San Angelo Riverwalk

San Angelo Visitors Center

Who knew there was a Riverwalk outside of San Antonio?  At the confluence of the North Concho, the Middle Concho and the South Concho Rivers, San Angelo has constructed a beautiful 4 mile river walk.  Along the walk are gardens, parks, exercise areas, golf courses and a river stage.  Beginning at the impressive Visitors Center you can stroll all the way along the river to the original “Block One”, the first location of buildings in San Angelo complete with Miss Hattie’s Bordello Museum.  Originally a town built to support the Ft. Concho Fort, San Angelo has grown into a city of over 100,000 residents including about 10,000 students at the Angelo State University.

In addition to the RV sites at the State Park, there is an very nice RV park located on the shores of Lake Nasworthy at the Spring Creek Marina and RV Park.  With rates up to $55/night, it’s a bit more pricey than the $28/night that we paid.  The Lucas Oil Drag Boat race is held on Lake Nasworthy in late June.

With winter weather beginning to clear to the north, we opt to make a move to Bottomless Lakes State Park just east of Roswell.  We spent 6 nights at Bottomless Lakes last year – complete reviews are here.  After just a quick overnight this year, we’re back on the road to Las Vegas, NM.  More from Las Vegas…
