State Parks: Garner Open for Business

Friday, May 11th, 2012

This is Passport to Texas

Garner State Park, about an hour and a half west and north of San Antonio, has been a favorite outdoor destination for generations…and it shows; or did. Newly renovated cabins are ready for visitors. Our State Park Guide, Bryan Frasier has details.

54—We’re so proud to be able to announce the CCC built Cabins have been fully restored—all 17 of them. They’ve been closed for several months—we’re approaching about a year where they’ve been closed. Well, now—as of Memorial Day—they’re going to be open. And they received a total facelift from new roofs to new fixtures, to restrooms…and people are going to love what they find in these cabins. And they accommodate about six people. And we want to encourage people to make reservations there as far in advance as they can, because these have been popular, and they’re going to be even more popular now that they have a real spiffy new coat of paint and renovations. And these are full service cabins…and to be at Garner, which is traditionally our most visited state park…people have been waiting. And it’s so good to be able to tell people that the CCC build cabins at gardener State Park are open for business.

Thanks Bryan. Make reservations when you log onto

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet, supporting outdoor recreation in Texas; because there’s life to be done.
