    On the Shores of the o.c. Fisher Reservoir
    San Angelo State Park is a Texas state park in San Angelo, Texas in the United States. It encompasses 7677acre leased by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department from the United States Army Corps of Engineers. It opened in 1995 and is located on the shores of the O.C. Fisher Reservoir. The O.C. Fisher Reservoir was completed in 1952 by the United States Army Corps of Engineers with assistance from the Upper Colorado River Authority for the purpose of flood control and to provide secondary source of drinking water for San Angelo and the surrounding communities. The land surrounding it, which now makes up the area of the park, was leased to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and opened as San Angelo State Park in 1995. Native Americans, according to archeological findings, had lived in the area for 18,000 years starting with Paleo-American hunters of giant Ice Age mammals. European Americans arrived in the early 16th century establishing missions for the resident Jumano Indians. Facilities at the park include six enclosed air-conditioned and heated mini-cabins and numerous campsites with water and electricity, picnic table and grills and nearby restroom facilities. The park also has over 50 miles of developed trails suitable for hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian use along with 10 with horse pens. Boat ramps are available and a fishing dock being constructed. Add San Angelo State Park and other attractions to your San Angelo trip itinerary using our San Angelo trip maker.
