The Jungle-Like Area Of Texas That You Have To Experience For Yourself

Considering our state is nearly 900 miles across, an incredible amount of ecological diversity is to be expected. That being said, most people don’t know we have a park that resembles a lush, tropical jungle. Palmetto State Park in Gonzales lets you escape into paradise without leaving Texas.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

You’ll find Palmetto State Park at 78 Park Rd. 11 S, Gonzales, TX 78629. Click here for a printable map of all the trails.
