Abandoned Campsite in San Angelo State Park

We have all heard of ghost towns, but ghost camps are a little harder to come by, especially when they don’t show up on official trail maps.

A short hike from the River Bend Campsite within San Angelo State Park will lead you down a trail dotted with a couple dozen concrete picnic tables overgrown with cacti. They are covered by rotted wooden awnings, which allow the sunlight to filter through.
