On the Banks of the Blanco
Come for a picnic, afternoon swim, fishing trip or a weekend campout on the banks of the spring-fed Blanco River. We’re just an hour from Austin and San Antonio.
Things to Do
This small park hugs a one-mile stretch of the river. On the water, you can swim, fish, paddle or boat. On land, you can picnic, hike, camp, watch for wildlife, and geocache. Reserve the CCC-built picnic area or pavilion for your next group gathering.
Anglers fish for largemouth and Guadalupe bass, channel catfish, sunfish and rainbow trout. TPWD stocks the river with trout in the winter. You do not need a license to fish from shore within the park.
Swim anywhere along the river. Small children will enjoy the shallow wading pool next to Falls Dam. Rent tubes at the park store from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; return tubes by 4 p.m.
Bring your canoe, kayak or boat (electric motors only). Or rent a single or double kayak or tube at the park store to use in the park ($20 credit card deposit required). Rental hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; return kayaks by 4 p.m.
Choose from full hookup sites or sites with water and electricity. Or reserve a screened shelter overlooking the river.
