Getting there -

FM 337 - From Vanderpool west to Leakey. From here head south on Hwy 83 through the Frio River Canyon to Garner State Park.


Garner State Park is one of the most photographed parks in the state. During the summer its visitors make it the largest "town" in the county. Besides the tree lined river, thereís a mountain view that is truly memorable. Itís a park you wonít confuse with any other.

After visiting Garner State Park head south on Hwy 83 towards Concan. RR1120 offers several picturesque points of entry. Concan has one of the most inviting accesses but the parking is limited, so try to arrive early. Stone steps carved by nature on riverbanks, white pebbles and clear water makes the Frio River very enticing.

Garner State Park Forum:

My family and I were transfered away from Home Texas 15 years ago and we were blessed to be able to return this year. Our first camping trip was this Thanksgiving at Garner State Park. As I woke on Thanksgiving Day I saw the mist moving quickly across the river in front of our campsite. The view was so beautiful, that I felt the true beauty of God's hand. Attached is a picture [above] of the river that morning. Glad to be back home in Texas. - Royce L. Milam, January 06, 2005
