Good park, nice for a fun weekend

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.

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

This is a very nice state park. The scenery is not good bc of the fire but other than that it's great. The bathrooms are all brand new. They're climate controlled and clean. 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
