The campground is small and the campsites are packed in tightly. If a kid in the campground has a stick to beat on a tree, everyone gets to enjoy it. If someone who has a dog that likes to bark, everyone knows it. (Why do...More

Great place to have a picnic, do a little walking or just hang out. Quiet, safe, beautiful site. Sit by the water and ponder life. Grab some BBQ from the Old 300 and enjoy a nice sunny afternoon here.

Stayed a couple days midweek. Nice campground. As always TPWD does a great job of keeping facilities clean and hospitable. Small playground for kids. Next to river for swimming, kayaking and fishing. Only a few blocks from downtown!

This is an older state park but its sits right on the Blanco river. Beautiful trees in the park and along the river. Lots of activities like fishing, swimming and hiking, just in a more condensed space. The campsites are good, level and well shaded....More

This is a small park with a limited amount of trails. It is very close to downtown Blanco. However, there isn’t very much to do there. The river running through the park is nice but due to dams, the paddle is short.
