Water is usually pretty clear and the fishing is hit or miss. I landed my second largest bass here and in the 50-60 times I've visited there are only a couple I can recall not catching a decent fish. Some chicken liver on a small circle hook at the bottom of the last dam downriver and you can catch channel... More

It is not very big but it is pretty. We walked the nature trail and my two kids really enjoyed it. I wish it would have been a little warmer and I would have liked to swam in the river.

Park is all about the river. We enjoy walking our dog around the green space. RV-camping area is always clean and well maintained. The staff is professional and friendly. We take our grandson fishing and to throw stones into the water.

After lunch at the nearby Red Bud Cafe, we walked along the city park and onto the Blanc State Park which is set along the river that flows through town. It is a beautiful setting, well maintained. There are lots of picnic tables, and this would be a great spot for a relaxing meal.

We were in town for an event and needed a place for the kids to play and frolic in between our scheduled events. This park is very beautiful, has nice banks for fishing, and a very fun eco-style play area for two different age ranges. Also, the geocaches in the park are creative and well cared-for. All around, it was... More

This is a relatively small US state park and, unless you are planning to camp there, not really worth a trip. However if you are in the area and want to enjoya walk or run in beautiful surroundings it is a great spot, dominated by the Blanco River curving through it. If you are in early in the morning the.... More

We came here to float and lay in the Blanco River and ended up staying for quite a few hours. The park is quiet and well-maintained and the river was cool and clean. The outdoor public areas (restrooms, tables, grills, etc.) were very well taken care of. This was our first visit here, but won't be our last!

We were actually staying the week at Pedernales Falls State Park, which I HIGHLY recommend. We visited Blanco because the fishing at Pedernales Falls wasn't that great. It was a little better here and there were a lot of people fishing. Some floating the river. I'm not sure that we actually saw all of the park or not, but what... More

We enjoyed our time at this park. We got in some fishing and swimming. Looks like a great place to camp or pull up an RV as well. We saw lots of people making a vacation out of it. Park and restrooms were very clean as well.
