Very nice place to hike. Too busy for me during warmer weather so I'll plan another visit in the late fall.
There is something for everyone here, if you like the outdoors that is. Even after a heavy rain the water from the Frio River started to clear up in just a few hours. I stayed for two full days and still needed more time to see everything.
This park really is beautiful.
-camping (tent areas have water and power in many locations).
-small cabins
-larger nice cabins
-river fun
-mountain biking
-hiking
-a local grill with food and drinks (seasonal)
-grocery store in the campgrounds
-gift shop
It gets four stars because I like nature to be more secluded, this place is more like a vacation park than a nature conservation area.

Loved it. And didn't even get to cover close to all of the park. We started with Old Baldy and took an alternate trail down. This was my first "challenging" trail in Texas. It was steep, but really short. One of the most scenic trails I have done in hill country. We saw a Red Tailed Hawk from above! There are some great screened shelters next to a shower/restroom facility.

Great trails that vary in skill level. We went up a very challenging Crystal Cave route to Painted Rock. The cave was nice, painted rock was all about the view of the Frio Canyon and 'Old Baldy'. We went in fall and it was great. Will go back to complete more trails.

Great trails that vary in skill level. painted rock was a bust but still provided a great look out point. recommend it to everyone.

Very nice hiking trails. The trails are all intertwined into the camp grounds of the state park here, but are still enjoyable. The trails can take you far enough away from all the other activity to give you that sense of wilderness. Also Garner has a very nice little creek that has some great little places to dip into. Fun place to hike or camp with kids.
