    Nothing to do. Was not interested in the water. Where we went, we were at the edge of the park. Only one readily accessible geocache. Blistering heat made it a pain to walk where there was no shade. I...  more »

    We had to go to Garner State Park to see why everyone raves about it. The park is very beautiful with hills and beautiful clear water. There is a lot to do because they have paddle boats, putt putt go...  more »

    What a poorly run state park. We waited 4 hours just to get checked in on a Sunday afternoon. We made reservations online so I don't understand the reason for the ridiculous delays in getting checked ...  more »

    One of the prettiest state parks I've been to. The sycamores change color in the fall and it looks great next to the river. In the spring/summer the live oaks and pecans etc blow up. Great trails, views, camping. I'd recommend booking a cabin, they are awesome even if they cost a little more. You do have to book way in advance though; they fill up fast especially on big days (though I'd also recommend going when it's less crowded so you have more space , it's pretty dang busy on big days/weekends )

    We LOVE this place!! Our family of five has camped here on multiple occasions over the years. Our kids are grown and have families and we still return. This is a very clean, family oriented camp ground. We have even done a few BIG family (15+ people) outings here. Always having a GREAT time!! BTW - we are a racially mixed family, never had a problem or refused service.

    The river was cool and clean. The grounds where beautiful. There are allot of people not a many as i thought there would be for peak holiday weekend. Will be going back today early. Lots of things to do. We are gonna hot the trails today. There's suppose to be a cave gonna see if we can make it. The trail level is challenging. If We can't there are other trails to try. Then another cool dip in the river.

    Worst hotel ever! There was dirt everywhere, animals and bugs too! Trash pandas broke into my trash and refrigerator. Terrible room service, the beds were never made and no breakfast in bed. The air conditioning was broke as well. Somebody set the fire alarm off as well and got my stuff wet. Worst hotel ever; best state park ever. Very nicely kept and many activities to do. Lots of wildlife to watch and miles of trails to hike.

    Great views from Mt. Baldy. The state park has enough trails that are close to the camping areas to keep you busy for at least two days of serious hiking or up to four if you go slow and take your time. The Frio River is absolutely gorgeous. The water is so clear and there are some really beautiful spots walking along its banks. They also have kayaks and paddle boats you can rent. This river is also a great spot to go tubing during the warm months.
