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.

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.
