San Angelo State is located on the shores of O.C. Fisher Lake just outside of San Angelo, Texas (pop 98,722). The lake has a wide fluctuation in the water level that can impact some activities. Whatever the level, the lake is usually stocked with fish and has been stocked many times over the years. Also, swimming, at your own risk, is an option.
The park has over 50 miles of multi-use trails, for hiking, mountain bikes, and equestrian trails for horse riders. You must bring your own horse. They even have campsites that you share with your horse. Pens and pole tethers are provided the water and electric sites, poles only at primitive sites. You may bring your own portable pens.
Check park website for scheduled equestrian events and other details.
My favorite thing about San Angelo State Park is the spaciousness of the campgrounds, even when full of campers. One year I stayed at the park in my camper and did my all of my Christmas shopping in San Angelo.
San Angelo provides a lot of attractions including a restored Fort Concho, the River Walk, and Concho Avenue historic shopping district.
Also, there is nearby Lake Nasworthy and Twin Buttes Reservoir offer swimming and fishing.
