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!

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.
