Blanco State Park is a beautiful, small Texas State Park on the Blanco River in the Texas Hill Country. The river is cool and clear, excellent for swimming and floating. There are 31 RV sites, eight 50A with sewer, some 30A with sewer and some 30A & water. Park wifi was not available at our site. Excellent cell service with AT&T and Verizon. The river is a short walk from the camping area. Sites are all shaded. The grocery store is 1.5 miles from the park and restaurants 1/2 mile away. We have been here several times and will return. We camped in site 7 (premium site with 50A, water and sewer). We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Old 300 BBQ in town serves excellent brisket. Wimberley and Luckenbach are 30 minute beautiful drives.

This park is on the edge of Blanco, and you can walk to the town square. The park has the Blanco River running thru it, and it the CCC built a pool and several concrete dams so that people come here to lounge or swim in the water. The park is scenic, and is quite nice. The town has several decent cafes. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

Blanco, TX - Blanco State Park. We spent a week in this park while we were getting work done on our Jeep in San Antonio. This park is in town so it's an easy walk to restaurants and convenience stores. Some sites are full hookup ups. Some are water and electric. As you exit the park there are some low hanging trees that made our exit a little difficult. Most sites were long enough to accommodate our 40 ft MH. We stayed in sites 19 and 30. Both were 30 amp and water but the weather was perfect and we had shade do didn't need more than the 30 amp electricity. Lots of space between sites and fairly level. It was extremely quiet except for the resident rooster that seemed to enjoy hanging around our bedroom window in the morning. We will definitely return to this park next time we are in the Hill Country area. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Some sites have full hookup. We had one of them and all utilities worked great and we had a view of the river and falls. We camped in a motorhome and will stay again. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

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.
