Overview

A Large portion of the Bastrop State Park was destroyed by a devasting fire in September of 2011. The community along with the State and other organizations have been replanting the trees. Although it doesn't possess the same beauty it offers an interesting perspective in how a forest is regrown. There are still a number of areas that were not burned that you can see as well as a number of the Historic buildings. This park is listed in the National Historic Registry. There is RV and tent camping available. Bastrop State Park is located next to Buescher State Park and suffered very little damage. You can see the beauty of the Lost Pines, see what a fire can do to a forest and see the Lost Pines in their toddler stage of growth. Both Bastrop and Buescher State Parks are not far from the North and South shores of Lake Bastrop where you can enjoy a wonderful weekend at the Lake.

We didn't stay in Bastrop SP because I wasn't sure what the campsites were going to look like since the fire so we stayed at Buescher instead but spent the early part of our Saturday at Bastrop hiking. Lots of downed trees but I don't...More

We came with short notice because the other rv parks in this area are extremely sketchy. They had an opening for 2 nights with full hookups for $25 per night which was awesome. Well then we got nailed with another $20 charge for 'park entrance...More

Very cute cabins, clean but dusty. I would bring your own pillow and cover. There is no longer a stream running through but it's peaceful and has hiking trails. Booking usually 2-3 months in advance.

Camping spots were a tad small but we managed to fit. Restrooms were very up to date and clean. Staff was very friendly including the park police.

I did a trail run with TROT there, love the trails and shade! Our girls have been and also enjoyed the trails, although there is always whining when hiking with littles.
