TX: Where to stay, what to do around Palmetto State Park

Listen to this story

Palmetto State Park is worth the visit simply because it’s unlike anything else in Texas. Here’s how to get the most of your visit.

If you’re staying in the park, know that it’s busiest from March through November. There are spaces for tents and RVs, as well as one climate-controlled cabin (it seems to book up way in advance) and a picturesque group campsite overlooking the San Marcos River.

If you’re not staying in the park and are not up for the idiosyncrasies of small-town vacation rentals (my down jacket will never recover from a run-in with a leaking plug-in room deodorizer), check out Wahwahtaysee Resort, in Kingsbury, about a half-hour drive northwest, whose gorgeously outfitted tents and riverside location embody the word “glamping.”
