Blanco State Park is a 104.6-acre (42.3 ha) park, along a mile of the Blanco River, on the southern edge of Blanco, Texas. It features camping, picnicking, screened shelters, swimming, tubing, nature trails, and a wildlife viewing station. The park is hilly with mostly cedar, and pecan trees. Among the animals seen at the park are nutria, mallards, raccoon, armadillo and squirrel.
Much of the early development of the park was done by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, including a group picnic pavilion.

On May 24, 2015 the park was hit by a catastrophic flood

  • Natural water pool, shallow and deep water, easy river access, picnic areas, camping, and relaxed tubing. Great for all ages. We love renting the giant pavilion for big parties, check website for price (~$100?). Everyday entry is just $5/person (or buy an annual pass, and it's free!). You can't beat this state park for a day in the hill country, just an hour north of San Antonio on 281. My recommendation is to go to the south shore. Less crowded and plenty of water access (although not as close to the pool).
  • Nice trail to take a short hike. Trail is about 2 miles around. Mature trees will provide you the shade you are looking for in those hot summer days. After the hike cool off in the designated areas in the river. The camping area also looks really nice and has a lot of matured trees as well.
