If Bastrop State Park is Paradise Lost, then Palmetto State Park is Paradise Found.
This small state park is a little, lush garden dense with Palmettos. There are numerous trails that form a "tangled mess", but each trail is nice in its own way. They are well-marked and easy to follow if you use the trail map provided by the Park HQs.
The park itself has numerous amenities, including a nice lake where you can swim, fish, or boat, making it a great place to take family and friends. The camp sites here are primo. There is a scenic walk over the San Marcos River.
