San Angelo State Park

West Texas Crossroads

History and nature converge on the banks of O.C. Fisher Reservoir and the Concho River, near San Angelo. Ex­plore on land, play in the water, and enjoy a look at Texas’ past.

Things to Do

On land, you can camp, hike, bike, ride horses and geocache. Visit the wildlife observation area to see local resi­dents. You can fish, swim, boat and paddle on the lake and river.

Stop by the bison and longhorn pad­docks to see relics of Texas’ early days. San Angelo is home to the Official Texas State Longhorn Herd.

Hold your next reunion, meeting or group campout at one of our pavilions or group camps.

Read water safety tips before your visit.

Exploring trails

The park has 50 miles of multiuse trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding (you must bring your own horse). Trails are open to all users, unless otherwise marked.

Explore the two-mile Dinosaur Trail with your kids; the trail passes fos­si­lized trackways of pre-dinosaur crea­tures from the Permian Age. Or walk the lakeshore on the nearly six-mile Trailhead to Trailhead Route.

Try your luck fishing in O.C. Fisher Reservoir or the Concho River. You don’t need a fishing license to fish from shore or pier in a state park; but you will need one to fish from a boat.

The park has a boat ramp, but the lake level varies. Check with the park before you come.

We loan fishing gear (rods, reels and tackle boxes) for you to use in the park.


Choose from campsites with water and electricity or primitive drive-up or backpack sites.

If you prefer a roof over your head, reserve a rustic log cabin (restrooms nearby). Our group bunkhouse sleeps six and has kitchen, restroom and living area.

Horse facilities

Camp with your horses in the North Concho area. These sites have pole tethers; some have pens, as well. You may also bring portable pens. Water is available in the camp area and along trails.
