In Texas, on the banks of the Concho River and the O.C. Fisher Reservoir sits the natural, historical San Angelo State Park. The park offers a variety of things to do and places to explore. Enjoy nature, relax, and spend the day or the weekend with your family or furry companions.
In the water, visitors to San Angelo State Park may fish, swim, paddle, and boat on the Concho River or the O.C. Fisher Reservoir. If you fish from shore, you do not need a fishing permit. The lake offers a boat ramp and loans fishing gear for use in the park.
On land, guests can camp, hike, bike, horseback ride, geocache, and even check out the bison and longhorn paddocks, which are relics of the early days of Texas. Campers can choose from primitive hike-in or drive-in sites or those with water and electricity hookups. You may also camp with your horse at the park’s equestrian campsite area.
The park offers 50 miles of multi-use trails for exploring. You can hike, bike, ride your horse, or bring your kids on the Dinosaur Trail, which passes fossilized trackways. If you go hiking with your pet, always bring plenty of water for both you and your dog.
Bring waste bags and always clean up after your pet. Always keep your dog on a leash no longer than six feet in length, and do not allow your dog to disturb wildlife or become a nuisance to other park visitors. In Texas state parks, pets are permitted in most campgrounds and trails, but are not allowed inside any buildings.
San Angelo State Park is open daily. Admission is $4 per day for adults, but children 12 and under may enter free of charge. Reservations can be made in advance by calling the park office during business hours or through the park’s website.
