We camped at this park in late June of 2018. This is a small state park, but it has a lot. The river is clean and provides good swimming, kayaking/canoeing, and fishing. There are two small playgrounds. One has only swings, and the other has a slide and swings. Blanco SP has both partial and full hook-ups if you're camping. The full hook-ups (electric, water, and sewer) are on the inside of the loops; the partial hook ups (water and electric only) are on the outside of the loops. The sink and toilet areas of the bathroom were not clean, but they were small and were shared with day users. The shower areas of the bathrooms had an access code for campers' use only, and they were significantly cleaner. Park hosts and park rangers were friendly, helpful and active within the park. Park ranger at check-in helped us choose a good site on the map; park hosts drove around quite a bit, visited with guests, and really seemed to work hard at keeping the park safe, clean, and nice. Campsites were very clean. Most sites were spacious and shady. Much of the time, we didn't even need our awning. Most, if not all, campsites have covered picnic tables. I've read other campers' complaints of the park being too close to the highway and that they heard highway noise but I don't recall it being a problem. If we were on the river, we heard really big trucks when they drove over the bridge, but I don't recall hearing anything at night over the a/c. It certainly didn't keep us awake or keep us from enjoying the park. We enjoyed our stay here and we have already booked another stay here later this year. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Travel Trailer.

With reservations made five months prior, we arrived on a Friday afternoon is a heavy rain storm for a two night stay in the full hook up campground. Check-in ranger gave us a choice of sites to choose from (unseen) and advised that they were HOLDING one for certain site for a 41 ft fifth wheel reservation. Ranger told us Site #9 was the best of the remaining available sites, but we could select any open site, except the one on HOLD for the fifth wheel, and then call back to the Headquarters. We opted to stay in Site #9 as it was the site with the least amount of standing rain water. Here's our Blanco State Park PROS and CONS: Pros - Beautiful site along the Blanco River River, swimming, Campground has large mature trees providing 75-80% shade cover, very level campsites, easy to walk to downtown Blanco and Catholic Church Campsite firewood for a donation of $5, wooden shelter over full hook up, campsite picnic table & close to camper full hook up outlets in good condition. Cons: Heavily used park and it shows it, Campground restrooms also used by day users, One shower for male and one for female for entire campground, Restrooms needs deep cleaning, full hook up sites lack privacy, sites close together, No night gate closure, Highway 281 traffic noise noticeable when outside only, Heavy rain caused standing water in many full hook up sites, Gravel/dirt/grass full hook up sites (very muddy after heavy rain), No boat/canoe/kayak rentals available (at least not in early May). Very popular State Park. Reservations for weekend stay is wise. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

San Antonio about an hour drive away from State Park. Wimberley Market Days (first Saturday) is only 25 miles away from State Park. Limited retailers in Blanco; small grocery store in Blanco; prepare accordingly.

A small State park just off Hwy. 281 in the town of Blanco, so there is some road noise, but not enough to bother us. Close proximity to shopping and restaurants. Good interior roads (chip seal) and mostly level, roomy sites. Some sites have covered picnic tables, and many have shade. Sites in full-hookup loop are arranged in a circle, like spokes of a wheel, with a large grassy area in the middle. Easy river access for fishing, etc. Nice road along the river to walk dogs. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park setting close on the Blanco river. Level back in with some shade. all utilities were good. Glad we had a reservation because it filled up on the weekend. Park police made regular rounds throughout the day. Bathrooms were well kept, but there are a lot of tent sites and on the weekend the restrooms were quite busy. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice small park with a unique entry thru the river. Paved roads, sites are level and well spaced. Not much reception for OTA TV service. Trees needed to trimmed up to clear class A motorhome. Sits along the river but you can't see the water from the sites, just a short walk. Would stay here again. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.

Small park close to town. Trail from park connects right to the town square. Full hookup sites are in the center of the loop, so no scenic views. Beautiful river and dams but not seen from RV sites. Quiet park and felt safe. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Ranger, when we checked in, was the most unfriendly person. Didn't smile the whole encounter. Most of the premium sites were taken by out of state "long timers". But we were able to get one of the few leftovers. Since Texas has a 14 day limit, I don't know how this comes to be. Our campsite must not have been policed for there was dog dirt all over it. Never saw a Park Host walk around. When I did need something, I walked over to their site and she was too busy talking on the phone. The Host's site was the messiest. Lots of junk. Lots of road noise and one man was power washing his rig. We won't be back. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second time staying at this park. It's an interesting drive into the park, right across a small dam.
They have full hookups available.
Easy back-in sites with covered picnic tables. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Whenever I am in the vicinity of this little jewel of a park, it is my primary camp of choice. The rangers and park hosts are professional, helpful and friendly. The park is well cared for and maintained and there numerous recreational activities within the park and in the Blanco, Texas area to choose from. We camped at Blanco State Park in a Truck Camper.

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.

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.
