A great place to get away. Camp it, bike it, fish it, golf it, watch it. Really is a step away from the normal central Texas landscape and a great place to get away.

After the fires in 2011, the area has undergone some planting of new pine trees. Views from certain areas are great and there is a lake in the park that is small but has fishing. The cabins were spared in the fires and are nice and affordable.

Spent the July 4th weekend here at Bastrop State Park and our stay was not as I envisioned it. I knew about the fire that ravaged most of the forestry in the park in 2011 and I knew that the dam had broken due to the heavy flooding in May. However, I had no idea that Lake Bastrop cease to... More

I was fortunate to visit this park before the devastating fires. I also was glad that I was able to return to the park in the fall following the fires. The cabins are wonderful and very clean. It's nice to witness the rebuilding and re growth of the park and know that it is going in the right direction. I... More

This is a great State park with many of the buildings constructed by the CCC Civilian Conservation Corps. Nice trails and a great camping area.

If you like camping, then this is one park to be. We were here with a large group of friends and its very quiet. The burnt trees have their own majestic feeling.

The layout and theme was so great for kids and adults. The way they have positioned each dinosaur is creative and thoughtful. Our little man is a dino FREAK, and we've rarely seen him this enthusiastic at any theme park (even Universal Studio's Jurassic Park). Thank you Dinosaur Park for one of the best memories from our Spring Break 2015.

I have been to the state park years ago (before the wildfires) and recently. The landscape has changed but the area is still a beautiful place to spend time enjoying the outdoors.

The park is having the trees reforested, and it's a GREAT family place to visit. There is so much to do here and in the surrounding area. You'll have a great time hiking, fishing and visiting with other campers.
