  • We were park hosts Oct - Dec 2017. The park is going through its rebirth after the fire 7 yrs ago. Pines are over 15 ft tall, flowers and wild grasses are growing, birds are back. The bathrooms are ne...  more »

  • We like to visit state parks and hike the trails but the trails are NOT clearly marked. The sun went down on us because the trails were not marked in accordance with the map, specifically the red trail. However, I did like that they had green recycle bins throughout the park. The area suffered from a forest fire back in 2011 and it is beautiful now. It was very interesting seeing the church graveyard, seeing the new and old forest together.
  • Spent the weekend here recently with a group of about 60 participants. Most of us stayed in the park and we rented the Refectory for a day. The office staff were friendly and helpful. But the bathrooms were not kept clean or stocked with paper. And most of all you need to watch out for the park police. The officers gave several of the folks in our group a hard time for visiting other campsites and having items in a scavenger hunt stationed at their campsites. Also, we were informed that there is now some kind of "park curfew". We were out for a night hike and an officer stopped us and said that we HAD to be back in our camp site by 10:00 pm and could not be out and about in camp. Now I know that quiet time is at 10, and by no means were we being loud, but I have never heard of an in park curfew. Just watch out for them, they are "citation" writing happy, and who knows who will be their next victim. For me, I'm going somewhere else!
  • Stayed at site #66 for a few nights and had a blast over valentine's day! The real winner of this park is the bathroom facilities... At least 8 toilets and 4(?) private shower stalls with a private dry dressing area in each stall. In the breeze way there's a dish washing station that was WONDERFUL!
  • My wife and I took our 3 and 6 year old kids on their first camping trip here Easter weekend 2018. We were so amazed at how beautiful this park is, even after the fires. I can't say enough good things about it! We stayed in Deer Run at site #34. The canopy of pine trees was just perfect for that deep woods feel we were hoping for. The park staff was amazing. The bath house was the BEST I've ever seen. Super clean restrooms with even a dishwashing station. Our kids linked up with so many kids here at the nice playground which was just a short walk from our campsite. Super friendly neighbors that weekend too! Don't worry if you forget items, a lot of shopping super close by. We didn't get a chance to try out the trails since we stayed only one night and our kids seemed content to play close to camp. We already have a spot reserved for Mothers Day weekend where we'll try out the trails and do a bit of fishing. Our only complaint (which isn't stopping us from going back) is road noise. The park is close enough to the main highway that during quiet hours you can hear quite a bit of it. We heard some people doing burnouts which scared us to death sometime after midnight. Even with that, I say come!! You won't regret staying here!! P.S The park called today to inform us my gold wedding band was found by a camper that took our spot after we left. Just WOW! We are so relieved it was found, and that the park went the extra step to find it's owner and contact us.
  • Love the Bastrop state park. Great views, clean park and excellent place for family outings. The hiking trails are fantastic and the help is very friendly, able to answer each and every question. At only 5 bucks for an entire day, it is most definitely worth it. 10/10 would recommend for anyone to go to.
