San Angelo State Park is a gem for us in West Texas, offering trails for hiking, biking, and equestrian activities as well as camping. The North Concho campsite and Bald Eagle have a creek running thru it (on wet years) with beautiful tall trees and grass. There is a pavilion with tables for meals and meetings in the North Concho side. At this time of year we may see some scout monarch butterflies . Campsites are big and spacious and there are pens on most electric and primitive sites. Camping around pavilion and Bald Eagle area will require you to bring your own pens.


General Information and Requirements:

Everyone must show proof of negative Coggins test.  All dogs must be on a leash.  No dogs in the pavilion during meal times.  Wheelbarrows will be provided for your use to pick up manure. Pick up your trash.  Do not attach your horse pen to any permanent structure on the property such as fences.  There will be designated areas for generator and non-generator use.
