We went to Blanco for the Annual Lavender Festival. It was our first trip to Blanco, to the Lavender Festival, and to Blanco State Park. We were pleasantly surprised by all three!
Blanco State Park is a beautiful little park. We had a great campsite. Very level ground, and very large. We had visitors almost our entire trip -- ducks. They loved our campsite. It was great sitting in the screened shelter and watching them. They were great free entertainment.
The park bordered the Lavender Festival, which was very convenient. We could walk from our campsite to the festival, which we did often. Our campsite was also very near the river, but did not have a river view. From what I could tell, you had to get a screened shelter to have a river view. The restrooms were also close to our campsite.
Speaking of restrooms, they were my only complaint with this park. There are not enough restrooms to support the number of campsites. We waited in line for quite some time to take showers. There was little to no ventilation in the restrooms, so waiting for the showers was very uncomfortable.
Back to more positive things. Some private land borders a section of the park. The people who own the land have goats and llamas. It was pretty cool walking over and talking to the animals every morning.
We really enjoyed our stay at Blanco State Park and will definitely camp there again.
