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

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

This park has a nicely planned swimming area,you can get to waters edge with a wheelchair if desired. Park is kept nice and clean. Plenty of great setups for camping or tenting!
