Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock here each year to enjoy Garner's matchless vacation facilities. They swim in the clear waters of the Frio River, shoot its rapids on inner tubes, rent paddle boats, and hike its fascinating nature trails. On long summer evenings, young folks (and the young at heart) meet at the concession building for jukebox dancing every night during the summer season. Nearby is a miniature golf course, which is lighted for nighttime playing. Meals and snacks are served in the concession building, though many families prefer to take advantage of the many camping sites and do their own cooking. A limited number of cabins are available for rent. The park offers camping, hiking, nature study, picnicking, canoeing, fishing, swimming in the Frio River (unsupervised), seasonal miniature golf, paddle boat and kayak rentals (mid-March through Labor Day weekend), and bike riding (surfaced).
My Family really enjoyed our stay in Garner last September. The river is nice, cool and relaxing. There is some great hiking with fantastic views and caves. Although we had picked up a lot of trash thrown on the trail and the caves are covered in graffiti. so sad such a beautiful area I wish my kids could have enjoyed the caves before they were ruined.
Best park in Texas. Come during the summer and enjoy the dance. Clear, cool water make you forget it is HOT outside.
Best place to get away to!!
Wonderful park and location
One of the most beautiful and famous parks in Texas. The water is gorgeous and every Saturday night there is a huge dance during the Summer. How anyone could rate this less than 5 stars is crazy!
