San Angelo: San Angelo State Park

San Angelo State Park is on the shores of O.C. Fisher Reservoir, adjacent to the city of San Angelo. Archeological findings indicate some 18,000 years of Native American occupation in the expansive West Texas region, beginning with the Paleo-American hunters of giant Ice Age mammals. The presence of American Indian rock art, ancient animal tracks, and majestic bison add a prehistoric touch to this park. San Angelo State Park is also home to the Official Texas State Longhorn Herd. Activities include camping, picnicking, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding on multi-use trails, lake swimming and wading, fishing, boating, a three level orienteering course, and bird and wildlife observation.  Regularly scheduled tours are given to the ancient Permian animal tracks and Indian petroglyphs. Other tours include nature tours, hikes, Bison/Longhorn tours, equestrian tours, historic and prehistoric tours, and stargazing parties.   The park also has a hunting program with a State Park Annual Hunting Permit and special drawing hunts for deer and spring turkey.
