South Llano River State Park RV & Campground Guide

Texas

"Let’s go to the Llano" is a familiar cry heard on hot summer days across Central Texas. For many people, that means floating the river starting at South Llano River State Park, which is located about 5.5 miles south of Junction, Texas. This park, which is also located within 150 miles of Austin and San Antonio, is a great place to go paddling with your canoe or kayak. Other popular activities along the Llano River include fishing for bass and catfish and hiking the local trails. Be prepared for warmer weather during the summer months and temperatures dropping into the 30s in the winter, but otherwise, the weather is relatively mild.

Inside South Llano River State Park

Bring your raft or rent one nearby to float the South Llano River. Over 2 miles of river frontage make it easy to put a canoe or kayak in the water. Grab some plastic worms and try catching some bass or use perch to catch catfish in the river. From early October to late March, this park is home to one of the largest turkey roosts in Central Texas, and you can climb into one of four bird blinds throughout the year to see how many of the 250 species of birds that others have spotted within this park's boundaries you can see for yourself. This state park has some of the darkest skies in the world, so bring your telescopes to check out the stars above.
