We visited Blanco on May 30 right after the flooding. The park was still closed off but you could see from the road all the trees down and debris. My heart goes out to the park and the community.

We've been here multiple times, and it's one of our favourite parks. Very inexpensive camping and high quality. The screened in shelters are the best. I highly recommend it.

Blanco State Park is one of our favorite camping places. We love the fact that you are just minutes from town. Grocery stores, great restaurants, sonic (especially for the kids), antique shops, We would go every night for a half priced shake at sonic. We've never been bothered by the traffic noise or loud music. But, we sleep in a... More

Great place to have a picnic and take a dip in the beautiful Blanco river. Nice place to take in the sites of the Texas Hill Country. Blanco is a cute little town to stop and shop especially for lavender.

Texas is having beautiful weather at the moment so a trip to a state park is always a good idea. The Blanco park is small compared to some state parks but really beautiful. It has the Blanco river running thru it and you will see people fishing, bird watching, camping and picnicking. If you love state parks,you should definitely try... More

Lots of picnic tables plenty of room for kids to run- nice playground equipment. Look for Bird observation building- it's great- a small water fountain with few bird feeders and you can watch dozens of different types wild birds.

This was a family get together for a fishing, BBQ trip with the kids. The water falls were great to photograph, there is a nature trail that’s quite pretty, everyone caught at least one fish, including a large mouth bass, sunfish, not sure what else. This was a group of three families. we brought the tent to set up for... More

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
