Our park here in Bastrop is lovely. The fires of 2011 destroyed the trees, but they have been replanted. Come watch nature bring a park back to life.

I wish I had been to this park before the big fire. It is interesting to look at now, but must have been stunning before. Lots of hiking trails with nice elevation changes. Full RV hookups. Nice view from either side in the Piney Hill section. Nice, GIANT bathrooms. Dishwashing sinks available near the bathrooms too.

The park itself is small, you can probably hike all the trails in a day. That was nice, but sad to see all the fire destruction. We stayed in Cabin #2 (I wish I had read the reviews before we booked) - there is definitely a vermin problem. Not an issue, if we'd been made aware so we could have... More

There's also a dish washing station! Our site was 61 in Copperas Creek and it was very nice. The kids loved the trails. The park rangers were... More

It was clean, had many amenities and a buffet for breakfast. It has doors that lead to the hall instead of the parking lot.

We arrived Jan 2 for 2 nights. Be aware if you book a Fri you must stay Sat as well. I found this out when I originally tried to book just Thurs/ Fri. We were flexible but, not willing to pay for 3 nights for a big cabin. We stayed in #9 which has a magnificent view. It slept 6.... More

It accommodates 6 people, with 3 double beds. The room was very clean. I was surprised that bed linen, towels, and toilet paper were all provided, as we... More

I loved the hiking trails. Even though a great deal of the forest was destroyed by fire, it is still a pretty hike.

The lost pines that made up this park where mainly destroyed by wildfire in 2011. Having seen it prior to burn it was sad to see the devastation. Rangers helpful, sites were nice.
