El Palmar National Park is a protected reserve in the Central West part of Entre Rios province in Argentina. It covers a modest area of 85 square kilometers intended for protection of endemic Yatay palm trees (Syagrus yatay) that grows here. In the past forests of these trees grew in several Argentinian provinces including Entre Rios, Chaco, Corrientes, Santa Fe and many others. However overgrazing and agricultural growth drove these palms to near extinction The main water source on El Palmar National Park is Uruguay River along with smaller stream and creeks that flow into it.
