Palmetto State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Premium sites here sit on a peninsula formed by a bend in the wild and scenic San Marcos River.

Surrounded by early Texas history, Palmetto State Park is 10 miles from of Gonzales, where one of the most famous events on the road to the Alamo occurred, which led to the eventual independence of Texas.

As you approach the refectory, you pass through backwater areas of palmetto plants, which seem out of place in this part of Texas, but still thrive in this environment of heat, humidity, and heavy spring rainfall. After you park, return to the Palmetto Trail, but do watch for snakes and poison ivy, which also enjoy this tropical paradise. Be sure to pick up the Palmetto and River Nature trails guidebook at the trailhead."
