The bloggers at Interstellar Orchard made the long haul down to Garner State Park, another idyllic park located in Texas hill country.
Garner State Park could be considered the flagship of the Texas state park system. It receives half a million visitors a year, the busiest of all the Texas state parks. Enchanted Rock’s quarter million visitors per year may sound paltry by comparison, but then think that Garner is about five times the size.
There are over 300 developed campsites (not including the cabins), and RV spots with hookups are available. The tent sites start at $15 a night, RV sites go up to $26 a night. Like E-Rock the entrance fee is $7 a person, unless you have the $70 annual Texas state park pass.
You might almost think you were visiting a village instead of a park. Garner has a gift shop, restaurant, numerous headquarters (including one specifically for geocaching), numerous day use pavilions, and 11 miles of trails are available for hiking. And if that doesn’t give you enough to do, fans of outdoor sports can enjoy the basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts.
