Nice small park with a unique entry thru the river. Paved roads, sites are level and well spaced. Not much reception for OTA TV service. Trees needed to trimmed up to clear class A motorhome. Sits along the river but you can't see the water from the sites, just a short walk. Would stay here again.
Good place to stay while enjoying the Texas Hill Country. Relatively close to many towns for antiquing.
The campground is fairly small with some sites close together. Try to reserve a site along the back loop if looking for a little privacy. No issues with any hook ups. Verizon worked good. Blanco River runs through park with dams, a swimming area, plenty of spaces to fish and picnic. There are trails along the river which are great for walking. The very charming town of Blanco is about a half mile away with a path from the campground to the town square. Really fun small specialty shops, the courthouse museum and great places to eat. Friday nights there is a community music jam in front of Lavender and Leather. There was also music at the Red Bud Fri and Sat. Great place to step back into an all American town, visit with locals and just enjoy. This is a great place to relax and take in the beauty of Blanco, Blanco River and the park.
Loved the space between sites and loved the trees. Nice areas to fish. There was swimming but it looked like all the regulars had that covered. Restrooms were not kept up. Day use. Over all, it was a good place for a couple days away.
We enjoyed this park. The sites are spacious, and they have covered picnic tables. The campsites do have to share the restroom facilities with day users so they tend to stay dirty, but the shower area isn't too bad (shower areas are by code access only). Park rangers and park hosts were active and helpful. We did not experience people driving fast within the park. We enjoyed biking (just the loops), swimming, and kayaking while there. They recycle aluminum, cans, glass, and plastic, and recycle boxes are near trash dumpsters. The park itself was very clean. Rangers and hosts were friendly and helpful. Park was quiet at night. We had fun and didn't want to go home. We will definitely be back.
We camped at this park in late June of 2018. This is a small state park, but it has a lot. The river is clean and provides good swimming, kayaking/canoeing, and fishing. There are two small playgrounds. One has only swings, and the other has a slide and swings. Blanco SP has both partial and full hook-ups if you're camping. The full hook-ups (electric, water, and sewer) are on the inside of the loops; the partial hook ups (water and electric only) are on the outside of the loops. The sink and toilet areas of the bathroom were not clean, but they were small and were shared with day users. The shower areas of the bathrooms had an access code for campers’ use only, and they were significantly cleaner. Park hosts and park rangers were friendly, helpful and active within the park. Park ranger at check-in helped us choose a good site for us on the map; park hosts drove around quite a bit, visited with guests, and really seemed to work hard at keeping the park safe, clean, and nice. Campsites were very clean. Most sites were spacious and shady. Much of the time, we didn’t even need our awning. Most, if not all, campsites have covered picnic tables. I’ve read other campers’ complaints of the park being too close to the highway and that they heard highway noise, but I don’t recall it being a problem. If we were on the river, we heard really big trucks when they drove over the bridge, but I don’t recall hearing anything at night over the a/c. It certainly didn’t keep us awake or keep us from enjoying the park. We enjoyed our stay here, and we have already booked another stay here later this year.
Super quiet state park with lots to do. River is great for swimming and kayaking. Blanco town center is an easy walk with multiple dining options. I showed up without reservations mid week and it was no problem.
