Blanco State Park (Texas)

Just got back from a 3 day/2 night trip. Park is small with well spaced and level lots. Easy walk to the Blanco River for fishing and swimming.

There was only one bath house for the camping area, which during busy season could be an issue. They cleaned them twice a day, which was nice.

We will keep this one on our list to return. Overall good experience.

Yes full hookups for both 30 and 50 amps. Each site came with a nice covered picnic area an fire pit.

Thanks for the info Chris! I live in San Antonio, and I have been wanting to check it out to switch it up from our normal Guadalupe River State Park. Blanco is actually next on my list as soon as the weather gets nicer.
Did you do any hiking/ exploring? Any trails to hike around on?

There is a "nature trail" that goes along the Blanco for about 1/2 mile. Nice little walk. If you cross the low water dam (bring water shoes) you can cross and then come back up the other side of the park.


That's the only trail we explored, didn't really see anything else. Nice area to swim and fish though!

Another park that's within spitting distance for you guys is Pedernales Falls SP near Johnson City. We camped there last fall and the hiking was great.

Pedernales SP is on my list! For those Texas folks, I also got really high recommendations for Martin Dies Jr. SP in east Texas. That's where we originally were heading but the rain scared us off.

DW and I have made Blanco SP our favorite 'local' park for the last few years. We'll head there tomorrow for our maiden voyage with the new Greyhawk.

Just a short walk into town for browsing antique stores or catching a bite to eat. Our favorite memories are catching and releasing sunfish with our granddaughters who accompany us there each Thanksgiving week over the past few years.

Blanco SP has become a wonderful family tradition and we've been fortunate to have enjoyed good weather each time we visit.

Hopefully good weather will continue this week as we look forward to the short jaunt with our camp dog, KC... We'll try to get some pics posted...
