We enjoyed the rustic cabin where we stayed. The park attendants were very friendly and helpful. This is NOT a luxury hotel. The park has been burnt in a forest fire, and then flooded by a severe rainstorm. The area of the cabins was spared and gives a glimpse of 1933 CCC construction. The park does need restoration and maintenance.

The park is beautiful. Trails to walk, fishing and rustic cabins for spending the weekend. My husband, me and a few of our friends from Virginia and Georgia meet here each year to attend the Formula One race at Circuit of the Americas. We book our cabins all in the same area so we are walking distance from one another.... More

So sad to see this park in such bad condition - no golf course, sad trails, closed roads. The pool is still open. Park employees are still friendly and smiling in spite of the situation.

Love, love love, the CCC cabins. Very friendly and helpful staff. Park and cabins were very clean. Even though there is still obvious evidence that there was a major fire, flowers, new trees, birds, bunnies, butterflies, squirrels are everywhere.There are Fireflies! Make sure to bring your own coffee pot, toaster and cooking utensils, if needed. We stayed in cabin four,... More

This park used to be one of our favorites but the big fire in 2011 and the picky (although seemingly friendly) staff, including the macho-man police officers affected our desire to return. It does not seem like much has changed as far as the nit-picking, and the young; tough guy park police that are still lurking like they are looking... More

Knowing that the area experienced a very destructive wildfire some years ago, floods during Memorial Day weekend last year (2015) and considerable rain during the last month or so (April - May 2016) we didn't quite know what to expect. We were simply there to "scoop" the place out as a potential camping destination. We found a lot of regrowth,... More

We recently did the Wildflower 10K in the park. It was our first organized trail run and was fantastic. The weather was great and the park was beautiful. Although it doesn't have the same beauty as it did before the fire, it is coming back. Next time we return, we will have to camp and do our own trail run.... More

Most of the park was badly damaged by a big fire. The picnic and camping area was spared. It is a shame because the park had so much to give.

We arrived about 4:30 pm and wanted to drive through, but were told it would cost $5 each to just see it. We declined and drove over to Bastrop Lake where we allowed to drive through at no cost. The devastation from the fire 4 years ago is still evident, but the fire didn't ravage the lake state park.

My wife and I went to Bastrop State Park today. It has been just a few years since the great fire struck this area. I had driven thru the area on State Highway 71 and seen the destruction on this beautiful area. Amazingly, upon driving thru this state park we saw beautiful green foliage and rebounding pine trees throughout this... More
