Shaded, flat, quaint park of CCC era with 30 well spaced sites and ~5 sleeping shelters. Within walking distance to Blanco square and several eating places. Most sites are gravel; some are concrete, & several are awash with sand due to recent rains. Have been here at least 3 times and loved it each time!

Beautiful and well kept except there was no TP in restroom. Not over crowded either. Lots of beautiful scenery to enjoy.

Came to Blanco State park, Upon driving in paid our park fee( very minimal) got our tag. While getting it I saw Cardinals galore flying among trees & couple of Blue jays 🥰🥰🥰 drove thru areas to see where a good spot is to have easy access to water, today it was not flowing strong So there is a pool w ladder to step in but that didn't look to promising to be swimming in-- Other areas water had a medium flow So got into that water ( we bought our own floats) nice fish swimming around water murky But clear enough to see to bottom. Many picnic tables with pits . No trash cans close enough But Very Clean area I saw 3 public restrooms within Good distance of benches & water. A few people kayaking 😃😃 saw a little bit of fishing going on. Would definitely come again! GEESE, WHITE DUCKS ( use to people) came to be fed bread crumbs🥰🥰 We saw another breed of duck with 2 chicks. We got to park by a spigot So we're able to rinse off before heading back to San Antonio. No glass bottles, No Alcohol 🤔🤔Stilm Very worth trip.

We went to Blanco State Park knowing it was a small park. We didn't expect much from the trails since they weren't very long and we didn't think we'd be getting in the water because the day was pretty chilly. Our expectations were low but we were blown away. The Caswell Nature Trail turned out to be a beauty! We crossed over the dam at the far end of the trail and had lunch at the picnic tables on the other side of the river before crossing back over and finishing out the trail. It was by far an unexpected highlight and we ended up staying much longer than we intended. Great little getaway park!

Park is adjacent to calm Blanco River and has tiny dam (Falls Dam) where kids can play in water. It has campsites and screened shelters. Autumn colors are excellent.

A rather small park but it was a nice place to stop for a picnic lunch and then a short walk looping around the river. We were there on a Sunday afternoon but we had no trouble finding a open picnic table where we stopped for lunch. This is not a hiking type park but is is a nice place to stop. Certainly not a destination type place but if you are in the area worth a couple hours to enjoy being outside. We purchased a Texas State Park pass so there were no fees to enter the park and we also followed the recommendations to have park reservations.

If you like fishing or floating in the water, you might enjoy it more than we did. There is only one long Hiking trail— it is in the shade and you feel like in the wilderness. Crossing the Blanco River was fun for the whole group( adults, young adults and one teen). There are tons of picnic tables in the shade. They are not renting out floats or kayaks at this time.

Blanco State Park was a very pleasant surprise. It was beautiful and well maintained. It was relaxing and the water delightful. When in area it is clearly worth a stop.

This tiny state park is a treasure, situated on the tree-lined banks of the Blanco River. We walked from one end of the park to the other and on the nature trail felt like we were in the wilderness.
