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.

Ugh Brenda E's review below really pisses me off. I've been visiting this park for 40 years since I was a small child. Stayed in just about every cabin. Cabins 1-5 are the originals and my favs, built by CCC in 30's. Cabins 1&2 are the best for 2-4 people. The kitchen in #1 is very small, but has the... More

Don't believe the pictures of the park on the website. It's ugly and the lake is awful. We didn't enjoy our time there at all. The cabin was a joke. There were dead bugs on the cooktop when I checked in. We were forced to rent a cabin that provided beds for 5 people even though my 3 sons always... More

The park is well kept. The area is breath taking. The camping spots are large, concrete and clean. Enjoyed a long relaxing weekend with dogs. Will definitely return!

This is our "home park" but we don't get here as often as we should. Lots to do here, which makes it a great day trip or camping. You can hike, bike, fish, geocache, and swim. Camping for tents, RVs, even cabins. Newly remodeled bathrooms and shower houses. It's connect to Buescher State Park, doubling the opportunities. A huge wildfire... More

This was our first time here, stayed four days, Thursday through Sunday in June, 2014. Relaxing, fun filled experience for myself and my little boy. There were many black tree stalks filling the woods but the new growth is about five feet or so now so there's green life pushing it's way up ! It's still a beautiful, HUGE park.... More

This park is wonderful. We stayed for 3 nights and cycled from Bastrop to Buescher Stae Park one day, hiked up to the lookout the evening of the next and did a 6 mile loop hike the final day. The contrast between the burned trees and green foilage is stunning. We were so pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the... More

Even with the burned forest, we still enjoyed our visit to Bastrop State Park. Our friends put in a kayak and enjoyed the pretty lake. I enjoyed the nice breeze in the shade. We also enjoyed the drive between Bastrop and Buescher State Parks! They also have a very nice restroom, in the park!

It was great to see the new growth comming back after the fire. We were lucky to see the park before it burned and know how beautiful it can be.
