Just say, “Wow,” when you get there. Blanco State Park has it all: spring-fed waterfalls, calm swimming areas, a river stocked with fish, campgrounds and more.

Each winter, the Blanco River is stocked with rainbow trout, providing anglers with a place to land some feisty fish on a regular basis.

The park also is a great place for camping, swimming, picnicking, hiking, nature study and boating (electric motors only). You can rent tubes, canoes and kayaks. There is a park store with clothes, gifts, souvenirs, field guides and educational items.

You also can borrow fishing equipment as part of the Angler Education Tackle Loaner Program. What more could you ask for?

The park is located just off U.S. 281 on the south side of Blanco. For more, call (830) 833-4333 or visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department park page for Blanco State Park.
