Here's our take of the park itself: the people at the park HQ were super friendly and very helpful with all my questions about hikes in the area. The showers by the pool were nice , but sometimes had a lengthy wait to get into one of the 3 shower stalls. , laundry right next to the showers were very nice as well and we didn't have any trouble using the machines. The pool was nicely maintained and the kids really enjoyed spending their afternoons here after hiking. Cons: this park isn't really equipped to handle some of the modern RV's. The sites are tough to maneuver with the large rigs, and just wasn't a good fit. The roads just getting here are curvy, hilly grades with switchbacks and twists along the way. One you turn into the park , and check in at the office, you must again travel up more curvy and twisty road to get to the sites. One lesson we learned once we got there, I had booked an rv site with electric only. My mistake for not paying closer attn that we didn't have water hookups, so when we inquired about it, they said the water was at the bottom of the park back where the office was, so my husband had to the make the trip again to fill our tank. Sites are almost all uneven, some more than others. Which I'm surprised that some spots they even allowed Rvs into knowing just how sloped the pavement was. The ATT signal was non existent so no wifi all week, which really was not a deal breaker for us. But I did hear that some people got Verizon in certain areas. The bathhouse near the electric sites were much to be desired , so that's why we ended up using the ones at the pool area. The park does well with tents and smaller rv' s and trailers. But the fit is just hard with the larger ones and feels a little sandwiched in once you finally get in there. The hiking in the area was top notch and was the high light of our trip. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.
Walmart was 12 miles through twisty roads, but still we felt it was an ok drive with the convinence of it nearby, just not at night. The hiking trail heads were also centralized around the park, about a 10 minute drive (give or take) to almost all of them.

Just finished our extended camping weekend at Garner State Park. We were able to get a full hook up site from a cancellation. We stayed in site 146. They are pretty close together in this one line strip of fhu. Majority of the park is electric and water. This is a very, very busy park . The scenery is beautiful, and the hiking trails were great. The tenting sites were really nice and I would have loved the tent area to be rv sites instead. There is camp store and candy store along with mini golf, and a little airstream set up for a grill. At night ,there was dancing outside the open area near the store. Also, the playground and basketball area for the kids. There is a lot to do at the park. There is a little corner store right outside the park but you have to drive 30 minutes to Uvalde for a store/walmart. We camped at Garner State Park in a motorhome. We liked the area, but the park was just too busy for our taste and the sites were too close together. We camped at Garner State Park in a Motorhome.
The area is beautiful. The park has great hiking trails and the river is right at the park, for tubing and swimming. We did some fishing, but only caught little sunfish.

Beautiful park! Right off the bat,you can tell how much they really care about the park just by the extreme upkeep of this beautiful park. We had planned on staying just one night, but we had such a wonderful time,that we booked an extra night. The sites were level gravel pull through with FHU. A very nice fenced dog run. Everyone was super friendly. The fireflies were abundant. There was ample space between the sites that I didn't feel like I was breathing on my neighbors. We would definitely stay again if we come back through the area. Not many parks deserve my 10, but this one defiantly met my standards. We camped at Cave Country RV Campground in a Motorhome.
We drove to Glasgow and ate at Garcia's Grill. The food was very good and had a lot of flavor and the service was friendly. After the caves, we ate at the Watermill Restaurant. Although the appearance both inside and out were to be desired, the buffet food was good. The waitress was attentive and the food was all home cooked. If you can over look the decor,then you'll enjoy a great meal.

This was a great rv park for our needs. we were traveling out of town during July 4th and and needed a place to stop and view some fireworks. this park gave us exactly that. We had FHU at this park. the sites were a little close together, more of a parking lot style of a park, but it was right on the river, and very nice scenic walk over the presidential bridge and over to the lively market place. Everyone was friendly and we were greeted pleasantly during check in. We would stay again. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.
