    Just returned from a 3 night stay at Palmetto State park. In spite of the cold weather (31 and rainy the 1st night, 26 the 2nd night, 44 [balmy weather, comparatively] the 3rd night, we really liked it because it is a small park. Even though all sites in the water/electric area were full, we didn't feel like we were back in the city. We plan to return in the summer when we can go tubing or canoing down the San Marcos river. You can rent tubes and canoes at the park. Plenty of small towns around, as well, in which to pick up those forgotten items! Give it a try!!

    Cheers,

    Excellent! I never would have thought of Palmetto. We camped in New Braunsfels twice last year and it was crazy! My kids were wide-eyed at the antics they saw. I've already booked Guadalupe River SP b/c you can tube from there. I'll book Palmetto also. Thanks for the tip!

    We considered Palmetto SP for Memorial Day, but decided on Bastrop SP instead. We will definitely consider Palmetto in the future. Let me know about the tubing and how much access there is to the river within the park. If nothing else our son would love to just play (supervised, of course) at the water's edge. He's not much into swimming unless it's in a pool.

    We've been to Palmetto twice, once last summer when the park was evacuated due to flooding and again last month when they were hosting a Junior Anglers workshop for the kids. I really enjoy Palmetto. It's got a small uncrowded feel to it even when filled to capacity.
