San Angelo State Park

category : Camping
San Angelo State Park is located on the shores of O.C. Fisher Reservoir, which was completed by the US Corps of Engineers in 1952 for flood control on the North Concho River. The park, adjacent to the City of San Angelo in Tom Green County, is an oasis of quality outdoor recreation in an area of west Texas known as Concho Country. It was leased by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in May 1995 and was opened to the public May 1, 1995. The property contains 7677 acres, most of which will remain undeveloped. Park redevelopment to its full recreational potential is expected to take a number of years. In the meantime, a wide range of facilities are available for the enjoyment of the visitor.

Activities: Activities include camping, picnicking, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding on multi-use trails, lake swimming and wading, fishing, boating, a three level orienteering course, and bird and wildlife observation. The park has a hunting program with a State Park Annual Hunting Permit and special drawing hunts for deer and spring turkey.

The lake level is extremely low. The lake bottom is unsafe. Swim at your own risk (wearing shoes is advisable.)

Facilities: Facilities include campsites with water and electricity (10 with horse pens); walk-in campsites (about 400 yards) which have picnic tables, grills, water and restrooms in the area ; 6 enclosed air-conditioned and heated mini-cabins that accommodate 6 each; two group camping areas; two group pavilions; over 50 miles of developed multi-use trails for hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian use; and 20 miles of backpacking; high level and low level boat ramps; a trailer dump station; and restrooms with showers. A fishing platform and dock is being developed.
