  • We no longer have a travel trailer, but try to come here a couple of times a year. Wonderful place to swim. Don't miss out on this great swimming & picnic spot.  more »
  • Love Blanco state park. However, I wanted to cancel a reservation due to rain and thunderstorms, but they would not give me my money back.  more »
  • This park is small but other than holidays it's nice. There is a St Rt close but when we camped here last year it was not an issue for noise.  more »

  • 1st time my wife and I visited was today. Absolutely loved the experience! Clean restrooms, plenty of shade and basic amenities, @ $5 per person you can't go wrong. We will DEFINITELY be back with the kids and grandchildren!
  • Went for the day the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. We found parking at the end. It was quiet and nice. Families were there. No alcohol allowed so it was a nice time without the obnoxious tubers. $5 entry fee was awesome - 12 and under free. Water was awesome. We are hoping to camp there soon.
  • Swam two laps from dam to bridge, about 1 hour, cautiously since these were new waters for me. Goes from deep to shallow, 2' to deep to shallow. The shallows are smooth silty rock ledges. One can swim right up to dam and hang out. Tent campsites have pads, showers are spacious with good shower heads and plenty of water. There are some nice screened shelters I would like to try. I may not like Texas politicians, but Texas Parks has done this right. Thank you.
  • A beautiful "pool" to spend the hot summer days at. It's hardly ever full if you come very early. It's around the start of the afternoon where people start flooding in. Be careful though, there ARE some fairly small to so-so medium fishes that are super sneaky and will try to nip you if you just stay still the waters. Other than the fish problem, this place is really breathtaking and it's a perfect start for the many places to take a dip in around Texas.
  • We rented an rv space for the water and electric connections, great spot. Clean and friendly. Will definitely come again! ^-^
