The Blanco State Park is one of the prettiest state parks in Central Texas. I had a shady site close to the park hosts. They invited me to visit and watch their campfire. Just what a campout should be like!

Blanco State Park is 104.6 acres along the Blanco River in Blanco County. The land was deeded by private owners in 1933 and the park was opened in 1934. The area was used originally as a campsite by early explorers and settlers. A spring in the park made the location ideal when the river was dry. Original developments were made by the Civilian Conservation Corps (C.C.C.). Activities include camping, swimming, picnicking, hiking, nature study, boating (electric motors only) and fishing. Tube, canoe and kayak rentals are available at the park.
