Beautiful park. There is only 1 or 2 pull-thrus. Most are back-in. Lots of shade. We could see the river from our site. Very level, good electric and water pressure. This park stays full, so make reservations early. We would stay here again. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

A well kept park that is very quiet and peaceful during the weekdays. Power was good as well as water pressure. Wi-Fi worked very well. We would stay here again if we were in the area. Staff friendly and helpful. Sites fairly level. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a well-maintained, scenic, little park. It has a lot of shade trees, and the facilities are convenient and clean. The river is a short walk from the camping area. We arrived on a Sunday, and the day-use facilities were packed with people, some of them loud and confrontational. The RV camping area had no such issues. We will stay there again, but most likely not on a weekend. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a beautiful, quiet park only 45 minutes from San Antonio and one hour from Austin. If you wish to tour Hill Country, this is the place to be. The staff are incredibly helpful and the sites are inexpensive but nice. The Wi-Fi is a bit weak unless you are close to the washroom. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had purchased the Texas State Park annual pass for $70 which gave us four 1/2 price camping nights. Without the pass, there is an additional day use fee of between $4 and $8 per person per day which makes the camping rates at the state parks too high. Our site was #6, a FHU 50 amp paved back in site. There are some low hanging branches to watch out for in the park. Sites and roads are tight for big rigs. There was free wi-fi available, but it was quite slow. This is a great location for visiting Hill Country attractions including the Johnson historical sites. Swimming is available in the river. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent park, clean, well kept. Sites are smaller/closer together than what we normally experience at Texas State Parks. Park staff very friendly. If you fish, check the calendar for dates when the river is stocked. We just happened to be there the day after it was stocked with Trout...the kids had a great time catching their limits. Would definitely go back, it is probably a great place to go in the summer. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful, well maintained state park. Many mature trees and the Blanco River flowing clear and cool make this park a definite place to return. There are many examples of the work of the CCC during the Depression. The hiking trails along the river are as tough or as easy as you want. The RV sites are "back in" graveled, and level. The roads in the park are well maintained. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

Park staff was very friendly. Sites were level and had a covered picnic table. The Blanco River could have used a little more flow on it but the drought in Texas has been bad. Water was still very nice and not very far to walk down to the river from our RV. I would recommend this park and we will be back! We camped at Blanco State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Love this state park. Wonderful, huge,paved sites under gorgeous live oaks. Covered picnic tables, campfire pit with grill at each site. You are not on the river, but it is an easy walk to the river and to walk up and down near it. Restrooms are in great condition and are kept spotless. The showers have plenty of pressure and hot water. Area is quiet, but you can walk to many fine dining places in 5-10 minutes. We will definitely be back. All the full hook up sites are very good, but I like ours best which was site 7. Sites 2-5 seemed to get afternoon sun and were hotter while 7,8 and 9 stayed in shade the entire day. The only bad thing I have to say about this park is that there were not any hiking trails to speak of. But for a campground experience it was tops. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate is with a Texas state park pass so we did not have to pay the per person entrance fee. This park is on the Blanco River and you can walk into town, though it is a bit of a hike. Park is nice, but the spaces are a little closer together than many state parks so more of an RV park feeling than a state park so marked it down to a 9 from an otherwise 10. Restrooms were up to date and clean. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place to stay the only negative I have is the 14 day limited stay and we had to park our tow dolly in a parking area because there was not enough room at the site. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great State Park. This was a second visit to Blanco SP. All of the sites here are nice and well spaced. The sewer hook is extra nice. It had just rained so the river was really flowing. The park rangers had also just completed a very nice bird blind for all of you birding fans to enjoy. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is immaculate, not so much as a scrap of paper on the ground. The grounds are manicured and the showers and restrooms are spotless. This is my first State Park visit, but if they are all as nice as this one, I'll be back many times. An annual pass for $60 gets you and all in your vehicles in, free plus coupons good for 4 nights of free camping. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely old campground built by the CCC: flowing river, huge sites with all the amenities, strong and free Wi-Fi, walkable to town/restaurants, quiet. Free fishing (and loaner equipment), some good geocaches, convenient to lots of interesting touring. As we drove around the area, we saw a lot of parking-lot CGs, and we were so happy to be at this nice little state park. We will definitely stay here again next time we pass through Hill Country. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.
