October 26 A family tradition sine 1946 by mrmac
My 1st trip to Garner was in 1946.Few people
knew of its beauty then. The river was much
different, so many things have changed since
then.I started taking my kids in 1966,they now take theirs. So many wonderful memories
since those days.I still visit now and then
and will, I guess till im gone.
August 12 A FAMILY TRADITION by Laura Solis
My family has been going to Garner State Park for over 20 YEARS!!! We absolutely LOVE Garner! Every year we make it a family tradition to make it to Garner at least once a year, sometimes more if possible. And every year that we go, Garner gets even more beautiful! And... honestly, its even harder for us to return back home. It is a great place for family and friends to enjoy time away from home.
September 23 Our favorite family park. by La abuela
We went to Garner for the first time in 1972 and since then at least once a yr. This is now a family, 3 generations, tradition. The staff is very profesional and ready to help the campers. The park is clean and the area is fantastic
March 28 3rd Generation by deaftribe
My Grandfather took my Father there when he was little, My Father took me since I was 4 year old and now I still taking my Daughter there as in 4th Generations. We usually stay 3 nights there at twice a year. Garner are the best overall for camping, swimming and sit by campfire I ever had. Especially Frio River are my MAIN reason cause it is so clear and beautiful. Also I noticed every campers at Garner had a 24 hours smile in friendly way with hand waving at us. It so so perfect for us to ease our mind from all the stress and pressure.

February 10 2nd home by gracie

January 27 A Second Home by Peanut from Von Ormy, Tx
I have been going to Garner for over 40 years. I started taking my family when my oldest daughter (22) was about 7. My youngest daughter who is 10 know was 4 months old when she first went. My family including my mom and dad have always loved going to Garner. The people are kind, everyone watchers out for each other. One year we had a hail storm and we meet alot of wonderful people after that storm. People just seem to be more friendly when you are out doors. Garner is a second home for my family. Everyone tells me I should try something different, but not me I enjoy the clear water and the peacefulness. We joined the FOG (friends of Garner) and go several times a year to help with different activities. FOG helps clean the trails and helps with the river clean up. If you ever get a chance join FOG, you will enjoy meeting the people there. Garner will always be a second home for me.
January 3 Been here every year since i was little!
If there is anyone reading this in order to find out more information on the park to help them decided if this is a trip for them, dont have any doubts. Garner is really a great relaxing fun and beautiful state park. We have been going as a family since i was 5 im now 20 and we cant wait to go every year and we dont even mind the 5 hour drive from Houston!! There are plent of things to do ...hiking, biking, put put, dancing, swimming,tubing,...RELAXING...and just having fun. Its also a great place to do nothing, just sit and be grateful for what surrounds you. I highly recommend it...there is no way that you wont enjoy your stay, and i just cant wait to be there this March!! :)
August 7 WONDERFUL! by Brandi
We absolutely LOVE Garner State Park and this will be our second year going.
The park is beautiful and tubing and playing in the river is quite refreshing (but VERY cold until you get used to it). There are rope swings throughout the banks of the river and nice little rock beaches to relax on. You can get a trailer ride up river that lets you off for hours of relaxing tubing (two differnt spots for drop-off, depending how long you want to tube the river).
We went in August last year and thought it was going to be very hot and humid but the only time we ever broke a sweat was setting up the tent the afternoon we got there.
I highly recommend Garner State Park! It is very family friendly. Our daughter was 5 when we went last year and she LOVED it and is looking forward to going this year.

A beautiful get-away into the wild. There is open land to camp out. You can enjoy tents or cabins. You can also enjoy the cold river. Breath taking!!!!!!!!
