North Concho Campground is located on the shores of O.C. Fisher Reservoir, which was completed by the US Corps of Engineers in 1952 for flood control on the North Concho River.
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 Euro-American history of the area begins with 16th- and 17th-century Spanish exploration and the missions established for the semi-settled Jumano Indians. Some of these Jumanos made their way along the forks of the Concho River on expeditions to trade with Indian groups in central and eastern Texas. By the mid-1800's, German immigrants began to acquire land in the Concho River region. The increasing need to protect California-bound travelers led to the establishment of Fort Concho in 1867. From then on, farmers, ranchers, and sheepherders all contributed to the settlement of Concho Country, with San Angelo (originally Santa Angela) becoming the county seat of Tom Green County in 1883. Read how the Indian rock art, ancient animal tracks, majestic bison, and the Official Texas State Longhorn Herd add a prehistoric touch to this park.
There are 10 equestrian campsites all of which can accommodate horses and there are water and electricity hook-ups at each site as well as vault toilets and a water pump. Pens and tethers are provided so guests will not need to bring their own. There is a per night fee and a fee to enter the park but no reservations are required and there is no stay limit so come and stay as long as you want.
There are lots of wonderful fishing opportunities in the area which makes this the perfect place for any fishing enthusiast but be sure to have a proper and valid Texas fishing license before casting in your line.
Non-motorized boating is a great way to view wildlife and appreciate the landscape in the area. Motorized boating is permitted, so most non-motorized boats find areas away from high traffic watercraft use. Early mornings are also a good time for non-motorized craft, but be sure to have the proper license needed to operate a boat.
Swimming is also allowed and is a great way to cool off on a hot day or the perfect thing to keep the kids busy while you relax in the sun.
