, so you might want to travel in an RV or splurge for cabin or a shelt...  more »

  • Great place to stay. Lots of trails and the water is crystal clear. Only thing that ruins it for me is the customer service of the front desk. I’ve been here twice and gotten the same level of rudeness. It kinda makes you not want to come back, so you won’t have to deal with them. When I checked in earlier this week there was a little kid who was playing. He was running to the window and to the desk, not causing harm or damage . Then the lady at the counter screams out “what is that!!!” , mind you she’s checking us in for our 3 day stay at the same time. I don’t like being screamed at even though it’s not directed towards me. The first time I came, for the life of me I couldn’t find where to go to pay. So I went into the place where they do reservations and asked and they (group of ladies) said oh you have to go the front there’s a counter out there. We just do reservations. So I look and don’t see. I also see another couple looking as well. So I got fed up and went back inside and told the lady again I don’t see anything, and that no one is out there. And she tried sending me out for the second time and I’m like look can I just pay for it here. She’s kinda scoffs and says yes. So I pay and Head to the park. Service is horrible! Park is great!
  • Fantastic experience. The staff and facilities we're great. I was expecting to pack out everything so it was a welcome surprise to find super clean bathrooms and showers! The part has limited admissions so be sure to make a reservation months in advance. It is well worth it though.
  • Merry Christmas from Immanuel to you & family! *** Matthew 1:18, 23, 25 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. " BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL, " which translated means, "GOD WITH US. " but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.
  • I've been camping at Garner state park several times. Though the check in process can take some time if you arrive during peak hours it's definitely worth it. You'll experience excellent hikes and great views. Camp sites can be a bit crowded, but everyone is usually nice and respectful of your space.
  • Hey, I like the park a lot, but it was *really* crowded over a fall weekend. People flocking to the park - located near Lost Maples. The camp sites are numerous and easy to get to, which draws in a lot of folks who don't normally go camping. There were a lot of church and scouts there that weekend too. Worst of all though, was the litter along the trail to the Crystal Cave was terrible. I hauled out as many bottles as I could, but draw the line at the diapers and other assorted detrius and leavings of the folks that shouldn't be in the park. And the litter in the cave was just as bad. This could be a wonderful park, but as usual, it being so visitor friendly brings people that really don't care about what damage they do. BTW, the folks in the park store were very friendly, and when alerted to a bat that was probably not well, were very conscientious about calling the rangers to come check it out. Good job, folks.
