  • Very small park so campsites are somewhat close. The main attraction is the river for swimming. No trails for hiking or biking. We camped in site 24 which is on the outside loop and backed up to a hill. Nice spot. You're also conveniently right in Blanco which is a neat little town with great restaurants and bars closeby.
  • Friendly Rangers took interest and time to explain questions. Very nice old park. The dams are very pretty and nice place to swim. Bath accommodations both very clean and supplies upkept. Grounds kept up nicely but still with nature. Very nice place.
  • Went fishing with my son. Had to cross the river to escape a bunch of unruly Southsiders with their yelping dog (annoying) tied to a tree. It used to be a quiet place to go to get away from crap like that. Should definitely charge more to keep people like that out.
  • When we evacuated 11 years ago my pop took us out there and they feed us and sheltered us and the people out there was so nice and i loved every moment out thank you for that hospitality that you all gave us my pop has past away 4yrs ago and he loved it too thank you. Gloria
  • Great water for swimming and kayaking. Very impressive showers, clean with hot water and good pressure. Nice areas for tent and trailer camping.
