Went there off-season and it was fairly busy. Staff and visitors were very friendly. It was very clean. Loved it that kids and parents were fishing off the banks together. Nice, but short hiking trail. Would be great for a sunny afternoon to tube and/or fish. Rentals for both are available in the headquarters.

We camped on site 7. It was an easy in easy out back in site with a hard, fairly level surface. The site had full hook ups. The park is charming with Llama at the fence and fishermen up and down the river. The staff and hosts were helpful and friendly. I would recommend this park.

It so happened that I had to be in the area on a Thursday evening to attend the memorial service of the wife of a good friend. I looked into hotels, but since I have a small travel trailer I thought I would just bring it down, then discovered that there was a state park in Blanco. The plan was... More

I love this park! Holy cow it's so pretty! It was a nice and relaxing afternoon. It looks like there is still some damage from the storm, but that didn't bother us. One of my new favorite spots!

This state park was a nice little getaway. It was a little on the smaller size, but the view of the river made up for it. Definitely a place worth visiting, but go during the week- it was less crowded then. The staff was nice, and our campsite was spacious.

Beautiful little the place to stop on the way to San Antonio and take a driving break. Usually wonderful, but 2 days ago the the area was flooded. Ok today except for a bit of mud here and there.

This park is a small, fun park for the kids. If you're here for the day, the falls is a great place for a swim during season. I would not recommend camping here. Campsites are too close to neighbors and some are even close to an open field with cows, just imagine sleeping next to cow smell. Overall this place... More

We stayed at Blanco State Park Aug 14-16th 2015. The park had just opened up a couple of weeks earlier due to the recent flood damage. We really enjoyed our stay. This was our first time to the park but we were really impressed. We stayed in our travel trailer. The spots were very spacious and included a tent pad.... More

This is a nice hidden gem in Blanco, Tx and the spots are clean and fairly shallow. For a Monday visit I thought the area was a bit, "packed" but we found some shade, set up and had a nice view for hours. Must see!
