There are plenty of amazing places to camp around Texas, but this one will really make you feel like you're out in the wild. Palmetto State Park is a gorgeous state park just an hour outside of Austin that will give you the greatest scenery and outdoor experience ever.\nThe park offers visitors a chance to spend the night under the stars and to play all day in the sparkling water. They offer a variety of equipment to rent including four-person paddle boats, three-person canoes, one-person kayaks, and a fishing boat for visitors to use on the lake. Of course, if you don't want to rent out any equipment, you can score big at the lake instead. You can bring your own fishing equipment, as long as you have a state fishing license.\nThe park has 19 tent sites and 18 RV sites. They also offer a group camping site that their website claim suits 99 people.\nView this post on Instagram Is this Texas?! It doesn’t happen often, but I found myself with one of those very rare days with nothing on my calendar. I took the opportunity to hike #PalmettoStatePark and time-travelled to the pre-historic age of the dinosaurs. Thankfully I didn’t happen upon any velociraptors. #TXStateParks #XT2 A post shared by A. Eli Cohen (@ae_cohen) on Nov 11, 2018 at 4:30am PST\nView this post on Instagram Happy Sunday everyone! I had a pretty busy week, so I took a little bit of an insta-break, which was just what I needed! We headed out of the city this weekend to visit my husband’s family, and we ended up taking a few scenic detours 🌿🍃 Still can’t believe I used to live only 20 minutes from @palmettostatepark, and I’m just now exploring it! Filled with hiking trails, overlooks and lush greenery that stretches and forms canopies over the different paths, it’d be a great spot to explore in the fall 😍 . . Where are some places you look forward to exploring once the leaves change? 🍁 #lostwithlaci A post shared by Laci Lock-Gescheidle (@lostwithlaci) on Sep 16, 2018 at 1:27pm PDT\nCamping at the park starts at $12 and works its way up depending on accommodation, RVs and number of people. The park suggests you call and make a reservation for your site at least three weeks in advance.\nThe busiest times for campers to visit is anytime between March and November.\nView this post on Instagram How did we not come here before!? ❤️❤️❤️ A post shared by Harper Bush (@harpersid) on Apr 14, 2018 at 3:02pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram Silent and beautiful, with centuries old trees, Palmetto State Park #traveltexas #texastravel #afternoonwalks #texasnature #texasstateparks #palmettostatepark #springintexas A post shared by Gulara (@walkafternoon) on Apr 2, 2019 at 3:04pm PDT\n@tiara_breannembedded via\nIf you want to visit the park but don't necessarily feel like spending the night, you can visit the park for $3 from 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m\nYou can also rent a picnic pavilion for the day in case you want a designated spot to set up camp until the park closes.\nFor more information on Palmetto State Park, you can visit their website here.
