Amazing campgrounds (loved site #224, lot of trees) - secluded from all the busyness from other sites. Make sure to get there early, long waits to check-in. And keep all food put up the raccoons are fierce. :)

Garner is one of the busiest parks in Texas - lines can be as long as 3 hours to get in. Check the park's Facebook page and plan accordingly.
