Casa Blanca International State Park #119

We’re parked in site #119 at Casa Blanca International State Park.  This former city park is located within the city limits of Laredo and with a clear view of the control tower and jets parked at Laredo International Airport.  Originally assigned site #112, we arrive to find it occupied.  Moving to the pull-through #119, we’re not too picky about where we end up for this quick overnight stop.  The sites on the “M” loop also look promising.  Water and Electric sites are $18/night, limited availability Water, Electric and Sewer are $21/night (plus Texas State Parks entrance fee of $4/person)

The ongoing construction of Loop 20 or Bob Bullock Blvd is making access to Casa Blanca difficult at best.  Approaching from the North, the exit from I-35 is nearly a parking lot with big semi rigs detouring around the city on 69W.   From the loop, the left turn into the park can be a bit frustrating with northbound traffic.  Upon departure, lefts turns are not allowed forcing you to head north, then make a U-turn as soon as possible.  Hopefully the new construction will eliminate some of these frustrations.  Of course for northbound travelers, easy right turns into and out of the park make things much less frustrating.

Next stop Harlingen for a day or two to resupply and then out to South Padre Island.  More from SPI…
