Boasting 317 acres of recreation and camping opportunities, Kerrville Schreiner State Park is an 80-year-old park initially built by works projects created in the 1930s. After the State Highway 173 was installed in the 1960s, the park has essentially been divided into two portions, the "hill" side and the "river" side. Different amenities occupy either side.
If water sports are what you and your dog enjoy, the riverbanks here are large enough that dogs are allowed provided they're on a leash. Fishing is available along the river, provided you’ve acquired the prerequisite licenses and bring your own equipment. Swimming is prohibited for both humans and canines.
The amphitheater occupies the river side of the park and can house up to 220 individuals at full capacity. During the summertime, the amphitheater hosts "Movies In The Park" which are free to all. Dogs are welcome, on leash provided they aren't too disruptive.
In 2000, the Friends of Kerrville Schreiner State Park funded the installation of a butterfly garden. Four milkweed-laden paths lead to a center point with a fire circle, complete with benches. These trails are specifically designed to attract migrating species, which is why in 2006 the Kerrville-Schreiner Butterfly Garden was certified as a Monarch Way Station. Dogs are strictly prohibited from this part of the park.
There are 23 mini-cabins available for rental year round. Each of these come complete with bunk beds, a full kitchen, and air conditioning. The units were refurbished in 2008, after which time wifi became available for all cabins. Canines are allowed in these units by special request only. For more information, you can contact the Kerrville Registrar’s office. While no dog areas exist, there are several dog stations located throughout the 7 miles of paved trails running throughout the area. Park officials request that all dogs stay leashed on park grounds at all times.
