Among the earliest Texas parks improved by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Blanco State Park’s limestone and timber buildings, stone dams, and low-water bridge, all date from a single eleven-month bivouac in 1933 and 1934. The park is located in downtown Blanco, just four blocks south of the town square. Activities include camping; swimming; picnicking; hiking; nature study; boating (electric motors only); and fishing.
