This is one time you definitely want to follow the crowd

Approaching Garner State Park on a summer's day, you'll realize you're not alone. It's super-popular, and from the moment you step inside the park you'll see why. Think gorgeous canyon landscapes, cool river swimming, lively campgrounds, and nightly dances throughout the summer. A Garner State Park vacation rental has a totally individual vibe. It's chilled out and buzzing at the same time, and its popularity is a big part of its character. Float lazily downriver in a tube, sip lemonade in the old pavilion, make a load of new friends, and think long and hard about staying here forever.

Care to dance? Why yes, we do!

Outdoor activities reign supreme in this little piece of Texan paradise. A Garner State Park vacation rental gives you almost unlimited opportunities to hike, bike, paddle, or fish. There's also a neat set of ranger programs to help you get to grips with the history and ecology of the park. A really cute quirk of Garner State Park is the nightly dances in the old pavilion, which have been going since the 1940s. They take place every night from late May through early August, and they sometimes turn up in the off-season too (like round Spring Break time).

In case you want to leave the place you'll never want to leave

A Garner State Park vacation rental is about keeping it simple. Aside from the campgrounds and cabins, there's a 1930s pavilion offering food, drink, and souvenirs. Add in mini golf and kayak/paddleboard rentals, and that, as they say, is that. If you feel like you need more, then the city of Kerrville is an hour's drive away, featuring the Museum of Western Art, and the quirky replica, Stonehenge II. Venture an hour further afield, and you hit the big city in the form of San Antonio, complete with Seaworld and all the Alamo history you can shake a Bowie knife at.

Keep your cool with a Garner State Park vacation rental

What was Baz Luhrmann's most important piece of advice? Wear sunscreen. The prevailing winds in Garner State Park tend to keep things a bit cooler than you might expect, but all the same, in the summer season it's going to be hot, hot, hot, and humid to boot. Not, of course, that any of that will matter because you'll be in the water. As for winters, expect them to be cool, but not particularly icy. The main thing is that the park is much quieter, with a very different vibe to the summer months.

The Hills have eyes. And they belong to some rare wildlife

Up in the distinctive Texas Hill Country, and along the Frio river, Garner State Park is a land of plains, cliffs, and canyons, characterized by rough granite and limestone. And you might think this little slice of Eden is popular with travelers, but wait until you see how popular it is with the wildlife. Mammals like deer, skunk, and raccoon abound, but it's among the flora and the birdlife that you'll find the real rarities. In fact, there are 2 super-rare local bird species that you'll only find between March and July. Bring your binoculars.
