The water was awesome, since they have had a lot of rain. Bathrooms were dirty, and only one person in the office. A little crowded, but everyone was polite.

This park was clean, beautiful to look at and drive thru. Picnic pavilions at each space are wonderful and nice looking too. Park Rangers were helpful and courteous. AND, there's a wonderful donut shop next door!

There are still quite a few parks I have yet to visit, but I’ve found myself going back to Blanco almost every time I’m in the hill country. Great place to hike or fish, or just to relax. Excellent location as well.
